- What was needed: Uninterrupted flow in the bottling process
- Requirements: Smooth running of the ball bearings, no need for external lubricants, no maintenance
- Material: xirodur® B180
- Industry: Beverages sector
- Success for the customer: Guide rollers from igus ensure a reliable service with excellent coefficients of wear and friction without interrupting the process.
Go to the labelling machine:With the Sleevematic labelling machine, labels are cut from the roll one at a time and then attached to the bottles. Once a roll of labels is depleted, it needs to be replaced by a new one without stopping the entire plant. Here the so-called "buffer conveyor" is used as a film storage, in which Krones employs xiros plastic ball bearings from igus.
