Guide systems in a die head for small size tiles
Guide systems that do not need lubrication, work reliably in dusty conditions and only take up little installation space – these are the requirements in the case of a new die head for small size tiles. The solution: maintenance-free drylin® linear plain bearings from igus®. These take the place of the ball linings previously used, which failed after a short time due to the high level of dust. The die head made by Kautenburger GmbH, Merzig-Brotdorf, also attracted attention at the “manus®” competition with its much reduced servicing costs.
