Tech up & cost down
motion plastics for the
general packaging industry

Safety, precision, short throughput times – these are the main requirements for machines and equipment in the packaging industry. To enable you to place your trust in safe and reliable components, we supply polymer solutions that have been specially developed for moving applications.
Whether in forming, filling, weighing and sealing machines, in bag forming or pharmaceutical packaging machines or in strapping machines and dosing systems – we offer machine components that work without any external lubrication and meet the strict requirements for food hygiene and food safety.

Use of igus® products in general packaging

Application examples of our customers

Tubular bag packing machines

Easy to install and easy to clean

The company Hastamat from Germany uses igus® products for its tubular bag packing machines. Lubrication-free and maintenance-free drylin® linear guides withstand adverse ambient influences.
Hastamat Verpackungstechnik GmbH

Thermo-forming packaging machinery

Cost-effective, lubrication-free and requiring little maintenance

Resistance to temperature fluctuations and cleaning agents, as well as hygiene and cost-efficiency are important criteria for the selection of machine components at the company CFS. B. V. In this packaging machine, FDA-compliant iglidur® A180 bearings and temperature-resistant
iglidur® X bearings from igus® are used.

Nappy production machines

Problem-free movement

In nappy production, machine elements have to function in rough ambient conditions. Lubrication-free linear bearings that are insensitive to dirt have been installed in very different places in the nappy production machines.


Short installation time, long service life

Beyer Maschinenbau GmbH was looking for an energy supply system that provides the stability and durability needed in its machines for the beverage industry. The E4.1L energy supply system from igus® meets more than these requirements. Due to its design, it is easy to fill and assemble while being cable-friendly at the same time. It therefore shortens assembly times and ensures long-lasting cables.
