Our high-performance polymers for the food industry are lubrication-free and can be sterilised with hot steam and cleaned with chemical substances. They fulfil essential requirements for use in food processing machines and food production processes. The blue colouring makes them easy to detect and in addition, they offer all the typical igus® advantages such as:
Abrasive dust and grain husks are an extreme load for the components in impact hullers in the food industry. The designers therefore turned to drylin® fixed flange bearings to reduce downtime, minimise operating costs and also improve the technology.
Streckel & Schrader GmbH & Co. KG
iglidur® plain bearings and drylin® R linear guides are used in multihead weighers of the company Atoma GmbH. The components used are lubrication-free and insensitive to very thorough cleaning processes in food production.
The company Walterwerk has been relying on lubrication-free bearing technology from igus® for many years. It is suitable for use in adverse ambient conditions, where machines are regular cleaned with aggressive media.
Walterwerk Kiel GmbH & Co. KG
drylin® linear guides, trapezoidal lead screws and igubal® flange bearings from igus® are used extremely precisely in sausage cutting machines of Singer & Sohn and, in contrast to needle bearings, are characterised by robustness, ease of cleaning and resistance to chemicals.
