DDLI / Pneumatic linear drive


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

A great variety of guides are utilized in manufacturing systems. The pneumatic linear drive DDLI adapts itself ideally to these guides. It’s used in nearly all industry sectors as a component for automation tasks, but it’s found most frequently in the automotive and food industries. Depending on mounting position, loads of up to 180 kg are positioned highly precisely. As a special feature, the DDLI includes an integrated displacement encoder which performs absolute measurements in a contactless fashion. The shape implies the function which is integrated into the profile, but makes a compact and robust impression at the same time.
