Slide instead of roll – the drylin® T linear rail guide is based on that principle. In the process, the drylin® T rail guide makes the exchange from a recirculating ball bearing system to a sliding system as easy as possible. Connector and hole dimensions of drylin® linear rails and linear carriages are identical to those of conventional recirculating ball bearing systems.
The centrepiece of the guide carriage consists of lubrication-free and extremely long-life sliding elements made of igus® high-performance polymers. Quick and easy to handle and maintenance-free in use. The rail guides made of hard anodised aluminium are tough and corrosion-resistant.

Connector and hole dimensions identical to conventional recirculating ball bearing systems
Robust design makes fill weights of up to 14,000 N possible
The fact that no lubrication is necessary means less maintenance and maintenance costs for you.
We manufacture and deliver from batch size 1
Rail guide deliverable in desired lengths of up to 4,000 mm
The dimensions of the miniature guide from the drylin® T product range are identical to most commercially available miniature recirculating ball bearing systems. The compact design makes the system of miniature guides especially suitable for small installation spaces. The simple and effective rail guide is tough and cost-effective.
With the TWE-04, igus® provides a guide carriage with adjustable bearing clearance for miniature guides.
You can use the drylin® linear guides expert to quickly and easily configure an individual linear guide for your application in just five steps.
The drylin® T rail guides are identical in terms of design and dimensions with a large number of recirculating ball bearing systems. This makes one to one replacement very easy. The robust rail guide additionally guarantees a long service life of up to 50,000 km.
The drylin® TK--01-15 linear guide is not only dirt resistant. It is also extremely robust and guarantees a long service life even under extreme environmental conditions.
Rapid and flexible format adjustment, absolutely lubrication free and competitively priced – drylin® T linear guide system is the solution for such exacting standards. One further benefit is that the guide carriage is also available with a manual clamp.
The pressing roller in a grinding machine and the imbalance of the grinding tools are guided over a drylin® T rail in this machine from SMB MASCHINENBAU GmbH. The vibration-dampening properties of the plastic bearings provide support for the elaborate grinding process.
drylin® T rail guides are used in this enveloping machine to guide an envelope suction opener that is mounted on one side. In this application, a variable stroke of 4 to 10 mm and a cycle output of 4 double strokes per second. The guidance must be clearance- and maintenance-free and may not require lubrication.
Tool changing time is reduced considerably by the measuring system from the drylin® T product range. The drilling and cutting tools in CNC processing machines are measured prior to processing and the values are entered in the computer. This means that every tool needs to be measured only once. The gauge is guided on a drylin® T rail.
