Linear drive expert, igus UK, is now supplying DryLin E actuators with polymer bearings complete with a NEMA certified motor. The compact, light and quiet system is available ex-stock, individually configured to the req
Some engineers have been using DryLin modules for many years, fitting their own motors to drive the units.With the new DryLin E module from igus, the unit can be bought in as a complete item, ready to fit. By building up the unit using standard igus parts, a swift delivery time is possible - a typical system can be delivered in 3 to 5 days.
"Until this point, the main focus of the igus linear drive product range has been on manual operation for format adjustments," comments Matthew Aldridge of igus UK."Now, we have expanded our low-price, quick-delivery complete solutions by adding a NEMA motor to our readyto- fit linear units. Stepper motors complement igus' DryLin linear drives perfectly, due to their costeffectiveness, precision and simple operation." Initially the igus motor range covers NEMA17 and NEMA23 stepper motors and is optionally available with encoder and/or brake.
