Explosion Proof Belt Driven Modular Linear Actuators

The carriage is driven by an external linear belt that can be adjusted to reduce lash and is driven along the external roller bearings. The pulleys have maintenance-free ball bearings. Belt tension can be readjusted by a simple screw adjustment device in the carriage.

External Belt Driven


This special lifting unit consists of an aluminium square profile with hardened steel guide rods. The carriages, which have internal linear ball bearings that can be adjusted free of play, are driven along the guide rods by a timing belt. The rotating timing belt pulleys have maintenance-free ball bearings. One rotation of the drive pulley complies with 1/2 linear circumference of the drive pulley. Belt tension can be readjusted by a simple tension device in one of the carriages. This device can also be used for symmetrical adjustment of two or more linear units running parallel.

  • Fitting position: As required. Max. length without joints 6,000 mm.
  • Carriage mounting: By T-slots.
  • Unit mounting: By T-slots or tapped holes in the bearing blocks, or mounting sets.
  • Belt type: HTD with steel reinforcement, no backlash when changing direction, repeatability ± 0.1 mm
