Go to smart plain bearings

A defective plain bearing can ruin the day, not only for farmers but for any machine operator.  
Smart plain bearings are great for especially sensitive or hard-to-reach spots on a machine, since they allow the bearing's condition to be assessed at any time.

smart linear technology

The smart drylin® W carriage

In addition to condition monitoring, with the help of the drylin W LED carriage it is also possible to fit a drylin W carriage for predictive maintenance. 
This not only indicates that the liners have become worn but also the best time to carry out a replacement. Therefore you always use the products with the maximum service life as you never replace them too early or too late.
