The absence of a need for open lubricants protects optical systems against problematic deposits. High loads can also be absorbed and even sensitive media such as fibre optic cables (FOCs) can be guided safely and reliably. iglidur® materials and igus® energy chains are therefore used in:
lead screw modules for focussing, collimator inserts, pivoting units, optical testing systems, carrier systems for operation theatre microscopes.
Advantages of igus® products in optical systems in the area of medical technology
Suitable for many types of shaft
No sticking or slipping, also lead screw modules
Low noise during movement
Pre-loaded variants possible
