Original Press Release:
igus DryLin Linear Bearings and Aluminum Shafting Eliminate Rust and Contamination for a Worry-Free, Low-Cost Solution
EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. - July 15, 2004 - igus® Inc., the industry-leading developer of DryLin® linear bearings and guide systems, ensures worry-free operation with a solution completely resistant to rust and contamination. DryLin R plastic linear bearings are made with igus' pioneering iglide® J polymer material which requires no lubrication or maintenance. DryLin S anodized aluminum shafting is optimized for friction and wear to work seamlessly with DryLin R bearings. Together, this complete motion control solution is low-cost, rust-free, contamination-resistant and will not corrode.
DryLin solutions are ideal for extreme dirt conditions and underwater, food and wash down applications. DryLin R linear bearings are available in a complete range of sizes and they are
dimensionally interchangeable with standard, re-circulating ball bearings. DryLin S shafting can be customized with flats, grooves, through-holes or other modifications.
DryLin R linear bearings were developed for round shafts and applications with a need for speed and low noise. They can reach speeds more than four times faster than re-circulating ball bearings, deliver unrestricted acceleration, and are well-suited for high-frequency, short-travel applications. With channels that enable the flow of dirt and dust, DryLin R linear bearings do not need to be sealed. Its simple design prevents debris from being lodged in the liner and causing irreparable damage, unlike re-circulating ball bearings.
Igus 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.
