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 required length.
Engineers have been using DryLin modules for many years now, 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, the delivery lead time is extremely fast, a typical system can be delivered in 3 to 5 days.
The standard drylin range has expanded their low-price, quick-delivery complete solutions by adding a NEMA motor to their ready-to-fit linear units. Stepper motors complement igus' DryLin linear drives perfectly, due to their outstanding cost-effectiveness, precision and simple operation."
Initially the igus motor range covers NEMA17 and NEMA23 stepper motors and is optionally available with encoder and/or brake. The motor units work reliably in a wide range of different environmental conditions (depending on the protection class chosen) and the NEMA standard guarantees global availability.
The company sets great store by the fact that the drive units for lubricant-free linear movements have been designed in such a way that they can also be driven by stepper motors made by other manufacturers. To achieve this, igus offers customers who already have a motor a 'quick-fit' aluminium spacer and motor flange connection to fit the NEMA motor.
