FDA compliant and maintenance-free: components for beverage production

Filling, labelling, palletising, cleaning: wherever beverages are produced, the demands on machines and systems are high. Hygiene regulations must be observed, precise format adjustments and fast movements must run smoothly, and system components must withstand aggressive cleaning agents. We offer machine components made of high-performance polymers, which are used precisely here. They are abrasion-resistant, lubrication-free, easy to clean, resistant to chemicals and corrosion and have low moisture absorption.

Benefits of igus products:

  • Lubrication-free and maintenance-free
  • Chemical and corrosion-resistant
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Easy to clean
  • Save installation space and weight
  • Fast delivery
  • Easy assembly
