Motion plastics for the packaging industry

Lubrication-free and low-abrasion components for hygienically sensitive production lines

Where packaging comes into play at the end, sensitive goods such as food and beverages are often involved beforehand. In these complex production lines, speed, precision and purity are of the essence. Adapted to these requirements of the packaging industry, we offer a wide range of plastic machine elements that conform to FDA and EU 10/2011 stipulations, run without lubrication and maintenance breaks and make their contribution to economical production.
