Linear bearings & slides by drylin®

Linear bearings and slides that are maintenance-free & reduce cost

Unlike re-circulating ball bearing guides that roll, drylin® linear bearings & assemblies are engineered to slide. Sliding elements made of high-performance, self-lubricating plastics allow the linear bearing assembly to be maintenance-free and resistant to external influences. The special materials also allow the linear bearings to run extremely quietly. By making the switch to drylin® linear bearings, costs are also reduced by up to 40 percent.

Calculable service life, fast shipping, maintenance-freeConfigure your own linear bearing assembly in just a few steps with our configurator tool. Choose the components that fit the needs of your application, calculate service life and send directly to your shopping cart.  Use the drylin® linear guide configurator.
