The components of the drylin® N low-profile guide system

The small drylin® N low-profile guide system consists of a rail and a guide carriage. The sliding elements are manufactured from a high-performance plastic. The low-profile linear guide was developed especially for applications with very little installation space. The low-profile linear guides move completely without any lubricant and guarantee compliance with the highest hygiene standards.

drylin® N in the 3D printer

Lightweight, flat and lubrication-free

The LOV3 delta 3D printer from PEL3O has been designed for both commercial and private use. The goal here was to address the creative mind.  The 3D printer from PEL3O operates quickly and reliably with drylin® N, without the need for maintenance.

drylin® N for 3D camera

Simple and precise

Two conventional cameras are set up at an angle on a low-profile guide system to create a three-dimensional image. This trick renders an expensive 3D camera unnecessary. For this to work properly, the slight difference in the alignment of the cameras must remain identical at all times. This is made possible by a drylin® N low-profile guide system.  

drylin® N on packaging machine for bottles

No lubrication means no soiling – completely hygienic!

In this packaging machine, a gripper lifts and packages bottles. The fingers of the gripper are moved by means of a low-profile guide system. No soiling by lubricants such as oils or greases may occur at this critical point in the machine. For this reason, only one solution came into question – drylin® N.  

drylin® N in testing and sorting plant

Highest demands on hygiene in food technology

By means of a vacuum gripper test parts are removed, measured and taken to various magazines. The removal unit is moved along the X-Y axis using the space-saving and cost-saving drylin® N low-profile guide system. The robust TK-04 guide system takes on vertical guidance.
