Belt Driven Linear Actuators: drylin® ZLW

Linear belt drive

The drylin® belt driven linear actuators in the ZLW series are suitable for many different positioning and adjustment tasks. The self-lubricating drylin® W profile guide acts as a linear guide and a toothed belt acts as a drive. The stroke is individually selectable. Thanks to the lightweight design using plastic and aluminum, drylin® ZLW belt driven actuators have a low mass inertia, making them highly efficient. Whether used for an individual system or a gantry robot, the ZLW series offers the ideal solution in both confined spaces and applications that require a high level of torque support . All drylin® ZLW toothed belt axes can be ordered ready for installation and configured with drylin® E stepper and DC motors.
