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:

Pneumatic locking unit

Pneumatic locking unit

During standstill, for example for commissioning or maintenance, the pneumatic locking unit ensures a positive, hard mechanical lock.
Clamping unit

Clamping unit

The frictionally engaged clamping unit directly on the guide rail acts as an emergency brake.
External displacement encoder

External displacement encoder

An incremental measuring method is used for additional position detection and can be used as a second channel in safety applications.
