DB Series – Belt Driven Long Travel Linear Slide

Product Videos

The DB Series Belt Driven Linear Slide is offered in travel lengths from 400mm to 1500mm. The DB Series comes standard with a high torque NEMA 23 stepper motor or optionally, a MDrive intelligent stepper motor. Both motor options are also available with rotary encoders. An optional 5:1 gearbox is available for applications requiring higher axial force and lower speed. End of travel limit switches come standard on the DB Series linear stage.

The drive system utilizes a 16mm wide, steel reinforced timing belt to move the carriage. The carriage rides on 15mm linear guide bearings bolted to a stiff aluminum extruded chassis.

All DB Series linear slides are machined from 6061 aluminum alloy and black anodized.
