he tough linear carriages are available in four different installation sizes

For performance packaging, mechanical engineering and handling applications, igus introduces the drylin T series with extremely wear-resistant sliding elements made of high-performance plastics.

The tough linear carriages are available in four different installation sizes. Equipped with captive sliding elements made of iglidur J200, the system offers up to 50% longer service life compared to the standard igus material used for linear guides.



The bearing clearance of the carriages can be adjusted individually to a precision of 20μm.

As with all drylin T series, the new performance series has the same mounting dimensions as recirculating ball-bearing guides.

An online fact check page can be found on the igus website that explains whether the drylin T solution will work for a given application.

A comparison list of ball guides to drylin T guides with identical mounting dimensions is also provided.
