Igus has announced that its Drylin SLW range of linear modules now includes leadscrew supports, which ensure the smooth, lubricant- and maintenance-free operation of SLW linear drive systems for stroke lengths of 750mm or more.

The Drylin SLW-1040 is an established module within the Drylin range; the addition of the leadscrew supports eliminates problems such as noise or vibration, which can occur with long-stroke systems.

The supports are carried by the guide carriage and are positioned independently at a set point along the rail length. On the return stroke, a special mechanism within the carriage transfers the leadscrew support back to the home position.

Key specifications

  • Available in three sizes, the linear drive systems can reach maximum loads of up to 6,400N and maximum speeds of up to 500rev/min.
  • The drives are designed to withstand a maximum static load of up to 1,600N.

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.
