Diagnostic imaging (CT/MRI/X-ray)

Modern medical technology places exacting requirements on all the materials that it uses. And rightly so. After all, the innovations and products in this branch of industry improve patients' quality of life and health or even save people's lives. They are launched on the market in shorter and shorter cycles and are becoming increasingly precise, fast and non-wearing. Medical devices must therefore be safe, function absolutely reliably and provide especially precise results.

Advantages of igus® products in imaging diagnostics:


RBR solutions possible

Without lubrication

Clean and hygienic

Quiet operation

Small bend radii possible

Good friction values, extremely robust

Good resistance to radiation
