Electric motors drylin® E - ready to ship within 24 hours

Automation with stepper motors, direct current motors and EC/BLDC motors

For linear axes and handling systems, igus offers a wide range of electric motors. Hybrid stepper motors or direct-current motors are used in lead screw drives, toothed belts and rack and pinion drives. The electric motors complete igus's offer of automation technology. That way, entire handling systems can be configured in combination with linear axes.
