Do without lubricants completely

For linear technology made of metal, lubrication is indispensable as otherwise it could rust, seize or become severely worn. With our linear technology, which relies on plastic for moving parts, you do not need even a single drop of lubricant. That way, you can benefit from complete freedom from maintenance, high resistance to dirt and significant hygienic standards.

drylin® linear technology is lubrication-free
Corrosion-free drylin® linear technology


Corrosion? No, thank you!

Plastic linear technology has a crucial advantage over such technology made of metal: it is completely corrosion-free. Even in corrosive environments, drylin linear technology continues to operate quietly and has a long service life - completely without maintenance.

Save up to 50% weight

Linear technology made of metal is very heavy. But drylin linear technology is very lightweight as it is made of plastic and  aluminium, making it a better alternative for many applications.  Plastic linear technology is often used in the automotive industry and aerospace engineering. Wherever low weight is important, our lightweight plastic linear technology is a good solution.
