Application examples of our customers

Sleevematic TS labelling system

Successful cooperation for more than 25 years

A wide range of igus® products are used in the Sleevematic TS. From lubrication-free drylin® plastic nuts in the belt station and sleeve brush, and drylin® profile guides in the inlet and outlet sensor, to drylin® SLW lead screw lift tables in the preliminary shrinkage process and for height-adjustment of the guide rollers.
Krones AG

Innoket Neo labelling machines

High precision and extremely high speed

In addition to corrosion resistance and hygiene, speed plays an important role for this machine as up to 60,000 bottles are labelled every hour. Lubrication-free drylin® W linear guides from igus® are used here.
KHS GmbH

Tubular bag packing machines

Easy to install and easy to clean

The company Hastamat from Germany uses igus® products for its tubular bag packing machines. Lubrication-free and maintenance-free drylin® linear guides withstand adverse ambient influences.
