Motion plastics for the printing industry

Clean, quiet, cost-effective solutions for printing technology

The term printing technology refers to numerous methods of duplicating masters and templates. Similarly, igus® motion plastics refers to numerous tribologically optimised polymer products which help you reduce the cost of your equipment and increase its service life. They do this by eliminating the need for lubrication and maintenance with our dry-operating bearing elements or by providing fail-safe cables and optimum cable guidance. From our range of 100,000 modular products, we always offer the right solution for every requirement. Extremely low-vibration energy supplies for very high acceleration rates, super-silent running from 32 dB(A), very high data rates (CAT7, 600 MHz) and a 36-month chainflex® guarantee.
