igus, the tribo-polymer specialist, has added 14 new dimensions to its range of knife-edge rollers, increasing conveyor design and planning flexibility. The plastic knife-edge rollers are suitable for wherever smooth, lubricant-free transfer of transported goods onto downstream conveyors is needed.

Durable knife edge rollers

Because of their compact design and relatively tight radii, the rollers are suitable for use in food production machines, bottling lines and packaging systems, as well as in point-of-sale units in supermarkets.

The 14 new variants, which encompass a selection of lengths and diameters, are made of igus plastic materials to ensure robust and reliable operation over a range of applications.

Available variants

  • iglidur P210 — which is extremely resistant to wear and characterised by low-humidity consumption
  • FDA-compliant iglidur A180 for low to medium loads — suitable for high-humidity applications that come into direct contact with foodstuff and for temperatures up to 90°C
  • iglidur A350 — which is blue in colour for obvious visibility within food manufacture, for medium-to-high loads and temperatures up to 180°C

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.
