The world's first tape made from iglidur A160 is suited for a wide range
of applications in the packaging industry due to its friction and wear values. The
tape’s maintenance-free dry-running properties make it an ideal component for
packaging machinery as a sliding surface where low friction is essential.
Food-grade products such as iglidur A181 and iglidur A350 are used for
even more specialised challenges such as high temperature applications. igus
offers injection moulded knife edge rollers for conveyor technology, avoiding
the use of additional lubricants, while also providing better wear values when
compared to PET-P versions.
igus also has a presence in drive technology, offering the enhanced drylin
product range comprising of the linear modules drylin SLW Protect and drylin
The durable drylin W linear rail provides an effective protection mechanism
that safeguards the lead screw and lead screw nut against impact from falling
components and debris. This capability in both products enhances their maintenance-free
The drylin E stepper motors also create new design possibilities with
the compact design of the laterally mounted motor flange allowing the motor to
be mounted adjacent to the system, therefore reducing the overall system
The new xiros ball bearings made from FDA compliant xirodur F180
material, combined with aluminium guide rollers provide wider options for
packaging system solutions.
The readychain and readycable product range seamlessly integrate into
the igus system concept. The innovative
plug and play method of ‘readychain speed’, where the connector and mounting
bracket form a compact unit, allows the complete energy chain to be connected
within seconds without the use of tools, significantly reducing assembly and
