Motion plastics for film and camera equipment

Lubrication-free for successful filming

Whether for "do-it-yourself" applications or professional camera rigs – the versatile drylin® linear guide system offers extensive freedom when it comes to their design. Specifically in the construction of camera carriages, also referred to as sliders or dollies, technicians, product designers or DIY enthusiasts can make their wishes come true and combine individual components. The total absence of lubrication and the very low noise level due to the use of tribo-optimised polymers and aluminium are only two of many arguments that speak in favour of igus®. In addition, energy chains and chainflex® cables ensure increased dependability even where high speeds and tight bend radii are involved.
