igus UK has introduced the drylin SLN-27 miniature linear axis with polymer bearings and an optional NEMA 11 certified motor. Developed specifically for simple handling tasks in confined spaces, this high-performance miniature linear drive offers design flexibility for positioning small loads.

It is based on the proven technology of drylin N27 linear guide system and the linear rail is made of durable anodised aluminium. The plastic module has high wear resistance, is maintenance-free, self-lubricating and corrosion-resistant, providing a ‘fit and forget’ solution.

With compact dimensions of only 22mm high by 28mm wide, it is suitable for low load sensor adjustments and feed mechanisms, as well as lightweight handling tasks such as those found in laboratory equipment.

As almost all of the components used in the drylin SLN-27 linear unit are made of either plastic or aluminium, the system is extremely robust and lightweight. The carriage is driven by a 5mm trapezoidal or high-helix thread leadscrew and is available in a range of pitches from 0.8mm to 5mm. The leadscrew nuts are made of iglidur high-performance polymers optimised for lubricant-free operation over the entire stroke length, which can be a maximum of 250mm.

The compact SLN-27 can be bought as a complete system with a NEMA 11 stepper motor fitted, still achieving 28 x 28mm compact dimensions, and is made using stock components, individually configured to the required length. 

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.
