In its in-house test laboratory, the Cologne motion plastics® specialist compared its cost-effective and completely self-lubricating drylin® SAW linear units with a competitor's product in a test of wear and functional performance. The nut of the competitor's rail broke after only 8,040 cycles. The drylin® SAW unit, in contrast, continued functioning perfectly even after more than 90,000 cycles at four times the speed.
