tech talk tech talk Which drylin ® liner material is ideal for my application? We know it can get confusing and overwhelming when trying to choose the right liner material for your drylin® W or R system since there are so many options available. That's why we wanted to provide you with this at-a-glance overview to make the process a little easier. FYI: Another useful tool is our online configurator where you can mock up your application and compare the lifetimes of the different materials. All our liners can be purchased separately, or they can be integrated into our adaptors as well as our standard and flanged pillow blocks, making them dimensionally interchangeable with linear ball bearing guides. Our liners are specially designed with fluted ID's (inner diameters), which help mitigate thermal expansion and dial in a more precise fit than a typical press-fit plain bearing. These flutes on the ID also act as "dirt channels" in applications contaminated with debris. Now, let's get into the overview of our liner materials so you can start designing your appli- cation sooner than later. Learn more at www.igus.com/info/linear-liner
