Joint venture: Short stroke linear drive

halstrup-walcher and Ketterer Antriebe have jointly developed a short stroke linear drive (KuLi) with integrated control unit. The product benefits from the expertise of both companies. Ketterer Antriebe is responsible for the motor’s design while halstrup-walcher uses its strength in electronics and software development.

The result of the collaboration is an intelligent linear drive tailored to specific market requirements. Thanks to the compact design and highly dynamic properties, the KuLi drive is suitable for various automation engineering tasks. Its advantages as an electric drive make it an appealing alternative for the current pneumatic cylinders in conveyor technology, logistics and special-purpose machine construction. The KuLi short stroke linear drive is available in a variety of versions: The upstroke speed, lifting power, stroke length and connection can be selected to suit the application.

A prototype of the KuLi will be exhibited for the first time at the 2019 SPS in Nuremberg at the halstrup-walcher stand (Hall 4, Booth 131) and the Ketterer Antriebe stand (Hall 3, Booth 550).
