igus® linear guide systems are based on the "sliding instead of rolling" principle

Our lubrication-free linear systems travel in dry operation, which makes them maintenance-free and resistant to external influences. In addition, they run especially quietly thanks to the materials used and the special design involved. You can easily calculate the service life online in just a few steps.

Thanks to the personal choice of high-quality single parts, every linear system can be adapted to individual needs. Switching to a sliding system can reduce running operating costs and greatly improve technology, resulting in smooth operation and long service life.

Why choose drylin® linear systems?


drylin® linear guides can cope with high temperatures, strong vibrations and more

drylin® linear bearings are dirt-resistant

Resistant to dirt
drylin® linear guides can be deployed even in applications involving sand, chips, swarf and dust

drylin® linear bearings are corrosion-free

Corrosion-free and media-resistant for deployment under water

drylin® linear bearings are quiet

Around 4 times quieter than equivalent linear bearings made of metal

drylin® linear bearings are light

Up to 75% lighter thanks to high-performance polymers

drylin® linear bearings are hygienic

All systems operate without external lubrication and are thus extremely clean

Longer product life cycle


drylin® linear technology uses  not a single drop of lubricating oil . In addition, our tribologically optimised materials produce less microabrasion than commercially available plastics.  Longer service life also has a positive net effect on the environment.

No lubricants necessary
