Video of the Week – How drylin handling systems help make light work of repetitive tasks

drylin handling systems are based on the bearing principle of sliding instead of rolling. Unlike the recirculating ball systems, drylin systems run on lubrication-free iglidur polymers.

One of the key benefits of the drylin handling system is its dry operation, thereby making it maintenance-free and insensitive to influences such as dirt, water, chemicals, heat or impacts. In addition, they operate much more quietly compared to their metal counterparts.

With these properties, drylin handling systems can be used in a wide variety of environments, including extreme ones. The modular system allows for high flexibility with different rail guides and pillow blocks. It can also be used irrespective of the length of the travel and does not have any set conditions for a minimum stroke length.
