Lightweight cantilever axis

The drylin® cantilever axes are suitable for many positioning and adjustment tasks and are characterised by high reliability in operation and by light weight. Applications in the vertical plane are particularly well suited for this purpose. When driven by a rack, the mass that is being moved is reduced. With regard to energy saving, power transmission to a rack is up to 30% more cost-effective than belt deflection. In addition, it is possible to connect grippers, pick up parts and move.

The benefits at a glance:

  • High, constant stiffness of the axis regardless of the length of the stroke
  • High precision
  • High speeds possible
  • Freely controllable installation position
  • Long travels can be implemented
