motion plastics for
film and camera equipment

Lubrication-free for successful filming

Whether for "do-it-yourself" applications or professional camera rigs – the versatile drylin linear guide system offers extensive freedom when it comes to their design. Specifically in the construction of camera carriages, also referred to as sliders or dollies, technicians, product designers or DIY enthusiasts can make their wishes come true and combine individual components. The total absence of lubrication and the very low noise level due to the use of tribo-optimised polymers and aluminium are only two of many arguments that speak in favour of igus. In addition, energy chains and chainflex cables ensure increased dependability even where high speeds and tight bend radii are involved.

Why are drylin linear guides ideal for film and camera technology?

  • Wear-resistant and smooth movement
  • Adjustable braking level thanks to turn-to-fit function
  • Lubrication-free
  • Easy and fast assembly
  • Suitable for even the most confined of installation spaces
  • Silent thanks to the absence of balls
  • No deflection thanks to the rigid aluminium profile
