New Videos Explain Features and Benefits of Linear Guides

POSTED 04/12/2010

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. – igus® has posted two new videos online highlighting the latest additions to its range of DryLin® W linear guide systems. The videos explain the features and benefits of the new products and demonstrate how they are assembled and how they operate.

The most recently added video demonstrates how igus’ DryLin WJRM hybrid linear bearing combines both rolling and sliding movements in order to reduce the driving force of a machine-guard door. The viewer is able to see exactly how a sliding-sleeve bearing and a polymer roller work together to give DryLin WJRM its unique characteristics.

The second video is about igus’ DryLin W adjustable linear bearings. It demonstrates how to manually adjust the clearance of the linear guide with a new ‘turn-to-fit’ hand clamp.
