Self-Lubricating Linear Bearings from drylin®

The need for external lubrication is eliminated with drylin® solutions

All  drylin® linear bearing systems operate without external lubrication. They are 100 percent self-lubricating and dry-running, as the plastic sliding elements are embedded with solid lubricants that get released during movement. The lack of messy oil and grease means that dust or dirt particles never adhere, making them hygienic and ideal for use in lab automation, furniture or food packaging machinery. The self-lubrication also makes the solutions odorless, non-allergenic and environmentally-friendly. Get a complete look into how external lubricants are a main cause of failure, as well as the benefits of switching to a self-lubricating solution in this white paper. To find the drylin® system you need, browse the online shop.
