The electric toothed belt axis "Elga-TB-G" Festo is suitable for applications when external loads are applied or when a simple sliding profile with a stiff profile is sufficient. With external guidance of the workpiece, the use of the axis with sliding guide is more economical than that of an electrical axis with recirculating ball bearing guide.
The Elga TB-G has a flexible motor connection and is compatible with all popular stepper and servo motors. The engine position can be freely selected on four sides and rebuilt at any time. The axis has high feed forces and achieves traversing speeds of up to 5 m / s as well as accelerations of up to 50 m / s².
The Configuration Tool FCT ensures a comfortable and fast commissioning. The design software "Positioning Drives" helps to safely select the appropriate axis. The toothed belt axis with sliding guide is available in 3 sizes and offers a maximum working stroke up to 8500 mm.
