Linear guide rails – the alternative to recirculating ball bearings

Slide instead of roll – the drylin® T linear guide rails is based on that principle. In the process, the drylin® T guide rails makes the exchange from a recirculating ball bearing system to a sliding system as easy as possible. Connector and hole dimensions of drylin® linear rails and linear carriages are identical to those of conventional recirculating ball bearing systems.

The centrepiece of the guide carriage consists of lubrication-free and extremely long-life sliding elements made of igus® high-performance polymers. Quick and easy to handle and maintenance-free in use. The guide rails made of hard anodised aluminium are tough and corrosion-resistant.
Our rails can be joined together to make unlimited lengths, unlike ball bearing systems.

drylin® T slides instead of roll

The drylin® linear bearings enable maintenance-free and lubrication-free operation of parts of machines and equipment whose function is determined by relative movements in a straight line between components. The special dry-tech® high-performance plastics of the bearing bushings ensure that machine elements can be moved along a shaft or profile guide silently and with little friction. Compared to linear solutions with rolling elements, the acquisition costs are up to 40% lower and there are no additional operating costs.In linear ball bearings, one or several rows of balls support the shaft. To work properly, they need a ball recirculation system that guides the balls back in the direction opposite to the shaft's direction of movement. The ball recirculation system and the high level of stress on the balls due to the load being applied to a small point on each ball are factors that result in potential weak spots and noise. Recirculating ball systems can be replaced with igus® linear bearings of the drylin® series in nearly all areas of use. Due to their simple structure, the drylin® linear plain bearings have very little susceptibility to failure. Lubrication-free operation means that the machine parts remain free of dirt, dust and moisture. Another advantage is the very quiet operation of the drylin® linear bearings.
