igus drylin W Exchange allows for liner swap without dismantling system.0
igus has introduced its drylin W Exchange bearing for its drylin W linear system, which allows the liner to be replaced directly on the rail without dismantling the system. Users can push the old liner out of the housing, clip the new one on to the shaft and push it into the housing for a flush fit.
The replacement liner, made iglidur J200 tribopolymer material, is clipped on to the rail and inserted into the slide using a free-of-charge assembly tool. The igus Exchange bearing housing can be retrofitted to all existing drylin W systems of size 10 with a shaft, including guides, linear axes and linear robots.
