Igus UK is offering interchangeable linear bearing liners designed to ensure grease-free operation on all available shaft materials from the Drylin range, including hard anodised aluminium and soft stainless steel.

The Drylin bearing liners are produced in a variety of Iglidur high-performance plastics and are said to offer an easy-fit alternative to ball linings.

The lubrication-free liners are designed to simply press or clip into the linear carriage.

Key benefits

  • The Drylin liners are based on wear-resistant plastics specially developed for linear technology.
  • The liners are said to enable users to reduce downtime and improve their processes significantly.
  • Their inherent dry-running properties ensure grease-free operation on all available shaft materials from the Drylin range.
  • Coupled with a grooved design, the liners push away any residue, thus preventing the build-up of paste, dirt and debris.
  • Any contaminant is passed through the bearing channels, minimising pressure build-up in the front of the bearing.

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.
