New Electric Toothed Belt Axis from Festo

New from Festo is the ELGA, a robust and rigid electric toothed belt axis. Offering high feed forces and flexible motor attachments, this linear drive integrates a plain bearing guided belt drive which is suitable for positioning lighter loads quickly.

The belt drive is protected by a magentically attached stainless steel cover to guard against the ingress of dust.

It has a service life of up to 5000km, is available in three profile widths - 70, 80 and 120mm - and provides high force feeds of up to 1300N at speeds of up to 50m/s². The axis can be specified in working lengths of up to 8.5m.
