Igus will present its new tribo-tape at the show
igus a producer of injection moulded polymer bearings and reinforced plastic cable carriers, has unveiled its new tribo-tape material, made from tribologically optimised, food-grade material.
The material, which is coloured blue for easy identification, is designed to reduce wear on a wide range of applications. Thanks to its low friction and abrasion values, the tribo-tape has maintenance-free dry-running properties to improve sliding surfaces where required.
igus is showcasing its full service offering. With its speedigus range of manufacturing services, igus can offer engineers solutions from concept or prototype to full production volume parts. The speedigus offering includes: speedicut, a rapid machining service, speedimold, a rapid prototyping and injection moulding service, and the recently launched speedifit, a service which supplies bespoke complete bearing assemblies and solutions. These services enable time and cost savings making it easy for customers to achieve cost-effective bespoke solutions.
Also featured on the stand are igus’ latest stock plates, which increase design flexibility for engineers when customising special parts. The recently launched iglidur J stock plate material, boasts low coefficients of friction in dry operation, low moisture absorption and high wear and chemical resistance while requiring no maintenance. The stock plate material is also suitable for parts that need to withstand temperatures from -50 ºC to 120 ºC. Available in a variety of thicknesses from 2mm to 40mm, engineers can obtain machined parts such as wear plates and strips quickly and cost-effectively with less waste.
A wide range of igus energy chains are also on display. The energy chains are fabricated from high performance plastics – they are tough, resistant to corrosion and impact, and offer high UV, temperature and precipitation stability.
Complementing the energy chains are igus chainflex cables, which have been specially developed with constantly moving applications in mind. The chainflex cables offer reliable performance with high cycle rates, and very small bending radii of up to four times the outer cable diameter.
