Automating tasks greatly assists manufacturing effectiveness, enabling lower costs, shorter production times and faster response with local production.  The drylin® E modular gantry system from igus® provides a simple, affordable and reliable way of automating pick-and-place, test and measurement, or labelling and marking functions.

A complete system can be easily constructed utilising drylin® E linear modules, toothed belts, gear racks and NEMA stepper motors.  igus® energy chains and cabling are used to protect wiring during movement and assist gantry operation.

The maintenance-free drylin® E flat gantry requires no external lubrication and offers clean, corrosion free operation.  It is suitable for loads up to 30kg, and can reach speeds of up to 1.5m/s.  Go to the igus® website, configure a gantry to have a full system assembled and shipped in 24 hours at:
