Conveying goods precisely and quickly with igus knife edge rollers

Knife edge rollers from igus are offering optimum
results in high speed conveying applications through precise and quick movement
of goods, especially in constrained spaces.

Gentle and speedy transport of goods is critical in
the materials handling and packaging industry. When conveyor belts have to be
deflected with precision in narrow spaces with narrow radii, knife edge rollers
from igus offer a cost-effective, lubrication-free and maintenance-free
solution. Developed by igus from the high performance plastic iglidur H1
material especially for belt deflections in applications involving high
transport speeds, the new knife edge rollers not only deliver better
performance at higher conveying speeds but also have a very long service life
even at high temperatures.

Since the rollers are exposed to aggressive cleaning
media, the use of the chemically resistant iglidur H1 material delivers an
important advantage to the application. These rollers are, therefore,
particularly suitable for the packaging, materials handling, automation and
food technology sectors.

The use of iglidur H1 in the latest knife edge rollers
expands the igus range to a total of four materials. To implement exact
deflection of conveyor belts, igus has developed a standard range for different
application areas.

In addition to the new iglidur H1 for high transport
speeds, igus offers the universally applicable iglidur P210, as well as the
FDA-compliant material iglidur A180 for temperatures up to 90 degrees Celsius,
and iglidur A350 for application environments with temperatures of up to 180
degrees Celsius, both of which are particularly suitable for use in the food
industry.

All the rollers are characterised by a compact design and
long service life, thus contributing to the high efficiency of the machines.
