Tech up & cost down motion plastics for the glass industry
Accuracy plays a vital role in the glass industry, as cutting and trimming to size to meet individual customer requirements involves high-precision work. Cutting glass to size for tables, mirrors or doors often leaves sharp edges. The edges are processed in a grinding and polishing process so as to minimise the risk of injuries. From surface, joining and forming technology or in handling: with our e-chain systems, chainflex cables for movement and bearing technology made of tribologically optimised high-performance polymers, we always have the ideal solution at hand for your individual application in the glass industry.
Tested in the test laboratory for use in the real world
All products are tested for wear and durability under real-life conditions in the igus test laboratory, the largest in the industry. This enables the precise determination of the service life of the products.
Upon request, igus carries out customer tests to check product use under completely tailored conditions.
This facility – the only one in the world – makes it possible to process twelve metres of glass and, at the same time, ensure high productivity. igus e-chains allow for a secure energy supply at different places.
More compact, more cost-effective, more lightweight
The portable laser engraving machines from Cerion GmbH can be found in shops all over the world. During the machine redesign, it was possible to reduce size, price and weight thanks to the linear technology components from igus.
This application, which resembles a robot, slides the glass products arriving from the moulding plant at a temperature of around 500°C into a cooling kiln. Here, our triflex e-chain, which was developed specifically for 3D movements, ensures a safe energy supply.
