drylin® W hybrid roller bearings

If you want it to run very smoothly

In a hybrid linear bearing, a combination of plain and roller bearings work together: integrated rollers achieve low drive forces, while the sliding effect of the plain bearings protects against lateral forces. This combination enables the absorption of abusive forces:

1. Reduction of the coefficient of friction
2. Reduction of the required drive force
3. Function of the system without restricting the 2:1 rule
