drylin® T linear bearing products

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.

Selected application examples

The drylin® T guide rails are identical in terms of design and dimensions with a large number of recirculating ball bearing systems. This makes one to one replacement very easy. The robust rail guide additionally guarantees a long service life of up to 50,000 km.

Same dimensions as recirculating ball bearing guides now also possible with our drylin® W system

We have added the WW-10-40-T20-AL carriage to our drylin® W range to match our drylin® T series. It has the same connection dimensions as recirculating ball bearing guides, is quiet thanks to our sliding function and does not require any lubrication at all.

Suitable for drylin® standard rails:
  • WS-10-40 (hard-anodised)​
  • WS-10-40-CA (silver clear-anodised)
  • WSX-10-40 (high profile)
