Reducing down-time in pick-and-place machinery
Linear bearing expert igus produces a linear bearing liner, that when used in conjunction with drylin precision aluminium shafts, can increase productivity in pick-and-place machinery in the materials handling sector.
The most common bearing issues that engineers can face in this sector are failures due to wear, environmental contamination and the build-up of dirt and debris, which can lead to costly maintenance downtime. The drylin R liners eliminate all of these problems because they are produced from a special tribo-plastic material which has a low coefficient of friction and very high wear resistance. Also, these parts do not require any grease and as a result, do not attract debris.
The plastic bearing liners from igus have further advantages compared to traditional steel linear bearings; they have excellent dampening qualities, are corrosion free, and they do not require any maintenance. When used together with drylin R precision aluminium shafts, the components are extremely lightweight, giving an additional benefit in dynamic applications.
As with most standard igus parts, drylin R bearing liners and shafts are available in a variety of sizes and can be used in conjunction with other products in the drylin range.
