Cartesian Axis Systems

Linear motion is one of many automation solutions from specialists IEF Werner. We offer an extensive range of servo driven linear axis units from simple single linear drives to multi-axis positioning systems. There are options with toothed belt drive, ball screw and direct drive to suit speed, payload and precision requirements. Stroke lengths of up to 6 metres is possible and multiple axis positioning system combinations of up  to sixteen axes can be controlled using our PA controls system. Fully synchronised circular interpolation of up to four axes is possible with IPO control system.

The flexible application of the IEF Werner linear motion product programme makes it a popular choice among systems integrators. It has been designed to provide elements that are freely combined to create bespoke, multi-axes handling systems. They offer high loading capacity, high rigidity, quiet operation and are complemented by a wide choice of motors and controllers.

Spindle Drives

Maximum Load

Positioning systems with spindle drive enable high feed forces and can move high loads. They are particularly suitable for high demands on positioning and repeatability. In many industries, our proven linear axes with spindle drive have been used successfully as ready-to-install modules for years and are mostly used in handling technology and factory automation.

  • Spindle drives combine large strokes with high precision at high strain.
  • Strokes up to 1700 mm
  • Load up to 5000 N
  • Speed up to 1,2 m/s
  • Up to +/- 0.003 mm repeat accuracy


The Spindle Drive range includes: MS, profiLINE and Line series


Toothed Belt Drives

Maximum Distance

Linear units with toothed belt drive enable you to find an efficient and cost-effective solution to your handling task. IEF-Werner offers you the complete product range for all imaginable pick & place applications: from the simple linear unit prepared for the attachment of customer-specific motors to multi-axis, completely assembled positioning systems.

  • Toothed belt drives are ideal for handling light-weight to heavy components across large distances.
  • Strokes up to 5500 mm
  • Load up to 800 N
  • Speed up to 5 m/s
  • Up to +/- 0,04 mm repeat accuracy


The toothed belt drive range includes: easyLINE and Module series

Direct Drives

Maximum Dynamics

The linear drives of the euroLINE series with integrated linear motor, position measuring system and guide are a ready-to-install system with little construction effort. It is even possible to have several independent motors on one guide.
