In the textile industry, using lubrication-free and dust-resistant components has top priority. With the maintenance-free and tribologically optimised high-performance polymers from igus, these and many other requirements are fully complied with. igus products require no additional lubrication and impress due to their long service life and smooth running, even at high cycle rates in textile machines.
Wear-resistant, strong and quiet operation: two-component ball bearings
Trying things out made easy: with the igus corner, you always have the most recent motion plastics that are suited for your individual industry sector at hand.
We will bring the display to you, assemble it upon request and fill the compartments with the products of your choice. Or you can set it up yourself. As a permanent exhibition or for a limited period of time.

The sample box contains the most important information and igus products for typical applications in the textile industry. These include among others energy supplies, plain bearings, pillow block bearings, clip bearings, spherical bearings and ball bearings, cables, tribo-tape and linear guides.
Special solutions are just as much part of the igus product range as standard parts. Our experts match the choice of the manufacturing process and the component material precisely to your needs. The right material for your purposes is selected from a wide range of wear-resistant and maintenance-free high-performance polymers.
Implement individual automation applications with the drygear® Apiro® modular gearbox system in an extremely modular and cost-effective way.
Typical application areas are lane adjustments, pusher tasks, gearboxes with various gear ratios, slewing rings and rotary axes.
The UniShed2 machine from Gitec GmbH operates without an electromechanical harness and instead uses vibrating axes that are supported in plain bearings from igus. For this purpose, bearing made of the high-performance polymer iglidur J3 are employed. They improved significantly the service life. Their freedom from lubrication ensures that no maintenance is required and no dust or dirt from the environment sticks to the bearing points.
In the textile industry, quality, precision and cleanness are essential. Therefore, the high reliability and absolute freedom from lubricants speak for the use of energy supplies in flat knitting machines. The igus e-chain ensures safe cable guidance in the machine and long cable service life.
By combining an igus plain bearing with a thin-walled metallic bushing, a light sensor could be built, which additionally leads to a cost reduction of 40%.
Until an e-chain was used in this wall cleaner, the electricity cable regularly got twisted, leading to short circuits and downtime of the plant. So as to avoid these incidents, the operator used e-chains by igus and the problem was solved.
