Linear bearings & slides from drylin®

Unlike re-circulating ball bearing guides that roll, drylin® linear bearings & assemblies are engineered to slide. Sliding elements made of high-performance, self-lubricating plastics allow the linear bearing assembly to be maintenance-free and resistant to external influences. The special materials also allow the linear bearings to run extremely quietly. By making the switch to drylin® linear bearings, costs are also reduced by up to 40%.  Configure your own linear bearing assembly in just a few steps with our configurator tool as well.  Choose the components that fit the needs of your application, calculate service life and send directly to your shopping cart.  Use the drylin® linear guide configurator.

Tech Up, Cost Down
Upgrade your current linear bearings and slides by switching to igus®.  By switching drylin®, customers can increase their technology and reduce their costs by up to 50%.   In addition to these benefits, igus® products offer fast shipping times within 24hrsonline service-life calculators and tools for nearly all product lines, and tested reliability.
