Since 1985, we have designed maintenance-free slide bearings for shafts with plastic liners, which are available from a range of materials depending upon your application’s requirements—high temperatures, FDA-compliance, chemical resistance and other technical needs. Our patented split-design for our plastic liners allows for easy assembly onto the linear shaft while it remains still in place. The built-in slide pads also wipe away debris, making drylin® R linear shafts ideal for use in dirty environments.
Drylin® R linear slide bearings are also dimensionally equal to standard recirculating ball bearings for easy retrofitting or replacement. We offer our linear bearing selection with stainless steel housings or anodized aluminum housings—both metric and imperial sizes.
Specifically used in industries such as packaging machinery, medical and laboratory equipment, kiosks, vending and 3D printing.
