Always on the Move: Hanover Fair 2016

Luhden – BAHR Modultechnik, a global market leader for modular, customizable positioning systems, will present its newest products at this year’s Hanover Fair at booth D17 in hall 16. The latest developments include the powerful toothed belt axes WKVZ/WGVZ, which are characterized by particularly flexible mounting options, as well as the GGT/K 90 positioning units, a very economical solution for lifting and elevating applications.The toothed belt axes WKVZ/WGVZ with ball bushing or slide bushing guides can be installed in various mounting positions according to the customer’s requirements. To allow for variable integration options, the robust bearing pieces of the axes are provided with M5 thread holes on all sides. Both bearing pieces offer the possibility to combine motors of any make from both ends by means of pivots or couplings. The carriage, which has been cut from one piece and offers a high loading capacity, is guided by sealed linear ball bearings on two shafts with 16 mm in diameter and achieves a very high positioning accuracy. The open arrangement of the axes ensures that no dirt can accumulate in the interior parts. Optionally, the units are also available with two carriages, which can be driven in the same direction or in opposite directions. The dimensions are 41 mm in height and 80 mm in width, while the length is freely choosable between 232 and 2000 mm.

With its positioning unit GGT/K 90, BAHR offers a cost-optimized spindle axis for wheelchair lifting systems and lifting platforms, which can be combined with motors of any make. Instead of cost-intensive guiding elements, this solution, which is based on an aluminium square profile with edge lengths of 90 mm, uses large, durable slide bushes made of plastic material. At request, the axes can be provided with an additional trap nut.

Due to its portfolio of linear axes with customer-specific dimensions that can be combined with all drive types and are compatible with any control units and motor types, BAHR Modultechnik is a globally demanded supplier for manufacturers from the engineering, automotive and energy industries as well as the pharmaceutical sector. The standardized connection profiles of the linear axes allow for an uncomplicated design of gantry axes for different applications. Depending on the requirements, BAHR Modultechnik delivers its axes with toothed belts, toothed racks, spindle drives, linear motors or direct drives. Due to the unique system variability of our product portfolio and due to the close interaction of design, manufacture, distribution and logistics, BAHR Modultechnik’s customers include many renowned manufacturers of special-purpose machines.
