Adapter kit enables linear bearing systems to be built easily

Adapter kit enables linear bearing systems to be built easily The drylin E motor driven linear modules from igus are used in automation, robotics, packaging machines and machine tools.  Design engineers often have to build their own gantry systems to give an X-Y or X-Y-Z unit, and this involves making many special components.  To help engineers design such gantries easily, igus has now launched a range of adapter kits to connect motors, assemble XX-Y units and other gantry systems which could be used, for example, in pick and place machines.  

These adapter kits are available for both drylin leadscrew units and belt drive modules, allowing both precision and high speed linear bearing systems to be built easily.  All motor flanges, screws, and connecting plates can now be supplied from a single source.
