This automated production machine manufactures wire hooks for merchandise display. It joins sheet metal and wires in a spot-welding process and the nejects the finished product. The wires have to be fed very precisely from the hopper. This is ensured by iglidur® plain bearings, and the fact that they do not require lubrication or maintenance is also key to the productivity of the factory and the quality of the manufactured products. In addition, igus® energy chains are used in the electrical and pneumatic supply.
