drylin® R linear shafts consist of iglide® plastic liners and anodized aluminum housings that are dimensionally identical to standard recirculating ball bearings. The plastic liner’s patented split design allows for easy assembly onto the linear shaft while the shaft is still in place. Plus, built-in slide pads wipe away debris, making drylin® R linear shafts ideal for use in dirty environments. Choose between multiple iglide® liner materials for high temperatures, FDA-compliance, chemical resistance and other technical advantages. They are available in both metric and imperial sizes.
Low-cost drylin® linear actuators are optimized to be maintenance-free and resistant to dirt. They’re also lightweight, quiet, and suitable for many applications and industries. igus® offers lead screw actuators in various shaft and material combinations as well as belt-driven systems for high speed applications.
The drylin® R quad block is an ideal pre-aligned, bolt-on solution.
Whether your application is high speed, operates in extreme temperatures ranging from -58°F to 482°F or requires FDA/EU-compliant parts, you can find the ideal plain bearing liner that meets your specifications.
drylin® R linear shaft bearings are self-aligning and offer great advantages in applications with parallel shafts. They can compensate for alignment and parallelism errors and should be used on the shaft located farthest from the drive mechanism.

The drylin® R linear shaft bearings are designed with wear-resistant, high-performance plastics and can be used in extreme environments. They’re also dimensionally identical to standard recirculating ball bearings.
drylin® R aluminum shafts are used in this grinder to guide the cutting table. The plastic linear bearings operate without any external lubrication, which makes the assembly resistant to dirt and enables smooth operation.
This saw moves over the entire length of the spools and saws into the film. The drylin® R range was used to guide and support the movements of the two axes, ensuring precise positioning for clean cuts and a fully maintenance-free plant.
The Mall + Herlan GmbH systems can extrude, coat and print many types of cylindrical aluminum parts. drylin® R was used in these systems since they don’t require external lubrication and are resistant to paint mist.
Recirculating ball bearings that were once used in this compaction unit had to be replaced every 2-3 months. drylin® R linear shaft bearings extended the maintenance rate by two years, despite the dirty environment and abrasive agents.
