In this single-purpose machine for the grinding of machined edges drylin® linear technology comes into use. The position needs to be set in a first step and after that the motor-driven grinder is used. The system operates in a very dusty environment – microscopic aluminium particles can settle everywhere. In addition, strong forces influence the individual parts of the edge grinder.
Products from the drylin® series have proved a viable option due to their robust and shock-resistant properties. Their simple construction make them resistant to dirt, so that they function well despite the aluminium particles. Shocks and other applied forces are absorbed by the sliding elements made of high-performance polymers. The large contact surface of the sliding elements on the linear profiles guarantee an optimal distribution of forces and hence safe and jerk-free gliding.
