LINEAR GUIDES ARE MAINTENANCE AND LUBRICATION FREE

Treotham offers a range of linear guides that glide rather than roll. Unlike the recirculating ball bearing systems, drylin linear guides run on sliding elements made of high-performance polymers with particularly low wear rates and coefficients of friction.

The polymers enable lubrication-free and maintenance-free dry operation, and that saving in maintenance time translates to reductions in costs incurred by process stoppages.

The robust drylin linear guides can be used for almost any application and in a wide variety of environments, including extreme ones. Unlike recirculating ball bearings, there is no limit to the travel of drylin linear guides, nor is there a minimum stroke length.

The guides are not sensitive to influences such as dirt, water, chemicals, heat and impacts. In addition, they are lightweight and have a very low noise because of the materials used and the special design.

Treotham offers customised support for special applications, including hygienic environments and robotics, and the company also offers a free drylin linear guides sample box.
