Nowadays, a modern car seat has many manual and electronic adjustment options. Whether in the height, length, leg rest, armrest or headrest adjustment, whether in the folding mechanism or in the seat rotation: durability and reducing noise and weight are essential requirements for components in every modern seat construction. Our bearing technology and energy chain systems are ideal for this use.
Robust drylin material offers a long-lasting and maintenance-free solution even in the case of frequent adjustments, e.g. car sharing. Latching points in the guide rail allow for an incremental adjustment.
drylin linear guides slide on polymers and have no sensitive components such as recirculating ball bearing guides. Therefore, they are resistant to dirt and heat, corrosion-free and have low moisture absorption.
Depending on the material, igubal coupling joints can be used at high temperatures and are therefore ideally suited for use in turbochargers. They are also dirt-resistant and corrosion-free.
In contrast to coupling joints made of heavy metal, igubal plastic coupling joints show a low coefficient of wear and withstand frequent loads, in addition to the weight advantage.
