Medical device products


Our plastics for movement have been used successfully for many years in imaging diagnostics, intensive care, therapy, eye and dental medicine. Our e-chains and cables carry data and energy safely and without interference, for example in ceiling pendants of X-ray equipment and Bucky tables. They are developed for a wide range of motion types and speeds and are also available for tight installation spaces with small bend radii.
Our bearings have excellent coefficients of friction and are free from external lubrication. As a result, they do not attract dirt and remain clean and hygienic. They ensure precise movements in infusion and dialysis pumps and smooth and maintenance-free adjustments of treatment units in dentistry and ophthalmology.
Another advantage of our motion plastics: they are radiation-resistant, non-ferromagnetic, highly durable and quiet.

Success stories

Perfusor Braun Melsungen AG

High-precision Perfusor dosing with iglidur plain bearings

For the precise emptying of syringes in their Perfusors, B. Braun Melsungen AG was looking for an easily installable bearing with minimal coefficients of friction in order to implement jerk-free movement in the smallest possible installation space. The solution: a specially manufactured clip bearing made of iglidur J material.

X-ray robots from Buck Engineering & Consulting

Guide cables safely during tight circular movements

Energy chains from the twisterchain series are used in X-ray robots from Buck Engineering & Consulting GmbH. The twisterchain enables safe cable guidance in the case of rotations of up to 540Ā°.
