Durable components for machines for plastic and rubber processing

When we refer to components made of high-performance plastics that are used in plastics processing, we know exactly what we are talking about. In our production and monitoring systems, which we adjust to our requirements ourselves, we use our e-chains, maintenance-free plain and linear bearings and cables, sometimes in three-shift operation. In machines and systems for plastics processing, treatment or recycling, or for devices and components for process automation, igus® components are durable, lubrication-free, resistant to dust, dirt and moisture, and lightweight, reducing overall weight and follow-up costs, such as those for energy.

Advantages of polymer e-chains

When supplying energy to machines, high additional loads, accuracy and high temperatures are important. In injection moulding machines, extruders or blow moulding machines, polymer energy chains guide and protect the cables and hoses. Even with heavy fillings, polymer e-chains have their advantages:

  • High fill weights possible
  • Circular and pivoting movements possible
  • Use at high temperatures
  • Resistant to dust, powder deposits and moisture
  • Space-saving

With cost-effective automation solutions and smart plastics, igus also addresses the key topic Plastic Industry 4.0 and system integration.
