igus® components for maintenance-free operator cabins

The design of cabs in work machines such as cranes, agricultural machinery and construction machinery must meet high quality standards to ensure safety and productivity on the field, construction site or port. Wherever movement takes place - for example in the adjustment options of the seats, the control elements or when adjusting the displays - everything must run smoothly.

Thanks to dry operation, drylin® linear bearings and iglidur® plain bearings work maintenance-free and lubrication-free, permanently rattle-free and are insensitive to dirt, dust and corrosion. They are therefore suitable for use in the machine environment and can contribute to a long service life in the operator cabin.

Tractor cab ​​​​​

Prepared for the Onfield 4.0 operator cabin

The latest trend in cab design for agricultural machinery is the Onfield 4.0 cab. Tractors or harvesters such as combine harvesters are already often GPS-controlled and equipped with extensive sensors.
So that the farmer can be productive even with a low workload, digital networking will continue to increase. Office tasks such as accounting should then be carried out from the agricultural machine. Displays with flexible adjustment options will thus shape the interior design even more. But the driver's seat must also be very flexible and must be able to be turned to face the side console, for example.

Crane cab ​​​​​

Flexible seats for more safety with high productivity

Whether in a construction crane, port crane or intermodal crane. Modern crane operator cabins are characterised above all by the driver's seats with a wide range of adjustment options.
This not only applies to flexibly adjustable headrests and armrests. In order to always have an overview when lifting the load, the seats should be able to be moved linearly forwards and backwards and also be easy to tilt. This ensures high productivity with a high level of safety at the same time. Further adjustments in the crane cab are made with movable displays and control elements, and above all the master switch.

Crane cab ​​​​​

Operate heavy machinery safely

Excavators, wheel loaders, tracked vehicles or transporters: the cabin design also plays its part in the safe movement of heavy machinery. A high level of comfort, a good overview and a natural sitting position are required here. A wide range of seat adjustments, such as linear rails on the arm and headrests or plain bearings on the back adjustment, allow the correct seating position for every machine operator.
They must also work maintenance-free when in contact with dirt and high humidity. In addition, the user must be able to rely on the flawless and smooth operation of the control instruments. Vibration-dampening, maintenance-free and lubrication-free bearings are used here.
