Today, machines and equipment in the beverage industry have to be capable of implementing precise format adjustments while coping with rapid movements in the filling process and withstanding aggressive cleaning agents. We therefore supply you with machine components made of high-performance plastics that offer safe and reliable operation without any additional lubrication.
Tech up, cost down - with new, food-compatible knife edge rollers for belt speeds of up to 1m/s.

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.
igus® lead screw lifting modules from the drylin® product range are used in the company Fricke. The lead screw lifting modules work without lubrication and cause minimum abrasion. They also reduce costs
Fricke Abfülltechnik GmbH & Co. KG
For more than 20 years, igus® components have been used at Küppersbusch GmbH as they have a long service life and need no additional lubrication. This not only makes them hygienic but also saves maintenance costs and time. One of the Küppersbusch filling machine has already completed 40 million cycles, whereby the first shaft and the first igus® plain bearings are still being used.
No additional lubrication and maintenance-free
Easy to clean
Low moisture absorption
