The linear units from A-Drive are suitable for high-precision and dynamic applications such as the 3D printer. These are used today in many industrial sectors for the production of components of all sizes. In particular, the aviation industry is increasingly taking advantage of this opportunity. As elements of a modular system, the linear units can be adapted to the respective requirements of the components from small to large.
The industry is increasingly using 3D printers. For example, aircraft manufacturers plan to print larger components in the future. This requires large travel distances and precise positioning of the print heads with high dynamics. For these applications A-Drive offers the directly driven linear units from Sina Drives. These are very well suited for this because they combine all the required properties for 3D printing and at the same time are scalable - that is, the linear units can be stacked together to produce large parts.
The complete range of directly driven linear units form a modular system. The user can assemble flexible handling systems with appropriate accessories from the individual linear units. With the modular system, it is thus possible to tune 3D printers to the respective object to be created.
All components of the modular system, consisting of single axes and multi-axis systems, are very reliable and accurate. The linear unit of the MLL series is particularly flexible. It is suitable for applications where long travel distances are required. Up to 4 m is the length, whereby individual units can be lined up and thus also allow the pressure of components of larger dimensions. The MLL is available in the versions MLL 2, 3 and 5, which differ mainly by nominal forces and load capacity. In the MLL 5 version, peak forces up to 1600 N are possible.
