Proven and new at the same time: tribo-polymer iglidur E7 for energy-efficient plain bearings

Published on: 8th December 2019

With specifications such as low coefficient of friction and excellent vibration dampening, the tribo-polymer iglidur E7 has already proven its strengths in the sliding elements of the drylin linear technology from igus. Now the plastics specialist has also included the material in its plain bearings catalogue range. This also allows users to benefit from iglidur E7 mechanisms with rotating or pivoting movements. The low coefficient of friction of the material ensures smooth movements, reduces the required drive energy and saves additional costs.

Autonomous through the factory: this is how igus makes automated guided vehicles more fail-safe

Published on: 4th September 2019

In times of increasing digitalisation of factories and warehouses, au-tomated guided vehicles (AGVs) are continuously conquering intralo-gistics. The reliability requirements are high in order to ensure faster processing and unimpeded material flow. AGV manufacturers are therefore equipping their systems with motion plastics components from igus, which make the autonomous vehicles less maintenance-intensive, lighter and more energy-efficient.
