Linear Axis Module

Red Dot
The linear axis module called “Die Achse” is a flexible positioning tool for automation and machinery construction. It is based on a profiled rail guide and an aluminium profile with large grooves for secure mounting on the machine frame. The fact that the linear axis module is particularly suitable for applications with high speed is conveyed by the dynamic forms and smooth transitions between the end blocks and the profile, they appear as if cast in one piece. This impression is further enhanced by the consistent colour and surface design and by the continuous green line.

Statement by the jury

»The self-contained form and clear geometry of the linear axis module convey high performance. Thanks to the choice of materials, it is robust and durable.«
