Festo’s ELGC and EGSC actuators designed for applications where compact dimensions are essential.
Festo showcases launched its ELGC low-cost linear axes and mini slide EGSC at IMTS 2018. Suitable for X-, Y-, and Z-axes applications, the spindle and toothed belt axes ELGC features a internal, protected recirculating ball bearing guide. The mini slide EGSC is ideal for Z-axis movements or guided linear individual movement in any mounting position. These two drives share technical features, including weight-optimized design, matching interfaces and adapter kits. The corresponding motors offer flexibility in mounting. Using the universal fastening profiles, EGSC can be combined directly with the larger ELGC base axis without an additional adapter plate.
