IEF-Werner offers the complete product range for all imaginable "Pick & Place" applications from simple linear units prepared to attach your own motors to multiple-axis completely installed positioning systems.

Your benefits

  • comprehensive accessories such as motors, energy control systems, cable sets, amplifiers and controls
  • flexible combinations
  • standardised connection elements
  • comprehensive consulting service with motor design
  • free provision of drawing data in 2D and design models in 3D

Your individual linear system in just a few steps

The selection of a suitable linear system is based on various factors:

  •  Dynamics (cycle time)
  •  load (availability)
  •  moving mass (payload)
  •  repeat accuracy
  •  environmental conditions at the place of use

The new online tool supports you in configuring and requesting your linear system. With just a few clicks, you can adapt the linear system specifically to your requirements and send an enquiry to our sales team.

Linear drives

Linearantriebe Spindelantriebe | IEF-Werner

Spindle drives

Maximum load

Spindle drives combine large strokes with high precision at high strain.

  • strokes up to 1700 mm
  • recommended maximum handling weight up to 250 kg
  • speed up to 1,2 m/s
  • up to +/- 0.003 mm repeat accuracy


Linear drives Toothed belt drive | IEF-Werner

Toothed belt drives

Maximum distance

Toothed belt drives are ideal for handling across large distances. 

  • strokes up to 6560 mm
  • recommended maximum handling weight up to 150 kg
  • speed up to 5 m/s
  • up to +/- 0,04 mm repeat accuracy
Linear drives Direct drives | IEF-Werner

Direct drives

Maximum dynamics

Direct drives are suitable for quick handling with highest precision.

  • strokes up to 3700 mm
  • recommended maximum handling weight up to 50 kg
  • speed up to 5 m/s
  • accelerations up to 70 m/s²
  • up to +/- 0.003 mm repeat accuracy
Linear drives Cantilever axes | IEF-Werner

Cantilever axes

The modules are powered using toothed belts or spindle drives. Depending on design, they are also suitable for higher loads in vertical operation.

Linear drives Multiple axis combinations | IEF-Werner

Multiple axis combinations

Multiple axis combinations allow Cartesian movements in at least two directions. Multiple axis combinations usually are faster and lighter than conventionally combined axes.

Linear drives with metal strip cover | IEF-Werner

Linear drives with metal strip cover

Spindle, toothed belt or direct drives with metal strip cover. The metal band offers protection against incoming dirt or particles and prevents releasing particles into the environment of the linear unit.


Accessories energy chain system | IEF-Werner

Energy chain system

When using power chains - especially at higher speeds - an enormously disturbing noise arises. The noiseLESS system reduces these noises by up to 20 decibel.

Accessories levelling elements | IEF-Werner

Levelling elements

Levelling elements are specifically suitable for applications where precise adjustment is required. They consist of a levelling screw (fine thread) and a ball screw.

Accessories control technology | IEF-Werner

Control technology

Through the combination of our perfectly coordinated linear units with the IEF power electronics and IEF control technology, our positioning systems can be tailored exactly to your needs.

Accessories control cabinets | IEF-Werner

Control cabinets

  • complete installation of the IEF-control components in a functional control cabinet
  • different versions for 1-2 or 3-5 axes
Accessories standard motors | IEF-Werner

Standard motors

IEF-Werner has a wide range of servo motors with different feedback systems at its disposal, e.g. resolver or multiturn absolute encoder. However, on request we also prepare axes for the assembly of your own motors.

One-hand grease gun

The linear drives should be relubricated regularly. For easier application, we offer a one-hand grease gun with accessories. Even hard-to-reach places can be relubricated easily with it.
