Treotham Au­to­ma­tion in­tro­duces minia­ture drive with NEMA mo­tor

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

DryLin SLN-27 from igus is a small, light­weight and lu­bri­cant-free sys­tem for po­si­tion­ing small loads that comes an op­tional NEMA 11 cer­ti­fied mo­tor.

De­vel­oped specif­i­cally for sim­ple han­dling tasks in con­fined spa­ces, this high­per­for­mance minia­ture lin­ear drive of­fers de­sign f lex­i­bil­ity for po­si­tion­ing small loads.

The DryLin SLN-27 minia­ture lin­ear axis is based on the DryLin N27 lin­ear guide sys­tem. The lin­ear rail of both the N27 and SLN-27 is made of durable an­odised alu­minium. The plas­tic car­riage has high wear re­sis­tance, is main­te­nance-free, self­lu­bri­cat­ing and cor­ro­sion-re­sis­tant, pro­vid­ing a ‘fit and for­get’ so­lu­tion.

With com­pact di­men­sions of only 22mm high by 28mm wide, the SLN-27 is ideal for low-load sen­sor ad­just­ments and feed mech­a­nisms, as well as light­weight han­dling tasks such as those found in lab­o­ra­tory equip­ment and cam­era in­spec­tion ma­chin­ery.

Light­weight plas­tics and alu­minium make the DryLin SLW-27 ex­tremely ro­bust. The car­riage is driven by a 5mm trape­zoidal or high-helix thread lead screw and is avail­able in a range of pitches from 0.8mm to 5mm. The lead screw nuts are made of iglide high-per­for­mance poly­mers, which are op­ti­mised for lu­bri­cant-free op­er­a­tion over the en­tire stroke length, which can be a max­i­mum of 250mm.

The com­pact SLN-27 can be bought as a com­plete sys­tem with a NEMA 11 stepper mo­tor, still achiev­ing com­pact di­men­sions, and is made us­ing stock com­po­nents, in­di­vid­u­ally con­fig­ured to the re­quired length.

Al­ter­na­tively, for cus­tomers that al­ready have a stepper mo­tor made by an­other man­u­fac­turer, igus of­fers a ‘quick-fit’ alu­minium spacer and mo­tor f lange con­nec­tion to fit the NEMA 11 mo­tor. en­quiry #150404.
