In this video the drylin ZLW linear robot system is explained in more detail by motion plastics specialist, igus®. This modular drive system enables engineers to design and configure their own ready-to-install linear robots with maximum flexibility. With the drylin® ZLW system, machine builders can address various design challenges and working environments in a diverse range of applications, rapidly and at lower cost than custom build solutions. Ideal for quick positioning, drylin® ZLW is comprised of a carriage-mounted linear guide, driven by a powerful, wide polyurethane or neoprene toothed belt. The use of iglide® polymer plain bearings on all moving parts makes the toothed belt axis self-lubricating and maintenance free. The lack of lubricant also makes the linear robot insensitive to dirt, as particles will not stick to moving parts. Consequently, the axis delivers a high degree of ruggedness across many applications. Available in either anodised aluminium, for the best combination of lightweight strength and cost-effectiveness, or stainless steel, for maximum resistance to corrosion and chemicals, engineers can configure their own versatile drylin® ZLW solution by adapting width, rail distances and length of the axes. The ZLW-20 variant offers a stroke length of up to 3m, three options on carriage width (120mm, 160mm or 200mm), and can handle an axial load capacity of up to 75kg and a radial load capacity of up to 300kg.
