Clean, quiet and cost-effective solutions for print technology

The term printing technology refers to numerous methods of duplicating masters and templates. In the same way, igus motion plastics refers to numerous tribologically optimised plastic products, which help you to reduce the cost of your equipment and increase its service life. This may be due to the lack of need for lubrication and maintenance or due to our dry-running bearing elements or due to fail-safe cables and optimum cable guidance. From our range of 100,000 modular products, we always offer the right solution whatever the requirements are. Extremely low-vibration energy supplies for very high acceleration rates, abrasion-resistant and confirmed to be in accordance with IPA DIN EN ISO Class 1, super-silent from 32 dB(A), very high data rates CAT7, 600 MHz and a cable guarantee of 36 months against failure.
