When we refer to components made of high-performance plastics that are used in plastics processing, we know exactly what we are talking about. In our production and monitoring systems, which we adjust to our requirements ourselves, we use our e-chains, maintenance-free plain and linear bearings and cables, sometimes in three-shift operation. In machines and systems for plastics processing, treatment or recycling, or for devices and components for process automation, igus components are durable, lubrication-free, resistant to dust, dirt and moisture, and lightweight, reducing overall weight and follow-up costs, such as those for energy.
When supplying energy to machines, high additional loads, accuracy and high temperatures are important. In injection moulding machines, extruders or blow moulding machines, polymer energy chains guide and protect the cables and hoses. Even with heavy fillings, polymer e-chains have their advantages:
Trying things out made easy: with the igus corner, you always have the most recent motion plastics suited for your individual industry sector at hand.
We will bring the display to you, assemble it on request, and fill the compartments with the products of your choice. Or you can set it up yourself. As a permanent exhibition or for a limited period of time.
With pivot arm mounted in injection moulding machines with plastic plain bearings. With the simple plug-in structure and the adjustable collars, it was possible to dispense with highly complicated joining mechanics.
The e-chain® was placed on an injection moulding tool in such a way that additional space is not necessary for the rolling movement in the horizontal direction.
The crimpers in hose packaging machines often reach temperatures of 160 °C and above in continuous operation.
In conventional solutions, this procedure washes the lubricant out of the plain bearings or even flushes particles of dirt in.
In this application, igus readychain energy chains are used for blown film extrusion.
Resistant to pressure, temperature and chemicals, iglidur plain bearings ensure trouble-free operation in this pillar cleaning system for plastic injection moulding machines.
