Rodless Linear Drive
By DE StaffFluid Power Machine Building
Festo’s DLGF rodless drive designed to fit in tight spaces.
Festo introduced its DLGF rodless linear drive that features the company’s proprietary self-adjusting end-cushioning (PPS) standard. Available in both non-guided and recirculating ball bearing-guided versions, the DLGF comes with multiple pneumatic connection options at different locations: Left or right side, both ends or from below. With the guided KF version, there are two different slide interfaces: One on the top for mounting pneumatic slides, and one on the side for mounting up to three ADN pneumatic compact cylinders. Two DLGF drives of the same size can be coupled together, although they can have different stroke lengths.
