Automatic disinfectant machine
What was needed: A cleaning machine that disinfects reusable cups within a few seconds using steam at 140°C
Requirements: Absolutely no lubrication or maintenance, use in small installation spaces, robustness, reliability, low-friction dry operation, wear resistance, quiet operation
Products used: drylin® SLW-1040 with integrated stainless steel dryspin® high helix lead screw, drylin® guide rail and matching DC motor
Success for the customer: To make the machine compact, the designers had to miniaturise all components – including the linear guides and bearings for the cleaning dome, which descends over the cup before cleaning. The components also had to be robust, reliable, low-maintenance, and free of grease. igus® linear guides and polymer plain bearings are therefore being used.
