Automation with stepper motors, direct current motors and EC/BLDC motors

For linear axes and handling systems, igus offers a wide range of electric motors. Hybrid stepper motors or DC motors are used in lead screw drives, toothed belts and
rack and pinion drives. The electric motors complete the range offered by igus automation technology. In this way, entire handling systems can be configured in combination with linear axes.

drylin® E couplings

The coupling connects the drive pin of the axis to the motor. An elastic polymer insert in the centre of the coupling transfers the motor torque. This dampening element compensates for radial and axial clearance.

  • With square or round housing
  • 20 versions from stock
  • Vibration-dampening
  • Clip-on
  • Temperature range from -30°C up to +100°C
  • Shore hardness 98 Sh A
