Linear bearings from drylin® are maintenance-free & reduce cost

Calculable service life, fast shipping, maintenance-free

Unlike recirculating 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.
You can configure 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.  Check out all our drylin® online tools here!
