drylin® drive technology provides lubrication-free linear axes that are driven by a trapezoidal thread, a high helix thread, or a toothed belt. From lightweight solid plastic units to solid stainless steel solutions, igus offers users the right solutions for their individual application. In all systems, the stroke length is freely selectable and the drive implemented via either hand wheel or motor. motion plastics specialist igus uses drive systems to optimise linear automation at the highest level. The drive systems, consisting of maintenance-free components, are offered at reasonable prices. They feature precision, high reliability, and a long service life. Are you looking for a high-speed linear drive system, a Z axis for gantry designs, or generally for an efficient, lubrication-free alternative to your drive system? We are happy to help you find what you're looking for with a wide range of special drive solutions. drylin® drive technology is also dirt-resistant, lightweight, quiet, and suitable for almost all applications and industries from all over the world.
The drive technology online configurator gives you the right drive technology system after you enter your requirements. You also have the option of requesting or ordering motors and other accessories, such as the motor control system.
The SHT Designer enables you to configure a custom SHT lead screw linear system in just a few steps. You can also configure a custom drive pin (optional). A 3D model of the linear system is created automatically.
Research and development in the field of sustainability requires innovative, cost-effective, cleanroom-compatible solutions. In combination with the motor and control system, our lubrication-free lead screw axes ensure a cost-effective turnkey solution.
The use of cement creates a high level of dust load in the 3D concrete printer, which the products have to withstand. Furthermore, the longest possible service life and fast maintenance are required. Our bearing solutions and lubrication-free toothed belt axes ensure a long service life despite dirt load.
Unlike traditional recirculating ball bearing systems, drylin® linear plain bearings operate on sliding elements. This application overview shows you a wide spectrum of applications for maintenance-free linear guide systems from the drylin® product range.
drylin® drive technology moves with plastic bearings made of high-performance polymers. This means that you don't need a single drop of lubrication. Eliminating lubrication means no maintenance for you. It also greatly reduces maintenance costs.
drylin® drive technology is based on the plain bearing principle instead of recirculating ball bearing systems. This results in much less noise and vibration. The application generates as little as a quarter the noise.
drylin drive technology distinguishes itself from its metallic counterparts not only with its technical advantages, such as freedom from lubrication and maintenance, but also costs up to 30% less. The drylin® econ series is especially cost-effective.
Our drive technology does not require a single drop of lubricating oil. This benefits not only our users, but also the environment. Our tribologically optimised materials also generate less abrasion, which means less energy is needed.
igus drive technology allows testing welds for quality. In igus drive technology, a drylin SHT linear unit is used here as standard, which enables the adjustment of a bending die. As a result, bending specimens with a maximum force of up to 5,000N are conceivable. "Munsch Kunststoff-Schweißtechnik GmbH" relies on a complete solution with electric drive in the form of a gear motor.
