Fast and flexible label size and format adjustment, self-lubricating, competitively priced. Guide carriage is available with a manual clamp.

drylin® T for use in grinding machinery

Adjusting the pressing roller in a grinding machine

SMB MASCHINENBAU GmbH replaced recirculating ball bearing-rail assemblies with drylin® T linear rail assemblies for vibration damping.

drylin® T for use in an envelope inserter

4 cycles per second – self-lubricating and maintenance-free

drylin® T linear rail assemblies provide the linear motion for an envelope processing tool operating with variable stroke lengths of 4 to 10 mm (0.16 to 0.39 inches) and an output of 4 cycles per second. The linear rails are self-lubricating and maintenance-free.

drylin® T linear rail assembly for machine tool calibration

Machine tool calibration saves time and money

Equipment downtime, particularly for maintenance purposes, should be reduced to a minimum.  Precision CNC machining depends on properly calibrating drilling and cutting tools prior to starting the manufacturing process. Data entry and processing assures accurate and reliable production. The calibration device is mounted on a drylin® T rail assembly.
