drylin® is a product range of lubrication-free linear plain bearings based on the principle of sliding instead of rolling. The special dry-tech® high-performance plastics of the bearing bushings ensure that machine elements can be moved along a shaft or profile guide silently and with little friction. The drylin linear systems run dry and are maintenance-free. Linear guide systems with rail or round shafts are available with their main benefits in addition to zero maintenance and lubrication are strength and resistance to external influences such as dirt, moisture, chemicals, heat and impact.  With these properties, drylin® linear guides can be used in a wide variety of environments, including extreme ones.
