Examples of gym equipment parts for leg extensions

The most popular exercise machines for weight training include leg extender and biceps or butterfly on the multigym. The drylin® W linear guide allows for simple and almost silent adjustment of the height of the pad for leg training. Double profiles and carriages can be mounted quickly and offer a lubrication-free operation and no maintenance is required. For all bearing points on the multigym, iglidur® G and M250 plain bearings are suitable. They are recommended for every joint in the motion sequence. No matter where they are installed, they are corrosion-resistant, never squeak and last a lifetime.

Example rowing machine

If you would like to work on your cardio-vascular system, the rowing machine is perfect for you. Both rotating and pivoting joints can be adjusted ideally with iglidur® bearings – silent and without maintenance. The drylin® W linear guide systems that are installed in rowing machines are completely lubrication-free and can therefore be used in open applications. Their double-shaft aluminium profile offers high torsion resistance at a low weight. Linear bearings ensure frictionless, quiet sliding of the seat in rowing gym equipment parts.

Example home exercise machine and ergometer

The ideal sitting position also plays a crucial role with cardio machines such as home trainers or ergometers – only then can you avoid straining the knee joint, for example. Whether by hand or via chip card control, seat distances and height adjustments of grips and displays are made in seconds and tailored to your specific need. With its profiles and complete carriages or single linear bearings, the drylin® W linear guide offers the ideal system for each construction and every design. Especially for electrical adjustment, igus® energy chains and cables ensure fail-safe operation in every gym equipment application, even with the smallest bending radii.
