The tube system linear unit for light adjustment tasks is ideal for manual adjustments. The single-tube axes from the easytube range are available in three installation sizes. The outer anodised aluminium guide tube guides one or more guide carriages while protecting the lead screw and nut from external influences. The carriage, torque support, spherical thrust bearing of the lead screw and lead screw nut are all made from self-lubricating plain bearing high performance polymer. This guarantees a low coefficient of friction and low wear. The easytube single-tube guide is ideal for format adjustments and applications where the drive elements must be protected against dust and metal chips.
The benefits at a glance:
The production of baby nappies requires very high standards of hygiene, which is why easytube's single-tube linear units are particularly well-suited for positioning tasks in nappy production plants. They reliably withstand the high quantities of dirt and dust that are handled during the processing of super-absorbents and pulp and prove themselves in the area of adhesive application points. To ensure that the adhesive application head can be moved consistently from A to B to C, depending on the product, the lead screw of the single-tube linear unit is also equipped with a measuring scale and hand wheel in this application.
Whether it is heat, cold, dust or moisture: the easytube single-tube linear unit enables positioning tasks in a bag forming, filling and sealing machine even under the most adverse environmental conditions. A special advantage for bag forming, filling and sealing machines: by dispensing with lubricants and maintenance, they are ideal for use in the food industry.
In combination with other igus lubrication-free products, the use of the stainless steel single-tube linear axis helps to considerably reduce the maintenance effort in this solar silicon plant.
Numerous customers have already been able to optimise their applications with drylin's lubrication-free linear axes, prevent machine downtime, reduce maintenance time and increase the quality of their products.
Linear modules with trapezoidal threads are equipped with a self-locking mechanism. Many applications call for an additional clamping option as an extra safeguard against unintentional movement of the lead screw.
The position indicator for linear axes is used for setting and direct reading of the carriage position. This can reduce downtime, perform adjustments quickly and accurately, and reproduce values.
The hand wheels for linear units are available in several versions with different handles and sizes. This makes manual adjustments quick and easy.
