Compared to metal, plastic is a very young material. Metals have been used by people for over 8,000 years. Experience in metalworking has been passed on from generation to generation. Where moving components are concerned, metal is regarded as the safest choice, whereby component lubrication and greasing are accepted as necessary tasks.
But what would it be like if materials for moving parts ...
… did not need to be lubricated and greased?
… were up to 70% lighter?
… functioned in dirt, chemicals and water without any problems?
… did not rust and squeak?
… had a predictable service life and were safe to use?
"I love solving problems. I am really pleased if one of our customers can be made happy as a result. Of course, this is only successful if I work very closely with the customer. I need to completely understand where the difficulty lies in order to find an individual solution. Occasionally, such solutions for individuals result in innovations that we add to our catalogue product range. Our customers therefore rely on our team as a driving force in the area of research and development. "
Stefan Niermann, Head of drylin Linear Technology
Our products have been developed for moving applications and very high levels of stress. They include energy supply products, cables, bearing technology, linear technology, bar stock, 3D printing filaments and low-cost robotics:
We continually develop and improve our innovative online tools . The tools make use of research results from the test laboratory and application-related knowledge. This enables our customers to plan their projects progressively, transparently and efficiently.
