Compared to metal, plastic is a very young material. Metals have been used by human beings for over 8,000 years. Experience in metalworking has been passed on from generation to generation. When it comes to moving components, metal is considered to be the safe choice and lubrication and greasing of the components is accepted
But what if materials for moving components ...
... do not require lubrication and greasing?
... are up to 70% lighter?
... work without problems in dirt, chemicals, water?
... do not rust and squeak?
... have a predictable life span and are safe to use?
"I love solving problems. I am really pleased if one of our customers can be made happy as a result. Of course, this is only successful if I work very closely with the customer. I need to completely understand where the difficulty lies in order to find an individual solution. Occasionally, such solutions for individuals result in innovations that we add to our catalogue product range. Our customers therefore rely on our team as a driving force in the area of research and development. "
Stefan Niermann, Head of drylin Linear Technology
Our products have been developed for moving applications and high levels of stress. These include energy supply systems, cables, bearing technology, linear technology, bar stock, 3D printing filaments, and low cost robotics:
We continually develop and improve our innovative online tools . The tools make use of research results from the test laboratory and application-related knowledge. This enables our customers to plan their projects progressively, transparently and efficiently.
