Replace recirculating ball-bearing guides with new performance drylin® T series27/11/2018

For performance packaging, mechanical engineering and handling applications, igus introduces the drylin T series with extremely wear-resistant sliding elements made of high-performance plastics. The tough linear carriages are available in four different installation sizes. Equipped with captive sliding elements made of iglidur J200, the system offers up to 50 percent longer service life compared to the standard igus material used for linear guides. The bearing clearance of the carriages can be adjusted individually to a precision of 20 μm. As with all drylin T series, the new performance series has the same mounting dimensions as recirculating ball-bearing guides. An online fact check page can be found on the igus website that explains whether the drylin T solution will work for a given application. A comparison list of ball guides to drylin T guides with identical mounting dimensions is also provided. For more information about the drylin T series or linear guides, please visit: or call igus directly on: 01604 677240
