The New DryLin® N Preloaded Linear Carriage - The Smallest Miniature Guide System
EAST PROVIDENCE, RI (January, 29, 2003) - igus® inc. announces it's smallest miniature guide system, the N17 Series. The N17 Series is now available in 2 styles; standard and the NEW preloaded design.
The Nk-02-17 preloaded linear carriage produces a precision fit and less noise through its new design. The carriage design limits the amount of lateral clearance while maintaining consistent performance.
The carriage is made from iglide® J material, with brass fittings for ease of assembly. The preloaded N17 carriage is low cost, maintenance-free, wear resistant, lightweight, and able to operate at high speeds and accelerations. All of this performance is available from a product no larger than a matchstick.
The performance of the N17 is also predictable. Our DryLin® Expert System allows the engineer to calculate the overall performance of our product. This is achieved through years of extensive testing, not mathematical theory.
Our DryLin® N Miniature Guide Systems are also available in 27, 40, and 80 mm sizes. For more information, contact igus® inc. PO Box 14349 East Providence, RI 02914.
