FDA compliant and maintenance-free: components for beverage production

Wherever beverages are produced, the demands on these machines and systems are high. Hygiene regulations must be observed, fast movements must run smoothly and system components must withstand aggressive cleaning agents. We offer machine components made of high-performance polymers, products that are abrasion-resistant, lubrication-free, resistant to chemicals and corrosion free.  
Other benefits of igus® products:

  • Low moisture absorption
  • Easy to clean
  • Save installation space and weight
  • Easy assembly
