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:

Central lubrication connection

Central lubrication connection

A single connection is sufficient to distribute the lubricant to all required locations on the drive pinion and guide carriage.
Additional lubrication pinion

Additional lubrication pinion

Together with the central lubrication connection, an additional rigid foam lubrication pinion ensures that the rack and pinion are optimally lubricated even during operation.
