Courtesy: FestoThe ELGA-TB-RF belt drive by Festo uses roller bearing guides, it can be used in rugged and built-to-last solution for dynamic, long-stroke applications where high speeds, feed forces, and accelerations are required. The ELGA-TB-G uses a plain bearing guide for applications with small or externally-guided loads. The ELGA-TB-RF is rated at speeds up to 10 m/s and acceleration of up to 50 m/s2. The maintenance interval for is rated at 10 million m traveled. Repeatability is rated at up to + 0.08 mm. Working stroke for the new series ranges from 50 mm to 8.5 m. Feed force ranges from 350 to up to 1,300 N.
