Schaeffler Industrial Drives are following the lightweight construction trend that is visible in automation with the new ironless UPLplus linear motor series.

The UPLplus series is characterized by an improvement of up to 45 % in the force to weight ratio compared to similar drives. It is thus possible to reduce the moving mass in the application or use smaller motors by means of downsizing.

The customer benefit is clear: Productivity can either be increased or costs can be reduced.


  • Highly dynamic positioning operations
  • Downsizing and space-saving applications
  • Small moving masses
  • Shorter cycle times

Available sizes:

  • Three sizes with an active height of 30, 60 and 80 mm
  • Up to five primary part lengths
  • Peak forces of 120 to 1450 N
  • Nominal forces of 30 to 300 N


The UPLplus series has been developed for special sectors in automation engineering, such as analytics in medical technology, production, measurement and inspection machines in productronics, and air bearing axes. New analysis methods in medical technology have increased the need for compact, precise and dynamic motion systems at attractive prices. In productronics, improving the dynamics of drives to further reduce the cycle times of production facilities is still the major development goal. In all of these applications, the maximum acceleration of drives is limited by the relatively large proportion of the rotor mass in the total moving mass.
