drylin® econ linear actuators are low-cost & ready-to-install

Simple positioning with efficient adjustment capabilities

The drylin® econ series offers maintenance-free linear actuators at an entry-level cost. These actuators are designed with lightweight, self-lubricating, sliding plastic carriages and anodized aluminum rails, with either lead screw or belt drives. We can also configure them for you so they are ready to install upon delivery. All of our linear actuators are rigorously tested inside of our 41,000ft2 test lab at our headquarters in Cologne, Germany. Those test results inform our online drylin® linear actuator configurator, which calculates the expected service life of a system based off of your application’s requirements.
