drylin® SLW linear unit with lead screw drive

Low-profile, tough, & torsional rigidity

Extremely torsionally rigid aluminium double-shaft profiles and a large number of linear carriage versions based on the drylin W linear system characterise the drylin® SLW linear unit with lead screw drive. In addition to the low-profile linear rails, high, very tough linear rails are also available for the SLW linear modules. The SLW linear unit with lead screw drive is particularly suitable for manual format adjustment as well as for a motorised option for electrical adjustment.

The benefits at a glance:

  • Variable carriage widths and lengths
  • Low-profile linear rails or robust high profiles
  • Corrosion-resistant option made of stainless steel available
