Linear bearing liner reduces downtime in pick-and-place machinery

Igus (UK) : 19 November, 2012  (New Product)
Linear bearing specialist Igus has produced a linear bearing liner that, when used in conjunction with Drylin precision aluminium shafts, can increase productivity in pick-and-place machinery in the materials handling sector.

The most common bearing issues that engineers can face in this sector are failures due to wear, environmental contamination and the build-up of dirt and debris, which can lead to costly maintenance downtime. The Drylin R liners eliminate all of these problems because they are produced from a special tribo-plastic material which has a low coefficient of friction and very high wear resistance. Also, these parts do not require any grease and as a result, do not attract debris.
 
Igus Drylin R precision aluminium shaftThe plastic bearing liners from Igus have further advantages compared to traditional steel linear bearings; they have excellent dampening qualities, are corrosion free, and they do not require any maintenance. When used together with Drylin R precision aluminium shafts, the components are extremely lightweight, giving an additional benefit in dynamic applications.
 
As with most standard igus parts, Drylin R bearing liners and shafts are available in a variety of sizes and can be used in conjunction with other products in the Drylin range.
