motion plastics for lifting tables

Store high loads without lubrication

Lifting tables may not be the most imposing, but they are indispensable systems in intralogistics. They are used wherever loads have to be brought to a desired height. With high load capacities of several tons in some cases and high stroke frequencies in multi-shift operation, the bearing points are exposed to high loads. In order to work reliably, the metallic bearings usually used must be lubricated regularly, especially when they are exposed to the outdoor weather. With iglidur plain bearings made of high-performance polymers, you increase the service life of your lifting tables and reduce the costs associated with the maintenance effort.

  • No maintenance thanks to dry running
  • No corrosion, suitable for outdoor use
  • Resistant to surface pressure up to 200MPa
  • Resistant to impact and edge loads

Model of a lifting table from the Spanish company Porbisa

Maintenance-free after replacement of bronze bearings

In the galvanised lifting tables from Porbisa, iglidur bearings replace the bronze bearings previously used. Their assembly is quick, easy and clean. Effort and costs for lubrication during assembly and subsequent maintenance are eliminated.

Advanced Handling lifting table

Longer service life, longer operating times

British company Advanced Handling used various metallic bearings in the lifting mechanism of the scissor lift tables, which frequently wore out and required permanent lubrication. After the change to iglidur plain bearings, the lubrication input is zero and the wear of the bearings has decreased many times over.

Lifting table from Innovative Hebe Technik GmbH

Rigid chain drive with maintenance-free bearings

Innovative Hebe Technik GmbH relies on the use of reach truck drive chains for its lifting tables. iglidur Q2 plain bearings provide a maintenance-free and almost wear-free bearing that can withstand high surface pressures without problems.
