Electric motors drylin® E - ready to ship within 24 hours

Automation with stepper motors, direct current motors and EC/BLDC motors

For linear axes and handling systems, igus offers a wide range of electric motors. Hybrid stepper motors or direct-current motors are used in lead screw drives, toothed belts and rack and pinion drives. The electric motors complete igus's offer of automation technology. That way, entire handling systems can be configured in combination with linear axes.

drylin® E stepper motor with metric connector, encoder & brake

Stepper motor with metric connector, encoder & brake

The brake can hold the payload in position when the motor is not under power, offering more security during a power failure. This is used as a safety feature during power failures. Especially recommended for vertically mounted systems.

  • NEMA17
  • NEMA23
  • NEMA34

drylin® E couplings


The coupling connects the drive pin of the axis to the motor. An elastic polymer insert in the centre of the coupling transfers the motor torque. This dampening element compensates for radial and axial clearance.

  • With square or round housing
  • 20 versions from stock
  • Vibration dampening
  • Clip-on
  • Temperature range from -30°C up to +100°C
  • Shore hardness 98 Sh A
