Change linear bearing system and save costs

igus® linear bearing and linear guide systems are based on the principle "gliding instead of rolling"

The lubrication-free linear systems travel in dry operation, which makes them maintenance-free and resistant o external influences. In addition, they run especially quietly thanks to the materials used and the special design involved.
Only a few steps are needed to configure your custom linear bearing system online allowing you to save up to 40% costs in comparison to recirculating ball bearing systems. Furthermore, the predictable service life provides a great deal of planning security.

Selected linear system application examples

Acquiring and edge with drylin®

Precision is one thing, robust linear guidance another. With robust drylin® linear guides, NOVASPORT s.r.o. creates an edger for extreme conditions without any loss of the required precision.

Freed from dirt and dust

The mobile sawmill of Serra Maschinenbau GmbH has to work perfectly, be easy to operate and be easy to look after and maintain whatever the weather. drylin® linear technology is dirt-resistant.

Labelling - without rust

In the food and beverages industry in particular, special hygiene requirements have to be met. Machines and components must be corrosion-free as in the case of this labelling machine.
