The DryLin® W linear guide system is part of a suite of linear bearings and slides with plastic glide elements. The system is available in multiple rail configurations and styles to provide more design options and is said to be a low-cost, compact, easy-to-install solution. The system has a low overall height of 14 mm and is available as a combination of two supported round shafts in one profile, in a split rail configuration or with square rails. The single profile round-rail option is said to lower the cost of an application and eliminate time-consuming shaft alignment and assembly. The square rails are said to ensure that loads are evenly distributed and decrease the amount of friction encountered by the rail. In applications where the rail does not travel across a level plane, the plastic liner can be adapted to float and realign based on differentiating heights. The guide system is said to be well suited for automation, packaging, machine tool, printing, and medical applications. igus Inc.
