Additional information on motors:

Step motors complement the drylin® linear axes well. They are characterized by their cost effectiveness, precision and ease of control. They operate reliably in a wide variety of ambient conditions (depending on the chosen degree of protection IP). The NEMA standard guarantees good availability worldwide.
