DryLin® W - Linear guide for almost unlimited leeway in design

drylin® W - profile guides

The drylin® W profile guides constitutes a cost-efficient pre-assembled system. The design allows extremely high flexibility in design and a simple installation by the application of individual or double rails. Hard-anodized aluminum is used as rail material and provides for the best friction and wear results by profile guides. The exclusion of lubrication also makes the system extremely insensitive to dirt and because of the cleanness it is well-suited for applications in clean and hygienic environments too.
