WOOD DALE, IL - The new MovoZ ZB underlines Danaher Motion’s commitment to providing industry with the broadest and most cost effective range of linear motion products. Manufactured in Sweden, the MovoZ ZB industrial lifting actuator has been specifically designed for dynamic manufacturing applications where a long, low maintenance life is essential.

Reliability, accuracy and speed are product selection criteria that will be familiar to every engineer. So Danaher’s design team have included these specific attributes in the new MovoZ ZB industrial lifting actuator. The MovoZ ZB uses a belt drive and ball guide along a Z axis which can withstand a high side load capacity while maintaining high speed movement, up to 2.5 m/s, thanks to the low inertia of the moving parts. There is no slippage from the belt drive and the product claims almost silent operation; something which is of increasing importance in today environmentally aware workplace.

By using a belt drive and ball guides the MovoZ ZB offers a high degree or reliability while flexibility is ensured due to a stoke length of 2.5 meters and a load capacity of 500N. Repeatability of +/- 0.1 mm and a resolution of 0.2 mm confirm an accuracy which is maintained in the most demanding applications.

Applications where the MovoZ ZB is being widely specified include the packaging and automation market sectors. Machines builders that are producing assembly lines, robot cells or special purpose machines are using the MovoZ ZB extensively. Palletizing, handling, and pick-and-place equipment is another area where the flexibility, load handling characteristics and speed of the MovoZ ZB have been clearly identified. In common with all Danaher products an extensive range of brackets and other accessories are available.
