Wheel guide for transport vehicle

manus® 2005
 
 

"A large German architecture firm constructed a wheel guide by means of chamfered stainless steel plates for a transport vehicle. Result in two years = Vehicle damages worth over Euro 12,000. Job description of the operator: To develop a design that would entirely prevent the damages. By the novel arrangement of the bearing (plain bearing guide with igus® iglidur® rollers on hard aluminum or stainless steel shafts mounted every 1000 mm or so) in linear direction based on the bearing axis, we accomplished the job in such a way that the drive wheels of the vehicle utilize the rotary movement of the individual bearing to guide the front wheels of a transport vehicle accurately through the track of the unloading station with minimum friction losses. ”
