drylin® SLW - linear modules and XY-tables

Torsionally stable aluminium dual shaft rails and many carriage versions characterise the drylin® W product range, and form a well rounded modular kit for the drylin® SLW linear modules. The modules are low profile, as well as robust. The drylin® SLW linear modules are not only ideal for manual format adjustments but also can be fitted with a motor to make electrical adjustments.

Variable carriage widths and lengths

Flat drylin® guide rails or high profile

Corrosion resistant option made of stainless steel available


Typical application areas

Format and lane adjustments
