With the AZ 1040, Uhing is introducing the successor to the AZ 2004 toothed belt drive, which has been on the program since 1991. The AZ 1040 consists of a one-piece profile with an integrated slide guide. This design allows longer free stroke lengths compared to the predecessor. The installation and attachment options have also been expanded. This could be achieved by the integrated head pieces, which consist of the same profile. The principle of the T-slots was used to attach add-on parts.
