The term 'printing technology' refers to numerous methods of duplicating masters and templates. In the same way, igus® motion plastics® refer to numerous tribologically optimized plastic products, which helps you to reduce the cost of your equipment and increase its service life. Whether this is due to the absence of no external lubrication and maintenance or due to fail-safe cables and optimum cable guidance. From our range of 100,000 modular products, we always offer the right solution whatever the requirements are. Extremely low-vibration energy guides for very high acceleration rates, abrasion-resistant and confirmed to be in account with IPA DIN EN ISO Class 1, super-quiet from 32 dB(A), very high data rates CAT7, 600 MHz and a cable guarantee against failure for 36 months .

In many industries, an ever greater significance is ascribed to the sound pressure level of machines.
The individual machine elements, including
energy chains or linear technology,
are also selected against these criteria.
The drylin® linear technology is also characterized by
very low operating noise. Quiet operation is
due to the difference between rolling and sliding. There is no mechanical rolling up of hard gliding partner and no ball collisions that cause loud noises.
The special structure of the chain links and the small pitch are the reasons for the extremely quiet and low-vibration characteristics of the E6 e-chain® product line during operation. We have had this confirmed in a study conducted by the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of RWTH Aachen University.
Use is also possible in very dirty and dusty environments. Particles are repelled from the contact surface by the movement itself. Seals can be dispensed with due to the dry operation. Dust and dirt cannot stick to grease or oil.
drylin® linear bearing systems are designed for dry-running. Your applications are thereby protected against soiling by grease or oil. Products can even be used in very dirty environments with a lot of paper dust.
The Fraunhofer Institute IPA has tested several igus® energy chains series according to DIN EN ISO 14644-1. In this way, precise statements on the cleanroom application potentials of almost all popular igus® e-chain® systems are available now.
igus® operates the largest test laboratory in the industry, with test setups for energy chains, highly flexible cables, plastic bearings as well as plain bearings, ball bearings and linear bearings, lead screw drives, bar stock, piston rings etc.
