It is crucial that the components used in medical equipment be dry-running, cleanroom-compatible, media-resistant, corrosion-resistant and noise-damping. igus® supplies plastic plain bearings, linear bearings, cables, and e-chain® cable carriers that encompass all of these properties. Dry-running bearings are used in X-ray robots, laboratory devices, patient chairs, hospital beds and prostheses, among others. Maintenance-free cable carriers are also used to protect and guide cables in operating theater devices, rehabilitation systems, imaging diagnostic equipment and more. It's best to pair these cable carriers with our continuous-flex chainflex® cables, which can achieve low bend radii ideal for compact medical equipment. Cleanroom-compatible cables and cable carriers are available as well.
Our components are also accompanied by easy-to-use configurators and service life calculators to accurately predict service life, configure or customize your solutions, request a quote or place an order, and more.
