In order to comply with the strict requirements for food hygiene and food safety in all stages of a process, igus® supplies you with plastic solutions for your food-processing machines and equipment. As these machine components have been specially developed for moving applications and do not require any lubrication, product contamination is ruled out completely.
Tech up, cost down - with new, food-compatible knife edge rollers for belt speeds of up to 1m/s.

Lubrication and maintenance-free
iglidur® plain bearings and drylin® R linear guides are used in multihead weighers of the company Atoma GmbH. The components used are lubrication-free and insensitive to very thorough cleaning processes in food production.
The company Walterwerk has been relying on lubrication-free bearing technology from igus® for many years. It is suitable for use in adverse ambient conditions, where machines are regular cleaned with aggressive media.
Walterwerk Kiel GmbH & Co. KG
drylin® linear guides, trapezoidal lead screws and igubal® flange bearings from igus® are used extremely precisely in sausage cutting machines of Singer & Sohn and, in contrast to needle bearings, are characterised by robustness, ease of cleaning and resistance to chemicals.
Singer & Sohn GmbH
FDA-compliant polymers and certification according to EU regulation 10/2011
No lubrication, no product contamination
Low moisture absorption
Chemical resistance, acid resistance, resistance to alkaline and alcoholic cleaning agents
High wear resistance
Specifically in an industry reliant on quick, precise processing under hygienic and cost-effective conditions, the combination of kolsterising and high-grade plastics is expected to become the standard.
