drylin® T - Linear guide systems

drylin® T linear guide systems were specially developed for applications in automation and handling systems. The design objective was a rugged linear guide for application in the most diverse - and also extreme - environments. They have the same dimensions as most recirculating ball bearing guides.

Technical data

Profile rail and base body of the carriage made of aluminum. The rail is hard-anodized, the aluminum base body of the carriage is clear anodized.


Six gliding elements made of iglidur® J serve as guide bearings, which are positioned opposite to each other in pairs and make up 3 guide bearings.


Alternatively, bearing clearance is continuously adjustable


All steel parts are stainless steel


The lid is made of solid plastic or stainless steel


100 % lubricant-free

drylin® T - options

The drylin® T linear guide systems can be supplied with manual continuous clearance adjustment, as automatic, heavy-duty or low-profile versions.

drylin® T - Adjustable clearance  

drylin® T - Adjustable clearance

The drylin® T standard version is supplied preset and can be put into operation at once. The user can also manually adjust or fine-tune the clearance of the linear guide. The individual adjustment for your application, as well as the potential to respond to uneven screw surfaces through specific clearance allowance.

drylin® T - Automatic  

drylin® T - Automatic

drylin® T carriages of the automatic version have a mechanism that automatically adjusts the bearing clearance after removal of the preload key. In case a bearing clearance of more than 0.13 mm has to be adjusted during operation, the bearing clearance automatically resets itself when the carriage is completely unloaded.

drylin® T - Manual clamping  

drylin® TW-HKA manual clamp

The manual clamp has been developed for simple tasks. The creep behavior of the clamped plastic causes a slackening in clamping force over time (up to 70%). Therefore safety-related parts should not be clamped. Please approach our applications consultant if you require other options for the clamping.

drylin® T Heavy Duty  

drylin® T - Heavy Duty

This series is used for the most extreme conditions such as dirt, adhesive residues, chips, mud, etc. The plastic gliding elements made of iglidur® J are fixed in the lid and are therefore non-detachable. This system is compatible with many standard commercial recirculating ball bearing systems and is available in the following sizes: TW-01-20, TW-01-25 and TW-01-30.

drylin® T - Low-profile guide  

drylin® T - Low-profile guide

The clearance is not adjustable for the drylin® T low profile guide rails. The gliding elements are mounted with positive fit in the chromated zinc carriage. This simple and effective design enables guides that are rugged and low-priced at the same time.

drylin® T - Compact linear guide  

drylin® T - Compact linear guide

This compact linear guide is suitable for rugged use (without clearance adjustment). This system has a slim design and the same dimensions as conventional recirculating ball bearing systems. The plastic gliding elements made of iglidur® J are fixed in the lid and are therefore undetachable. Suitable for drylin® T guide rail of installation size 20.

drylin® TWBM hand clamp  

drylin® TWBM - Manual clamping with high holding force

This manual clamping is designed for a long-lasting high holding force of up to 500 N per clamping element.
