Linear Motion

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.
