drylin® - replaceble, Glides instead of rolling!

drylin® is a product range of self-lubricating linear plain bearings that operate based on the gliding principle instead of rolling. Tribo-optimized iglide® high-performance plastics are used as gliding surfaces. drylin® linear systems travel in dry-running mode and are maintenance-free. Linear guides are available based on rails or round shafts. drylin® drive technology provides access to ready-to-connect systems with lead screw drives or toothed belts, with or without motor.
