Linear rails: drylin® W & T

Design a linear rail to your exact specs or perform a simple one to one replacement

With drylin® T, you can rely on a tried-and-tested linear rail system that has identical dimensions to conventional recirculating ball bearing systems. This makes a one to one replacement very easy. drylin® W linear rails provide you with the greatest possible flexibility and variety in the design of your linear rails. Optimum load distribution is a further argument in drylin® W.

Low-profile guide systems for small installation spaces

The drylin® N low-profile guide system is a linear system for small installation spaces.
The small installation heights of 6 to 12 mm are especially space-saving.
The combination of plastic and anodised aluminium is especially lightweight in addition.

Linear rail application examples

Stage lifting device with drylin® W

In the field of stage technology, quiet and low vibration movements are of critical importance. When moving the stage, high forces are exerted on the guide and the bearing points.  The drylin® W linear guides based on steel shafts in combination with stainless steel pillow blocks that permit quiet and low vibration movement.
