Igus Drylin Bearings

Treotham Automation have a range of Drylin linear bearings that use high performance polymers (motion plastics) and are based on the principle of ‘gliding instead of rolling’, operating on glide pads. Dust is prevented from clinging to surfaces as they are designed for dry running. This protects them from exposure to grease and oil, making them maintenance-free and resistant to external influences. 

Drylin bearings are also almost inaudible during operations and have no minimum stroke length restrictions.Engineered compounds are used for igus Drylin bearings so they can be adapted for a diverse range of applications. Drylin linear bearings also have a predictable service life (which is beneficial for planning security) and up to 40% of custom system configuration costs can be saved in comparison to recirculating ball bearing systems. The process is completed online and only takes only a few steps.
