The world's first tape made from iglidur A160 offers friction and wear values that make it suitable for a wide range of applications. The tape’s maintenance-free dry-running properties make it an ideal component for packaging machinery as a sliding surface needing low friction.

Food-grade products such as iglidur A181 and iglidur A350 are used for even more specialised challenges such as high temperature applications. The injection moulded knife-edge rollers from igus allow complete avoidance of additional lubricants in conveyor technology, while also providing better wear values when compared to PET-P versions.

igus also has a presence in drive technology with its drylin product range enhanced by the linear modules drylin SLW Protect and drylin SLWT-1080.

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 enhances its maintenance-free characteristics, a feature also shared by the drylin SLWT-1080.

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 footprint.

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 maintenance time.

igus products are available in Australia from Treotham .
