Belt drive with
two separately driven carriages
Function: The guide body consists of an aluminium square profile with lateral, parallel, form-fit, internal hardened steel rods. Two carriages, which are driven individually by a timing belt, move along the guide body independently of one another. Due to the rectangular profile high torques and loads can be taken up. In addition, a very high stability and low deflection are ensured for long axis systems. The belt tension can be easily readjusted via a tensioning device within the carriage. This device also helps to adjust the symmetry of the carriages in applications where two parallel linear units are used.
