DryLin® linear bearings and linear guides

Dry-running linear motion

DryLin® linear bearings and linear guides are oil-free and designed to run dry, without the need for the messy lubricants, costly maintenance, or the downtime typically associated with re-circulating ball bearing systems.

The range is also resistant to dirt, dust and chemicals and other harsh environments. igus® performs thousands of bearing tests per year to ensure high performance.
