motion plastics for
vending machine technology

Vending machine technology is establishing itself in ever more industry sectors. Users benefit from the convenience of having the desired product quickly at hand and at the same time needing little space for storage. Alongside industrial application of the technology in pick & place applications or in tool handling machines, to name two examples, increasing numbers of vending machines are being deployed directly in salesrooms. They are setting new standards with regard to speed and quiet operation. igus quality has already successfully proven itself in a wide range of beverage, coffee and snack vending machines. All movements have one thing in common: fully automated systems start and run in the background-quickly, quietly and maintenance-free. For such applications, motion plastics manufacturer igus offers a wide range of products: lubrication-free, quiet drylin drive modules for positioning movements, dependable energy chains and cables, maintenance-free plain bearings, efficient high helix threads and light linear guides, even for the smallest of installation spaces.
