Igus has developed a range of linear bearing liners that, when used in conjunction with Drylin precision aluminium shafts, can reportedly increase the productivity of pick-and-place machinery in the materials handling sector.

The Drylin R liners eliminate issues relating to wear, environmental contamination and the build-up of dirt and debris as they are produced from a special tribo-plastic material with a low co-efficient of friction and high wear resistance.

Drylin R bearing liners and shafts are available in a variety of sizes and can be used in conjunction with other products in Igus’s Drylin range.

Key benefits

  • The liners do not require any grease and so do not attract debris.
  • They offer excellent damping qualities and are corrosion free.
  • They do not require any maintenance.
  • The liners are said to be extremely lightweight.

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.
