The design rules for the most cost-effective injection moulding designs apply to plain bearings in particular, to wear-resistant parts in general and to all other components anyway. The pressure to save costs is particularly high for plain bearings and wear-resistant parts. As “disposable parts”, these should last as long as possible, but also cost as […]
Often enough, it is the surrounding factors such as housing hole, shaft and other elements that predetermine what plain bearing dimensions are chosen. Then whether a bearing with a length of 10mm or 12mm is selected only depends on the price or availability. But what about when these factors delimit the choice so tightly that […]
igus motion plastics – tribologically optimised high-performance polymers for moving applications – are the result of decades of research and development work. Each igus material, known under the iglidur brand name (https://www.igus.eu/iglidur), is thoroughly tested in our 3,800m² test laboratory. We have a huge material selection and are constantly adding new materials developed for various […]
Automation solutions for component handling, machine feeding and simple pick & place tasks are state of the art. The high-speed handling devices are optimised for maximum performance and speed. With such dynamics, the energy chains and cables are also subject to high loads. The igus e-rib corrugated hose protection puts things right!
Injection moulding is one of the primary processing methods in plastics processing. It is the most widely used processing method. About one third of all plastics are processed on injection moulding machines. Energy chain systems, highly flexible cables and bearing technology solutions by igus ensure a long service life of all parts of injection moulding machines.
