Cost effective solution for simple adjustments
For light tasks, for example the movement of bottles in a beverage machine, mechanical engineers often need a linear guide which is simple and space-saving. After all, high loads, high speeds nor high positioning accuracy are required. With many solutions available in the market being over-sized, manufacturers have the choice either to pay for features and functions they do not need or to develop their own time-consuming alternatives.
The new drylin ZLW eco lubrication-free toothed belt drive axes from igus makes simple positioning and adjustment tasks extremely efficient and, above all, cost-effective. The carriage and shaft end supports are produced by injection moulding, which is more cost-effective in large series compared to the more time-consuming production of metal components.
With it's compact design, quiet operation and light weight due to it's aluminium and plastic construction, the ZLW Eco is the perfect alternative to self-made solutions.
