drylin® linear bearing systems are engineered to have an extended, continuous service life, even when put in environments subjected to dirt or dust. The drylin® sliding elements are made of high-performance, self-lubricating plastic. This material is self-cleaning, meaning there is almost no impact on the service life since particles cannot adhere to the systems. The igus® technology has been proven and tested to operate successfully and consistently when exposed to dirt, resulting in reduced downtime.
drylin® linear bearings require no maintenance as their service life is easily calculated, which eliminates any unplanned downtime.
By using self-lubricating bearings in a dirty environment you can maintain consistant performance as they are not effected by dirt and debris.
By eliminating grease and lubrication, dirt or dust have nothing to adhere to on your bearings, which allows for smooth sliding in almost all conditions.
