The hybrid carriage from igus on the drylin w rail profile, made from hard anodised aluminium, utilises the advantages of sliding and rolling, since they are lubrication-free and can simultaneously move larger loads without excessive driving forces. This space-saving technology with only one guide rail is, for example, suitable for the adjustment of sliding doors or enclosures and allows for maximum freedom at the design process. They enable an easy manual adjustment with very quiet running. At the same time, the overall structure remains inconspicuous.
Like all plain bearing products from igus, the drylin W hybrid carriage does not require lubricating. This makes them, on the one hand, suitable for applications in the food and packaging sector. On the other hand, they can also easily be used in adverse environments, such as in machine tools. No dirt or dust particles can accumulate on the bearings.
