Igus Drylin T linear guide systems have been specially developed for applications in automation and handling systems.

Welding robots play a key role within many industries – especially the automotive industry for the spot welding of body parts.

These robots use a linear slide on the top of the welding equipment so that it can have the greatest possible range of movement.

Traditional metal linear slides require regular lubricating, which can trap dirt and welding splatter that can eventually cause the machine to stop working.

Igus Drylin T linear guide systems are self-lubricating and therefore prevent dirt and welding splatter getting trapped.

A German compact car manufacturer has used the Igus Drylin T in its welding robots.

The guide lasted throughout the entire production period of the car and was still fully functional on completion.

Drylin T linear guide systems have been designed for use in diverse and extreme environments.

The profile rail and base body of the carriage are made of aluminium, the rail is hard anodised and the aluminium base body of the carriage is clear anodised.

There are six gliding elements made of Iglidur J that serve as guide bearings; these are opposed in pairs and make up three guide bearings.

Each of these three guide bearings is continuously adjustable, all steel parts are stainless steel and the end caps are made of solid plastic.

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
