drylin® - Linear plain bearings move on gliding elements unlike the common recirculating ball bearing systems. These glide elements made of high performance polymers can in principle be produced from all iglidur® materials. For this reason, the advantages of the various iglidur® bearing materials are available for the drylin® linear technology. However the iglidur® J is best suited for most linear applications due to its low-wear and low-friction properties. Hence the drylin® linear bearings are equipped with this material. This application overview shows you highly varying application areas for maintenance-free linear guide systems made with the drylin® range.
