MAINTENANCE-FREE PACKAGING BEARING TECHNOLOGY FROM TREOTHAM

Packaging machinery manufacturers rely on high-performance components, especially where the products need to be packed in a timely, hygienic and energy-efficient manner.

Because of this, machinery must be designed and manufactured under strict rules and regulations.

igus is now offering individual components that meet these guidelines, as well as complete systems for packaging equipment, all meeting industry guidelines.

Policies for food handling and hygiene are clearly defined by Australian standards and regulators, which is one reason why igus’ blue food-grade products are easily identifiable for added safety.

The company’s ‘tribo-tape’ material, made from proven self-lubricating iglide A160 material, is suited for lowering friction in a wide range of applications thanks to its low wear values. The tribo-tape is specifically notable for its maintenance-free dry-running properties that allow the addition of sliding surfaces wherever necessary.

The iglide A160 material is also available in custom-machined bar stock for components with reliable clean room and low-friction properties. Food-grade materials like iglide A181 and A350 are also available for even more challenging applications, such as those in extreme temperatures. Even for conveyor systems, injection molded knife-edge rollers from igus allow for the avoidance of external lubricants, while maintaining excellent wear values.

Recently, igus has also developed a standing in the realm of drive technology. Their DryLin range of linear products has evolved, and is now enhanced by two new linear modules, the DryLin SLW Protect, and the SLWT-1080, The SLW Protect system is designed for sensitive environments, and features a protective mechanism that safeguards the lead screw and nut against impacts and falling debris.

The SLWT-1080 is equipped with a twin lead screw system, which allows separate control of the carriages, allowing various screw pitches to be combined for operational flexibility.

The new DryLin E stepper motors also create new linear design possibilities. The laterally mounted stepper motors’ compact design allows the motor to be mounted adjacent to the system, reducing the overall footprint.

The innovative, plug and play ReadyCable and ReadyChain product lines ensure savings in logistics, installation, and downtime by significantly reducing assembly and maintenance time.

Ranging from individual components to complete, fully harnessed systems, Treotham Automation has access to more than 100,000 igus products for packaging machinery designers and builders.
