Compliance with the highest hygiene standards, precise and fast processing, safety and reliability

Solutions in the packaging, food or beverage industry are mostly very sensitive. Special requirements have to be fulfilled, especially where contact with food is concerned. At the same time, packaging equipment must enable precise and fast processing combined with cleanliness and economic efficiency. Tuned to the specific needs of the packaging industry, such as food hygiene, FDA and/or EU compliance, we are able to provide you with our maintenance-free and lubrication-free machine parts made of high-performance polymers that help optimise your packaging machines.

Advantages of igus solutions:

  • Cost-effective
  • Save installation space and weight
  • Maintenance-free for 24/7 use
  • Fast delivery
  • Easy assembly
  • Complete system or individual components with no minimum order quantity
  • Service life calculation
  • Low noise and low vibration

Application examples of our customers

Tested in the igus test laboratory for use in the real world

In the largest plastics test laboratory in the industry, iglidur plain bearings and drylin linear technology are put through their paces. Among other things, they are tested for resistance to media (e.g. cleaning media), and for continuous loading and low-noise operation. The results are incorporated into our tools for service life­ calculation and enable exact predictions of durability.
Upon request, igus carries out customer tests to check product use under completely tailored conditions.
