igus has developed a hygenic version of its drylin W linear carriage constructed from FDA-compliant materials, including iglide A160 polymer and high-alloy 316 stainless steel. The guide’s gap-free design features a self-draining carriage and rail, hygienic screws and large grooves to prevent water from accumulating.
