Dosing system with iglidur plain bearings

Thrown into the balance? Or rather, slipped?

We have developed iglidur AX500 for this purpose

How is it that these little bags always contain exactly 12 grammes of wine gums? So-called dosing systems with highly sensitive mechanisms dispense thousands of them at lightning speed. And then it's on to the slides and belts and into the box. ​

All these mechanisms and slides are subject to wear. iglidur AX500 plain bearings help make bearing points maintenance-free and durable.
