How drylin Q sliding plates offer excellent tolerance adjustment

Written by: igus | Published:

In this week’s video we find out how the tolerance of fixture, positioning and measuring systems is compensated by a clever adjustment mechanism. Called drylin Q, the manually adjustable sliding plates are used for lifting column applications as varied as square tube-in-tube adjustment mechanisms, U profiles and low profiles. Made of the high-performance iglidur J plastic, the sliding plates are lubrication-free and, more importantly, maintenance-free.

The drylin Q tolerance compensation system is easy to install and adjusts via the eight slot nuts. Once fitted and finely tuned, the lifting column will operate quietly and rattle-free – a cost-effective, fit-and-forget solution. What is more, because the sliding plates are made from engineering plastic, they are corrosion resistant.
