Cost-effective, flexible linear guide rail requires no maintenance

Cost-effective, flexible linear guide rail requires no maintenance Design flexibility is a fundamental factor for applications in the agricultural, vehicle manufacturing, medical, printing and packaging industry sectors, which is why the cost-effective, fully-assembled linear slide rail and carriage drylin W from igus UK is a popular choice.

drylin W presents many more advantages over conventional linear rails because it offers low wear, a low coefficient of friction and quiet, maintenance-free operation, even in the most demanding of environments. For example, when fitting sheet metal fabrications strain is a common problem; this can be totally eliminated with drylin W. Its design compensates for angular rotation errors around the X-axis and, when fitted with floating bearings, can compensate for misalignments and parallelism errors between rails thus preventing jamming. On conventional linear rails, this can only be achieved through parallel alignment, which is a manual task that can be quite time-consuming.

In essence, drylin W is a modular linear guide system that has both double and single rail options. Offering total flexibility, when designing into small installation spaces, drylin W is cost-effective, requires virtually no maintenance and, in addition to this, can be fitted with a broad range of components that includes 12 types of profile rails, 30 carriages and a range of system enhancing accessories.
