Converting rotary motion into grease-free linear motion is easier and more efficent with drylin® linear actuators. Our belt-driven and lead screw driven systems are designed with our highly engineered self-lubricating plastic linear bearing liners and do not require any external lubricants. drylin® linear actuators are also lightweight, dirt-resistant, maintenance-free and quieter than recirculating ball bearings.
Our lead screw driven actuators are ideal for low-cycle positioning applications and are well-suited for moving heavy loads up to 25021N (5,625 lbs). We offer various lead screw diameters and materials, as well as stepper motors, DC motors and hand wheel accessories.
Our belt-driven systems are suitable for high-speed applications; drylin® ZLW belt-drives, for example, are rated for speeds up to 5m/s. Other benefits include long stroke lengths and no frictional heat issues.
All of our linear actuators, slides, and bearings are rigorously tested within our 41,000 square-foot test laboratory at our headquarters in Germany. For help deciding between belt-driven and lead screw driven actuators, refer to this tech talk for mechanical insights.
The drylin® linear actuator configurator is a comprehensive tool for configuring your own linear actuator, calculating service life, downloading CAD files and placing an order—all in one place. Simply enter your application parameters, choose from the recommended slide tables or linear actuators, pick your accessories and add to your shopping cart.
