6 Advantages of Linear Bearings

May 6, 2019
What it really means to go from a rolling to a sliding system.

Linear bearing systems create sliding technology for maximum design potential. drylin linear solutions offer a powerful core, as their plastic bearing liners are optimized to make the systems maintenance-free. Along with the innovative sliding properties of the liners are a wide range of rails, bearings, and customizable combinations that allow engineers the ability to combine the right components and bring design ideas to life.

The most widely-used alternative to drylin is recirculating ball bearings. Though ball bearings are an established choice for generating linear motion, making the switch from a rolling ball bearing to a sliding plastic linear bearing can drastically reduce failure, downtime, and costs. igus kept ease of replacement in mind when creating drylin, as many of the systems are dimensionally interchangeable with recirculating metal bearings.
