drylin® drive technology is maintenance-free

drylin® drive technology moves with plastic bearings made of high-performance polymers. This means that you need not a single drop of lubrication. Dispensing of lubrication means no maintenance for you. This also saves a great deal of maintenance costs.

Very quiet drive technology

drylin® drive technology is based on the plain bearing principle instead of recirculating ball systems. As a result, significantly less noise and vibration is generated. The application is up to four times quieter for the operator.

Extremely simple plain bearing replacement

The innovative WJ200UMA-01-AL pillow block from the drylin® product range makes it possible to replace the plain bearing liner even more easily without complicated disassembly work. The tool supplied makes it possible to exchange the plain bearing liner within seconds. This saves valuable time and costs!

∎Testing without lubrication

drylin drive technology in bend testing devices

Lead screw linear unit for welding seam bend testing device

igus drive technology allows testing welds for quality. In igus drive technology, a drylin SHT linear unit is used here as standard, which enables the adjustment of a bending die. As a result, bending specimens with a maximum force of up to 5,000N are conceivable. "Munsch Kunststoff-Schweißtechnik GmbH" relies on a complete solution with electric drive in the form of a gear motor.

No lubrication necessary

Our drive technology requires not a drop of lubricating oil. Not only our users, but also the environment profit from this. In addition, our tribologically optimised materials produce less abrasion, as a result of which less energy is needed.
