High speeds and high waves not only make for a lot of fun on board high-speed boats, they can also be dangerous as passengers experience a physical shock every time the boat’s hull strikes the water. Vibration-dampening seats with bearings that absorb these shocks are therefore called for. Designers are able to rely on wear-resistant igus linear bearing technology, thanks to the use of tribo-polymers that are lubrication-free, maintenance-free and corrosion-free.
Fast automation in confined installation spaces: igus has now developed an extra-compact toothed belt axis based on its flat drylin N linear system. The new axis consists of a completely standard fitment of components and is thus easily assembled within a few minutes and cost-effective. Equipped with motor and control, the new system can carry loads of up to 20 Newton and a translation of 60 millimetres per revolution.
