In the area of automation and mechanical engineering, linear axes are important elements that can be used for simple positioning tasks or for the implementation of complex, high-precision multi-axis systems. Linear actuators and linear axes are driven in different ways. The two most common types of linear drive are linear actuators with lead screw drive and linear axes with toothed belt drive. Here, you can find out what advantages the systems have and how they differ from each other. Read the whitepaper to learn more.
