A: A linear actuator changes the rotational motion of a motor into a straight line. drylin® linear actuators use drylin® linear plain bearing liners instead of recirculating ball bearings.
A: drylin® actuators are self-lubricating, maintenance-free, quieter, lighter, corrosion-resistant and delivered from stock.
A: Most standard series use aluminum rails, zinc carriages, plastic liners and stainless steel fasteners. We also offer 300-series stainless systems for corrosion-resistance, carbon-fiber for lightweight and non-magnetic applications, as well as low and high-temperature bearing and belt materials.
A: We have various linear actuators to fit most needs, but static axial loads up to 75kg for belt-driven systems and up to 625kg for lead screw-driven systems.
A: Depending on dynamic loads, drylin screw-driven actuators are rated for between 200-1500rpm (depending on size), and up to 5m/s for the belt-driven tables. This is all dependent on load.
A: Yes, igus offers Stepper/DC/BLDC motors and motor mounts for servo motors, as well as various thumbscrews, hand wheels, and 90-degree drives for manual applications
A: Yes, we offer a wide range of drylin Dryve® controllers for a wide range of DC, BLDC, and stepper motors.
A: You can use our online configuration tool or contact igus direct for in-person application support.
A: Our systems are designed to be modular to meet the needs of most applications using off-the-shelf components
A: igus® lead screw-driven actuators have a linear positioning tolerance of +/-0.1mm, and belt-driven actuators are typically between +/- 0.2 and +/-0.35mm for single-axis systems. Please consult us directly as we may be able to provide more accurate systems depending on your application.
A: This depends on the size, but our screw-driven actuators have max stroke lengths between 350mm-1250mm, and our belt-driven actuators between 1000-3000mm (for the most common series).
