drylin® linear bearings operate on glide pads unlike the common recirculating ball bearing systems. Tests conducted over the years have shown that iglidur® J, J 200 and X are the ideal materials for most linear applications due to their positive properties in wear and friction. Hence the drylin® linear plain bearings are equipped with these materials.
drylin® linear bearing systems are designed for the dry operation. Your applications are thereby protected against soiling by grease or oil. In contrast to recirculating ball bearings, the drylin® bearings do not depend on the travel length and hence do not pose any conditions on the minimum stroke length.
