Solutions in the packaging, food or beverage industry are mostly very sensitive. Special requirements have to be fulfilled, especially where contact with food is concerned. At the same time, packaging equipment must enable precise and fast processing combined with cleanliness and economic efficiency. Tuned to the specific needs of the packaging industry, such as food hygiene, FDA and/or EU compliance, we are able to provide you with our maintenance-free and lubrication-free machine parts made of high-performance polymers that help optimise your packaging machines.
Linear axes with motor and control system for efficient and synchronised format adjustments
Aggressive environmental conditions (cleaning, extreme temperatures, dust and dirt), high hygiene standards, long service life with continuous operation, fast and flexible format adjustments ... The requirements in the packaging, food and beverage industries are manifold. Here you can find out more about the successful use of our motion plastics by our customers.

Increased wear resistance and corrosion resistance for packaging machines
Specifically in an industry reliant on quick, precise processing under hygienic and cost-effective conditions, the combination of Kolsterising and high-performance polymers is expected to become the standard ...
A wide range of igus products are used in the Sleevematic TS. From lubrication-free drylin polymer nuts in the belt station and sleeve brush, and drylin profile guides in the inlet and outlet sensor, up to drylin SLW lead screw lift tables in the preliminary shrinkage process and for height-adjustment of the guide rollers.
Resistance to temperature fluctuations and cleaning agents, as well as hygiene and cost-efficiency are important criteria for the selection of machine components from CFS.B. V. In this packaging machine, FDA-compliant iglidur® A180 bearings and temperature-resistant iglidur® X bearings are used.
Beyer Maschinenbau GmbH was looking for an energy supply system that provides the stability and durability needed in its beverage machines. Our e-chain E4.1L does more than meet this requirement. Due to its design, it is easy to fill and assemble while being cable-friendly at the same time. It therefore shortens assembly times and ensures long-lasting cables.

Today, reliable and efficient machines are required for the labelling of products. What matters is a combination of speed, precision and flexibility. A failure of the labeller? That would be annoying and on top of that very costly. Bluhm Systeme GmbH therefore not only develops fully automated marking systems with labels, inkjet or laser, it also relies on durable and maintenance-free drylin® linear bearing technology.

In the largest plastics test laboratory in the industry, iglidur plain bearings and drylin linear technology are put through their paces. Among other things, they are tested for resistance to media (e.g. cleaning media), and for continuous loading and low-noise operation. The results are incorporated into our tools for service life calculation and enable exact predictions of durability.
Upon request, igus carries out customer tests to check product use under completely customised conditions.
