drylin® linear systems

Based on the "sliding instead of rolling" principle

Our lubrication-free linear systems travel in dry operation, which makes them maintenance-free and resistant to external influences. In addition, they run especially quietly thanks to the materials used and the special design involved. You can easily calculate the service life online in just a few steps.
Thanks to the personal choice of high-quality single parts, every linear system can be adapted to individual needs. Switching to a sliding system can reduce running operating costs and greatly improve technology, resulting in smooth operation and long service life.
