Cantilever axis with gear rack EHMH

Reliable and highly dynamic: the strong axis for high payloads.

When the focus is on high rigidity and positioning accuracy, rack and pinion technology ensures very dynamic movement of high payloads of up to 200 kg combined with a long service life. With safety included as standard!

Installed in handling systems, the EHMH masters applications such as palletising and stacking in the packaging and automotive industries or unloading and loading machine tools with precision and ease.


  • Payload of up to 200 kg
  • 2 sizes
  • Stroke 250 ... 2,500 mm
  • Very high stability and torsional rigidity
  • Quiet thanks to helical gearing
  • Safety up to PL d

You can choose from a variety of options – what best suits your application:

Scraper on both sides

Scraper on both sides

Having scrapers on both sides protects the axis from external influences, such as dust, dirt particles and liquids. This significantly increases the service life of the roller guide in the guide carriage, and also extends the maintenance intervals.
Covered drive pinion

Covered drive pinion

The covered drive pinion not only protects it against contamination, but also protects the operator from contact, which could potentially result in pinched fingers, for example.
Energy chain

Energy chain

Mounting an energy chain is a neat and tidy way to ensure that the flange plate is supplied with energy and data. It helps to protect the cabling and tubing, significantly reduces wear and tear, and thus increases their service life.
