In a long-term test, the wear of a drylin® E linear axis with motor is analysed.
In this test, a toothed belt axis of the
ZLW-1040 type and a stepper motor with installation size NEMA23 were used. The entire unit is free of lubrication and maintenance. The test simulates a moving stacker unit or a production plant that moves material.
The following parameters are used for the endurance test:
moved weight: 10kg
Speed: approx. 1m/s
Acceleration: approx. 3m/s²
Ambient temperature: 25°C
After more than 1,000,000 cycles, no visible wear is found. This corresponds to a travel distance of approx. 1,000km. The next evaluation will take place at 5,000,000 cycles, i.e. at 5,000km.
