igus ® plastic solutions for moving applications in woodworking machinery help you to reduce installation, handling and throughput times. Time-consuming maintenance work can be minimised with dry running, swarf-resistant solutions from a single source. Where there is dust and swarf, the very tightly sealed igus® energy supplies ensure the safe and secure movement of cables, hydraulic and pneumatic hoses in woodworking machinery or CNC processing centres. In addition, the dry running igus® linear guides, plain bearings and ball bearings are absolutely lubrication- and maintenance-free making them the first choice for woodworking machinery.
Your benefits at a glance:
This lathe made by HOMAG India processes wooden parts, which causes a large amount of wood chips and dust. The use of iglidur® plain bearings, which contain solid lubricant, means that the machine's bearings are low maintenance and do not have to be lubricated in any way. This cuts costs and saves service time as well as preventing wood swarf and dust from sticking to the bearings.
