Spindle axis ELGC-BS

The reasonably priced axis family ELGC allows you to realize incredibly compact dimensions and make the most of your installation space – for small parts handling, desktop applications and much more. The spindle axes also offer impressive guide precision and a ball screw drive.
  • Internal guide and ball screw drive
  • Space-saving position sensing
  • Flexible motor mounting
  • The toothed belt axes, spindle axes ELGC and mini slides EGSC form a scalable modular system for compact automation
  • Variants recommended for production systems for manufacturing lithium-ion batteries

The spindle axes ELGC-BS stand out thanks to their internal spindle and recirculating ball bearing guide which are protected by a permanent stainless-steel cover strip, as well as their weight-optimised design. They promise precise and smooth running, whether installed horizontally or vertically.

The mounting elements for axis/axis assembly enable the spindle axes ELGC-BS to be directly assembled with the toothed belt axes ELGC-TB and the mini slide EGSC without additional adapter plates.
