Profile rails for permanent use

drylin® W profile rails enable extremely high flexibility in design and a simple assembly by the application of individual or double rails. Hard-anodised aluminium is used as a rail material and provides the best friction and wear results for profile rails. The high-profile carbon fibre is especially light. The multiple options enable the use of drylin® W profile rails in many applications – even under extreme conditions.  

  • Quick and easy assembly
  • Maintenance-free solution
  • Dirt-resistant
  • Lightweight and robust
  • Quiet operation

More about drylin® W profile rails

Fast assembly of the drylin® W linear guide

Save assembly costs

Simple and fast assembly thanks to double rails instead of two single rails mounted in parallel

High flexibility with single rails for linear technology

More flexibility

in design thanks to flexible distances with parallel single rails

Lightweight linear guide drylin® W

Weight-optimised profile rails

With extremely light and strong carbon rail material. Reduce weight by up to 60%.

Corrosion-resistant linear profile rails

Profile rails made of stainless steel

Machine parts made of stainless steel are designed to survive in the worst environments. Heat, pressure, seawater, liquid and gaseous media like detergents and other chemicals. Linear systems made of stainless steel 1,4571 and 1,4301 are especially robust and are used in environments with particularly extreme conditions – for instance in the sectors:

  • Food and bottling industry
  • Meat processing
  • Harbour and crane facilities
  • Yacht building
  • Chemical industry
  • Electroplating industry
  • Medical and rehabilitation technologies
  • Packaging industry

Curved, convex or concave linear rails

Curved profile rails

Whether in camera or stage technology or for more ergonomics at the workplace. With curved profile rails, igus® offers even more possibilities from the broad drylin® W product range for your applications. Even the curved profile rails move completely without lubrication. Carriages and linear housings are offered that are suitable to the curved or concave/convex linear rails.

  • Variable profile directions (convex, concave, curved)
  • Suitable linear carriages
  • Bending option depending on the radius, rail length, bearing/carriage and mounting
  • Customised project service

The particularly light linear profile rail

The carbon profile rails is especially light and strong

The carbon profile rail WSPC is 70% lighter than liner rails made of aluminium or stainless steel. Especially in aircraft construction or the automotive industry the drylin® W carbon rail with square profile is used. The solid plastic carriage WWPL-06-30-06 made of an iglidur® material was developed specifically for the carbon rail and has best coefficient of friction and wear.  
The X-ray transparency is another advantage of the carbon fibre. So the material is often used in medical or measurement technology.

  • Extremely lightweight
  • X-ray transparent
  • High strength and resistant
  • Non-metallic
  • Non-magnetic
  • Available with drive (lead screw/toothed belt)
