Tech up & cost down
motion plastics for the
wood industry

Swarf-resistant, dust-proof, dirt-resistant

igus polymer solutions for moving applications help you reduce installation, handling and throughput times. In your woodworking machines and CNC machining centres, our tightly closing energy supply systems ensure the controlled movement of cables, hydraulic and pneumatic hoses and protect them from dust and chips. In addition, our linear guides, plain and ball bearings do not require external lubrication and maintenance. This makes them ideal for use in the wood industry, as chips, dust and dirt cannot adhere to the bearing points thanks to dry running.

Advantages of our products

  • Lubrication-free and maintenance-free bearing components
  • Swarf-resistant, dust-proof and dirt-insensitive energy supply systems
  • Save installation space and weight
  • Quick and easy assembly
  • Complete system or individual components with no minimum order quantity
  • Service life that can be calculated online
