Maintenance free, quiet, clean and hygienic

MRI and CT scanners, hospital, and other medical furniture as well as physiotherapy and laboratory equipment are all becoming increasingly complex and compact. Hygiene and cleanliness are top priorities for these high performance applications and medical equipment manufacturers are looking to igus for sophisticated positioning systems.

A good example for these medical applications is the drylin® SLN-27 miniature linear system. It is self-lubricating and maintenance free, using iglidur® plain bearings in the leadscrew support and carriage. Their innovative design ensures that these positioning systems are resistant to dirt, dust and humidity, whilst being lightweight and quiet running. In addition, suitability within corrosive and high impact areas make the drylin® SLN-27 miniature a versatile option for the medical industry

Like all other igus products, drylin SLN-27 linear systems are tested extensively to ensure high reliability and performance, and are readily available in a wide range of options
