Linear direct axis
The dynamic axis all-rounder – perfectly tailored to your application.

Linear direct axis SLD

The dynamic, versatile axis is perfectly tailored to your application.

The SLD series is a new generation of SCHUNK linear direct axes. The dynamic, heavy-duty axes with electric linear direct drive ensure short cycle times and more productivity in high-speed assembly and handling processes. Due to the high drive forces up to a maximum of 2.4 kN, and a load rating of up to 106 kN, as well as the long service life, the axis is ideally suited for any industry – even for demanding cell production in a dry room.

Advantages – Your benefit

  • Almost no wear parts
    for long service life and reliability of the system
  • No mechanical play between the drive components,
    for fast responsing mode and high positioning accuracy
  • High basic load ratings
    for high bearing load capacity and service life
  • Integrated motor and measuring system in the axis
    minimizes interfering contours and space requirement
  • Can be fitted with absolute path measuring system
    less programming effort and time saving when commissioning and in operation
  • High dynamics for shorter cycle times
    therefore a high productivity is achieved
  • UL certification
    for use in the US and Canadian markets
  • Optional pneumatic safety holding brake as rod lock
    for high requirements on machines and personal safety
  • Optionally certified safety devices according to SIL2/PLd
    for applications that place increased requirements on machine safety

Options and special information

  • Modular encoder system
    The linear module is available with different path measuring systems. The incremental path measuring system has a 1Vss interface. The absolute path measuring systems are optionally available with the HIPERFACE®, HIPERFACE DSL® or DRIVE-CLiQ interfaces. Other interfaces are available on request.
  • Pneumatic holding brake
    The linear module is optionally equipped with a safety holding brake. This holding brake is pneumatically actuated. Its function is activated in a non-ventilated state. The holding brake is used to maintain the position of the linear axis in a currentless condition. The holding brake is also suitable for applications in the field of machine safety. Please feel free to contact us.
  • Further motor slides
    The linear axis can be equipped with multiple active motor slides. This allows special designs and customized axis solutions.
  • Certified encoder system
    All encoder systems are certified according to SIL2/PLd. This means that even demanding applications with high requirements in the area of machine safety can be implemented. Please contact us.
  • Version with food -compliant lubrication (H1G)
    available on request as an easy entry solution for medical technology, lab automation, the pharmaceutical and food industry The requirements of EN 1672-2:2020 are not fully met.
