Igus has specified its Drylin rail-guidance system for Global Laser’s laser-alignment system.

At the initial project consultation with Global Laser, Igus proposed using Drylin linear bearings, guides, slides and slide tables.

Drylin systems are engineered to run dry, which means that they self-lubricate and are dirt-repellent and rugged.

Without the need for lubricants or maintenance, grease lines are eliminated from the design entirely.

The resulting laser-alignment guide-rail design integrates the Drylin W with clamp, Drylin SLW leadscrew system and Drylin ZLW belt-drive system.

The Iglidur J material used for the linear guide is said to ensure excellent coefficients of friction for smooth and precise movements over design lifetime.

Since dirt, dust and other abrasives cannot be drawn into the bearing surface, Drylin is suitable for aggressive environments, as well as for high-moisture, wash-down and underwater applications.

Drylin can also be employed in other hostile environments, such as those found in the food-processing and paper-converting industries.

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.
