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 coefficients of friction and low wear results for profile rails. The robust 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. 
  • Fast and easy installation
  • Maintenance-free
  • Dirt-resistant
  • Light and robust
  • Quiet operation

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. Save up to 60% weight.

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

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)

drylin® linear technology does not use a single drop of lubricating oil. In addition, our tribologically optimised materials produce less micro-abrasion than commercially available plastics. Longer service life also has a positive net effect on the environment.
