With the drylin® linear guides expert, you can configure a drylin® R linear guide to suit your application and, at the same time, calculate the service life of the linear shaft system.
The carbon linear shaft is a lot lighter than linear shafts made of aluminium or stainless steel. The carbon shaft is used wherever weight needs to be reduced in design.
The X-ray transparency is another advantage of the carbon fibre. So the material is often used in medical or measurement technology.
igus® offers the drylin® R shaft end blocks in different versions and for shaft diameters of 6mm to 60mm, depending on the design.
The drylin® R floating bearings offer great advantages in applications with parallel shafts. With their geometry, they are able to compensate for alignment and parallelism errors and should be used on the shaft located furthest from the drive mechanism.
