igus Offers DryLin N Low-profile Linear Guides for High-speed Applications
EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. June 30, 2005 DryLin® N low-profile linear guide systems from igus® Inc. are designed for high-speed applications. DryLin N is extremely flat with a small mounting height and width. Plastic gliding elements run in an anodized aluminum rail, which enables oil-free, maintenance-free operation. Because it is entirely self-lubricating, DryLin N is ideal for environments that prohibit the use of lubricated linear systems. DryLin N is also ideally suited to short-travel applications. Even at speeds up to 32 feet per second, it still runs with no lubrication and will not score the rail. DryLin N can be used in medical devices, test instruments, packaging machinery, custom assembly machinery and material-handling devices. It is available in four widths. Like all DryLin linear guide systems, DryLin N is lubrication- and maintenance-free. It is highly resistant to dirt, dust and contaminants. Its also corrosion-resistant and lightweight. DryLin N incurs low wear and also has a low coefficient of friction.About igusIgus Inc., founded in 1985 and based in East Providence, R.I., develops and manufactures industry-leading plastic cable carriers, continuous-flex cables, plastic bearings and linear guide systems.
