The alternative linear rail guide – drylin® T

Variety and simple 1:1 replacement

Glide instead of roll – the drylin® T linear rail guide is based on that principle. In the process, the drylin® T rail guide makes the exchange from a recirculating ball bearing system to a gliding system as easy as possible. Regarding connector and hole dimensions, the drylin® linear rails and linear carriages are identical to conventional recirculating ball bearing systems. The centrepiece of the guide carriage consists of lubrication-free and extremely long-life sliding elements made of igus® high-performance polymers. Quick and easy to handle and maintenance-free in use. The rail guides made of hard-anodised aluminium are tough and corrosion-resistant.

drylin® T in a grinding machine

Adjustments in linear movements in cupboards, doors and more

The pressing roller in a grinding machine and the imbalance of the grinding tools are guided over a drylin® T rail in this machine from SMB MASCHINENBAU GmbH. The vibration-dampening properties of the plastic bearings provide support for the elaborate grinding process.

drylin® T in an enveloping machine

4 double strokes per second – with little clearance and maintenance-free

drylin® T rail guides are used in this enveloping machine to guide an envelope suction opener that is mounted on one side. In this application, a variable stroke of 4 to 10 mm and a cycle output of 4 double strokes per second. The guidance must be clearance- and maintenance-free and may not require lubrication.

drylin® T rail with measuring system for tools

Measuring system saves a lot of time and money

Tool changing time is reduced considerably by the measuring system from the drylin®  T product range. The drilling and cutting tools in CNC processing machines are measured prior to processing and the values are entered in the computer. This means that every tool needs to be measured only once. The gauge is guided on a drylin® T rail.
