Die Achse / Linear axis module

Discipline: Product

The HIWIN linear axis is a flexible positioning module for automation and machine construction. The sophisticated technology is reflected in the compact design and the quality workmanship. That the axis has been designed specifically for high-speed applications is evident in its dynamic form and the flowing transitions between the end blocks and profile. It presents a unified whole. This impression is heightened by the consistent color scheme and surface design as well as the continuous green “HIWIN line.” The unified whole this conveys is an innovation in this sector, placing a unique emphasis on the significance of the axis.
