drylin® W linear rail for smooth gliding

drylin® W linear rails were developed to promote design flexibility and quick assembly in both single and double rail configurations. All drylin® W linear rails are equipped with iglide® high-performance polymer liners, significantly reducing friction and extending service life. Both clear anodized and hard anodized versions are available, as well as stainless steel. Round, square and curved rails are all available with multiple variants of assemblies and pillow blocks compatible for each shape.

drylin® W linear bearings have numerous advantages over comparable ball bearing systems. The iglide® plastic lining generates up to four times less noise than metal bearings thanks to a lower coefficient of friction. They are also dry-running, removing the need for grease or other external lubricants which can cause dirt and dust adhesion when used. drylin® bearings can perform consistently in dirty or dusty environments with no maintenance necessary.

  • A wide variety of single and double rails
    • Single rails provide flexibility for their customized solution
    • Double rails facilitate assembly and reduce the risk of misalignment
  • Anodized aluminum or 316 (1.4571) stainless steel
  • A wide variety of carriage assembly options (single and double rail)
  • Self-lubricating and maintenance-free
  • quiet operation
  • Up to 40% more cost-effective than recirculating ball bearings
