The drylin® test laboratory and current test results

In the dry-tech® test lab, self-lubricating drylin® linear plain bearings, linear axes and lead screw modules are thoroughly tested. We conduct tests on our 29,600 sq. ft. facility in order to continuously develop our own products and effectively assess customer applications. Our goal is to offer the best products for every application we come across. We would be happy to test your specific application. Test results are beneficial for all customers, as they are stored in a database and incorporated into the drylin® service life calculator.

Key facts at a glance:

  • About 500 tests conducted per year
  • 29,600 sq. ft. test laboratory
