The powerhouse shoulders heavy loads

SCHUNK, the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems, now presents the Delta 145C

03-11-2014 - The SCHUNK linear modules of the Delta series are able to bear very heavy loads and are the specialists for demanding linear motions with high moment loads. SCHUNK, the competence leader for clamping technology and gripping systems, now presents the Delta 145C, a particularly compact module that enables powerful strokes up to 4,000 mm.


Its inner dual-profiled rail guide ensures maximum rigidity and precision, thus exhibiting superior performance in absorbing heavy loads. To increase the reliability and the service life of the module, a specially fixed plastic cover strip protects the guidances, and drive elements from dirt. The innovative family-owned company offers the module with the option of a spindle drive for constant high power and high precision or with an economically priced, large-sized toothed belt drive for extremely high accelerations and process speeds. The SCHUNK Delta series is finely graded and comprises a total of four sizes with profile widths between 110 mm, and 240 mm and strokes up to 7,720 mm (Delta 240C). With a toothed belt drive, a maximum driving force of 2,200 N, a maximum speed of 5 ms-1 and a repeat accuracy of +/- 0.08 mm are achieved. With a spindle drive, the series enables driving forces up to 6,000 N, speeds up to 2 ms-1 and a repeat accuracy of +/- 0.03 mm. They can be flexibly integrated into systems by means of T-nuts or mounting strips.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
