Change the bearing on the rail with new drylin W Exchange

It is extremely important to use liners made of high performance polymers to ensure that igus linear guides slide silently and precisely. In order to make changing them even easier in extreme situations, igus has now developed a new replacement bearing.

The principle of the drylin W Exchange bearing is very simple: unlock bearing, push liner out and replace it. With the help of a free mounting tool, the liners can be replaced directly on the linear rail in just a few seconds, saving you time and money.
Previously, if replacement of the lubrication-free bearing liners in a linear guide rail was due, for example in the case of extremely abrasive sand or glass dust, the entire linear carriage had to be pushed off the rail. For linear axes or multiple-axis linear robots with a toothed-belt drive, this meant a lot of assembly work and also machine downtime. igus has therefore developed a durable replacement bearing for its drylin W linear guides. The bearing enables easy replacement directly on the linear rail.

Save time and space with intelligent connector modules
With module connect, igus presents the concept of a novel plug-in connector for the connection of electrical cables, fibre-optic cables and pneumatics. Thanks to the modular system, an individual plug-in/separation point can be easily configured as a module from several plug housings. It can be mounted behind the e-chain, between e-chains or directly on the switch cabinet and is used wherever a large number of cables are plugged into the smallest possible space. We also offer ready harnessed complete systems under the name readychain.
