Filling systems


Filling systems or filling stations often constitute modular individual sections of a larger packaging line. Regardless of whether it is a partially or fully automated system, our modular rotary and linear bearing technology can be installed in any beverage filling system. At the centre of the filling station is the filling arm, which precisely fills containers such as pails, canisters or hobbocks with different contents and in a wide variety of sectors.
The top priority of these components is that they are easy to clean, do not require lubricants and fulfil high service life requirements.

Areas where igus® products are used in filling systems

Control valve Filling systems

Control valve

iglidur® J plain bearings or iglidur® H370 guide rings are used for control valve linear movement in the filling system.
Filling and dosing station Filling systems

Filling and dosing station

The bottles are lifted by at the valves and pumps of the filling stations by drylin® T-rail guides. In the cam-guided lifting element for the bottles, plain bearings made of iglidur® J, drylin® JUM liners or iglidur® H plain bearings are also used.
Operating mechanism circular filler

Operating mechanism for a circular filler

The pivoting movement in the pinion bearing uses iglidur® J guide rings that are more wear-resistant than PTFE strips and have a high load capacity. A drylin® R JUM linear bearing is used for cam-guided linear movement.
Clamping wheel of filling systems

Clamping wheel

iglidur® J or iglidur® X plain bearings are used as bearings for the clamping elements. Two-component rollers made of an iglidur® plastic roller and a TPU outer jacket ensure the smooth and wear-free movement on the rotary axis.

Product application examples

The following filling systems provide some important examples of applications for igus® products, including our linear bearing and plain bearing technology.
