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.
Due to it's sliding rather than rolling design, drylin® linear bearings are about four times quieter than their metal counterparts
drylin® linear bearings offer a low coefficent of friction, allowing for easy sliding and reduced noise.
The vibration dampening technology in drylin® bearings allows for less wear on the components and decreased noise when running.
