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

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.

igus® study

banner We have carried out various tests to determine our materials' coefficients of friction and wear rates. Plain bearings and liners made from the iglidur® J and J4 materials were tested on various wooden shafts and the results compared to those for metal shafts. This study gives us results for wood, a renewable raw material.
To the study

Extremely compact

Extremely compact Lubrication-free and maintenance-free drylin miniature linear guides for small installation spaces. High-quality solutions for precise movements and adjustments in the tightest of spaces in small machines and devices.

sustainability

Sustainability

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