Build it or Buy it: The Advantages of a Pre-engineered Sub-assembly Product Over a Component System


When constructing a linear guide system, the first choice is selecting what type of product to use: a pre-engineered sub-assembly (such as the Uni-Guide) or a component system (such as Profile Rail Technology [PRT]). Both have clear advantages and disadvantages; a component system allows the designer to tailor-fit the system to the application; however a pre-engineered sub-assembly product can save thousands on pre-installation costs: time to design, selection, research and planning.

Reduce friction in machine-guard doors


The word ‘hybrid’ is used in engineering to describe a system where two technologies are combined together. igus® has now achieved this with a completely new type of cost-effective hybrid linear bearing that both rolls and slides.

The new hybrid bearing, DryLin® WJRM, was developed with the goal of reducing driving force, especially in applications involving the manual adjustment of machine-guard doors, partitions and adjustable locks, or for light handling tasks. For this purpose, igus took the advantages unique to sliding and rolling movements and combined them.

Smooth guidance - Linear guidance in the food industry


A cutting machine’s in-feed uses pillow blocks from the igus® DryLin® linear range on its guidance mechanism used to center blocks of cheese weighing up to 187 pounds.

The arms of this centralizing unit are mounted on the pillow blocks and then guided smoothly up from beneath a conveyor. The position of the guides means they are subjected to severe washdowns, are potential bacteria traps and inaccessible for maintenance.

New Anti-Backlash Leadscrew System


igus® has unveiled a new addition to its line of DryLin® SLW leadscrew tables. DryLin SLW Pre-Loaded uses anti-backlash nuts to reduce axial clearance and is also fitted with DryLin W ‘turn-to-fit’ linear bearings, which offer adjustable radial clearance.

DryLin SLW Pre-Loaded is available off-the-shelf and is less expensive when compared to ball bearing assemblies. Costs associated with research, design, drawing, purchasing, QC, and assembly are virtually eliminated.
