Low-Noise, Quiet Linear Bearings

Linear plastic solutions from igus® are four times quieter than metal

All drylin® plastic linear bearing solutions are exceptionally quiet-running. Whether your application requires a rail guide, profile guide or shaft guide, igus® guarantees quieter operation than metal counterparts. Instead of rolling on steel balls like recirculating ball bearings, drylin® systems slide on plastic, resulting in significantly less noise and vibration generated. The average noise output of drylin® technology is 20 dB, making it four times quieter than metal. Check out a noise comparison of drylin® vs. metal in this video, or visit the Engineer's Toolbox to learn more.
