Following the introduction last year of the blue tribo-tape made of the food-compliant iglidur A160 material, igus has introduced the latest developments to its range. This material can be used as a versatile lining of potential wearing surfaces and forms; it is also suitable for applications including materials handling and machine-tool sliding beds. 

The first new development is the iglidur V400 tribo-tape, developed specifically for high-temperature applications. The wear-resistant tribo-tape can withstand upper long-term application temperatures of 200ºC as well as negative effects from chemicals, water, dust and debris.

Where the igus tribo-tape is a visible part within a system, the new black option offers even more design freedom. Made of iglidur B160, this black material provides a higher wear resistance compared with its blue A160 relative.

All materials are self-lubricating and maintenance free, available with or without a self-adhesive back. Reels of tribo-tape are offered in two standard widths (100mm or 120mm) but can easily be ordered in any widths up to and including 500mm; standard thickness is 0.5mm, while the 500mm width is 1mm thick.

igus will be exhibiting at this year’s Manufacturing & North East event, which is being held at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on 8–9 July. 

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
