The flexible version

IEF-Werner offers the Modul 160/15 linear unit in various versions, including the GPA variant: This linear unit allows two surface gantries to be operated within the same work area. The user benefits from efficient assembly, a compact toothed belt drive and the ability to flexibly mount the motors.

With the Module 160/15, IEF-Werner offers a linear unit that, in the basic version, offers a stroke of 100 to 5,500 millimeters and a travel speed of up to five meters per second. The slide of the linear unit can be loaded with up to 80 kilograms. In order to be able to respond to the often special requirements of customers, IEF-Werner has different variants of the module in its program. This includes a version with two independently movable carriages (Module 160/15 G). Two motors move two carriages independently of each other via two toothed belts. This innovative drive concept can, for example, replace two linear units that are arranged next to each other for certain applications, which significantly saves space.

Two carriages, two drives

A special variant is the 160/15 GPA module. This is a positioning unit that is designed as a parallel drive: two motors can move two pairs of slides independently of each other. With this solution, two surface portals can be operated within the same work area to save space. A positioning system with the 160/15 GPA module can be installed more efficiently than two individual surface portals that would have to be aligned with each other. Another advantage: Due to the modular design, various motor mounting variants are available for flexible motor mounting.

IEF-Werner installs high-quality guides in the linear units, which enable dynamic and quiet movement. Although the guide elements are effectively protected from contamination by the toothed belt, additional wipers are used on the guide carriages. This also increases the service life of the linear units.

Users can use the 160/15 GPA module for a wide variety of tasks. These include, for example, pick & place tasks in palletizing, assembly or packaging systems, the adjustment of stops, joining and pressing processes in precision engineering or loading and unloading of machine tools.
