The coupling elements offered as standard for linear drives for connection to the customer's own guide have a design-related mechanical play. That is why accurate positioning tasks - whether with electric or pneumatic drives - are often only possible with self-developed coupling solutions. The carrier "Dard" from Festo has a mechanical clearance of less than 0,1 mm.
It ensures the compensation of misalignments up to 2,5 mm between the guidance of the load to be moved and the linear drive. The driver is available for drives of sizes 18 to 80 mm from stock. It can be mounted, even if the drive and guide are already installed. This is especially advantageous when servicing.
