In the textile industry, using lubrication-free and dust-resistant components has top priority. With the maintenance-free and tribologically optimised high-performance polymers from igus®, these and many other requirements are fully complied with. igus® products require no additional lubrication and offer a long service life and smooth running, even at high cycle rates in textile machines.
Would you like more information about parts used in the textiles industry? Our experts will be happy to get in touch with you.
Special solutions are just as much part of the igus® product range as standard parts. Our experts match the choice of the manufacturing process and the component material precisely to your textile needs. The right material for your purposes is selected from a wide range of wear-resistant and maintenance-free high-performance polymers.
Implement individual automation applications with the drygear® Apiro® modular gearbox system in an extremely modular and cost-effective way.
Typical application areas are lane adjustments, pusher tasks, gearboxes with various gear ratios, slewing rings and rotary axes.
The UniShed2 machine from Gitec GmbH operates without an electromechanical harness and instead uses vibrating axes that are supported in plain bearings from igus. For this purpose, bearing made of the high-performance polymer iglidur J3 are employed. They improved significantly the service life. Their freedom from lubrication ensures that no maintenance is required and no dust or dirt from the environment sticks to the bearing points.
In the textile industry, quality, precision and cleanness are essential. Therefore, the high reliability and absolute freedom from lubricants speak for the use of energy supplies in flat knitting machines. The igus e-chain ensures safe cable guidance in the machine and long cable service life.
