Linear modules with toothed belt drive for extreme conditions

In applications with very harsh and aggressive environments, durable and resilient components are required. With the industry-specific range, applications with splash water contact, underwater use or even freezing temperatures are no problem. In addition, igus offers belt-driven linear axes for explosive atmospheres as well as completely metal-free solutions that are in demand in the field of automation as well as high-frequency and X-ray systems.

The ZLW series for extreme conditions

Icon for frozen temperatures

LT range For use at temperatures down to –30°C, the drive and deflection shaft end supports are fitted with cold ball bearings. The drive is implemented by a toothed belt suitable for low temperature.

Icon for splash water contact

SW range The SW ZLW  version is suitable for applications where there is contact with splash water. It is corrosion-resistant due to PU toothed belt with stainless steel tie beams and stainless steel ball bearings, as well as shaft end support housing made of hard anodised aluminium.

Icon for underwater use

UW range For underwater use, the UW type is ideal. The linear carriages and drive and deflection shaft-end supports are made of hard anodised aluminium. In addition, xiros plastic ball bearings are used. A flexible toothed belt with aramide tie beams serves as the drive.
