Optical systems

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.
