Linear Slide Actuators - Belt Driven

Single – Multi-Axis Actuators, 10 – 1000 Lbs. Capacities

Belt Driven Actuator Hero image

This video is actually one of our trade show displays featuring two carriages operating on a single rail. Each carriage is driven by a separate belt and a gear-motor from either the top or bottom. When we provide this type of configuration, the carriages are able to function together, opposite one another, or completely independent of one another - all managed by the controls programming.

When high speeds and long travel distances are required, Paletti toothed belt driven linear slide actuator systems are ideally suited for your material handling and positioning tasks. Toothed belt driven linear systems are easy to incorporate into single or multi axis applications and offer long service life with minimal noise and maintenance.

Belt Driven Linear Slide Actuators – Basic Configurations

Upright carriage configuration

Upright Carriage configuration – our most commonly used general purpose configuration.

Rotated carriage configuration

Rotated Carriage configuration – can be a very useful configuration when space restrictions limit the traditional upright mounting.

Omega configuration

Omega configuration – is most commonly used in applications where it is desirable for the motorized carriage position to be fixed, and the rail system then translates.

Belt Driven Linear Slide Actuators – Special Configurations

Double guidance configuration

Some additional product advantages with Paletti belt driven slide actuators:

  • Single axis through multi-axis configurations
  • Internal or External to the rail carriages configurations with either with hardened and ground rollers and rails, or re-circulating ball bearings and rails
  • AT10 tooth profile belts with easy tensioning and zero backlash
  • Multiple belt material options – pending application needs
  • End of carriage covers with lubrication ports and brushes to help keep the rails clean
  • Special long-length (20+ feet) models available
  • Customizable dimensions available for the carriage
  • Options for motor / gear reducer mounts
  • Options for mechanical or electronic limits
  • Easy to perform maintenance – without removal from the machine
  • Single piece carriage and rail construction
  • 8mm T-Slot mounting functionality
  • Corrosion resistant component options

Please Note - the numbers in the dimensional drawings and specification tables below represent performance parameters for our standardized models. We can always customize a model more specifically to your application.

Accessories Fasteners Thumbnail

Common accessories – Fastening Hardware:

The Paletti hardware has been custom engineered specifically for our products, and is quick and simple to use. Our central fasteners are an excellent choice for most corner assembly needs. Our T-Nuts are commonly used in some corner assembly or other assembly needs. Particularly, the push-in T-Nuts are very useful and also offer the benefit of being installed and positioned after the rest of the assembly has been completed and with the option for mounting the assembly to other surfaces.
