ZLW-1040 belt drive data sheet - .PDF file.

Igus has expanded the motor programme for its Drylin leadscrew units and belt drive modules by introducing ready-to-install combinations of motor and linear unit for use under water or in a vacuum.

The Drylin ZLW toothed belt drive module with variable stroke length is said to be particularly well suited for positioning small loads. The ZLW-1040-UW is specially developed for use under water and incorporates a PU toothed belt.

Igus is offering this complete with a two-phase hybrid underwater stepper motor (NEMA 23) that can be operated at depths of up to 10m and features IP68 protection.

In addition to underwater operation, the drive units are well suited in applications that require regular cleaning with water, such as those found in the food and beverage industry.

For hygienic applications, the ZLW toothed belt drive can be replaced with the Igus SLW-ESJ-1040 leadscrew linear unit, which is made of stainless steel.

In the semiconductor industry, many processes operate within a vacuum to optimise yield and productivity. To work properly in such conditions and without contaminating the vacuum, the linear units need to be lubricant free, with low abrasion and corrosion free.

In these conditions, Igus would recommend the leadscrew-driven stainless steel linear drive module (for example, SLW-ESX-1040) with the NEMA 23 motor, which is suitable for vacuums up to 10-3mbar.

This stepper motor is also resistant against radiation up to 10J/kg and its housing is made of stainless steel; the permissible surface temperature of the motor is -20°C to 80°C.

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
