Four cases a minute, 24 hours a day
One packaging equipment company uses maintenance-free DryLin® W linear guides in a custom packaging machine that boxes up four cases of plastic bottles per minute, 24 hours a day. The linear guides replace standard slotted brackets and act as a vertical guide for the machine’s grabbing device.
The company also uses DryLin® W linear guides on a pneumatic arm in a pick-and-place mechanism used to package toner cartridges. They were integrated due to their resistance to the acidic toner and low maintenance requirements.
Cost savings include both the initial purchasing cost and reduced maintenance costs: No lubrication is required for the linear systems.
