Multi-axis systems: positioning and movement systems from drylin®

Multi-axis systems are machine systems that implement a predefined multidimensional movement. Based on proven tribology, all drylin products rely on self-lubricating linear units - enabling lifelong operation of moving parts without external lubrication, as well as huge cost savings, as the maintenance cost and effort are significantly reduced.  For fast solutions, drylin multi-axis systems can be purchased as pre-configured and ready-to-use assembled products. All positioning and movement systems can be individually calculated online and configured and ordered ready-to-install based on special requirements.  

The multi-axis systems from igus include a wide range of lubrication-free positioning systems and industrial robots:

  • XY-tables
  • Cartesian robots
  • Line robots
  • Low-profile linear robots
  • Delta robots
  • Gantry robots
  • Lift/rotate units and modules

Lubrication-free linear axis

If you want to build a multi-axis system yourself, you can rely on the large selection of linear axes, which are driven either with a trapezoidal thread, high helix thread or toothed belt. From lightweight solid plastic units up to solid stainless steel solutions - there is a solution for all individual requirements. In all systems, the stroke length is freely selectable and the optional drive provided manually or by motor.
