Car wash industry

Driving a dirty car can be dangerous. With lifestyle time constraints, more people are turning to carwashes to clean cars. These can range from self-service car washes and automatic gantry car washes. Both of these require the car to pass through conveyor belts through various stages of cleaning. The vehicles are cleaned by high-pressure cleaners and foam brushes. In order to meet the ever-increasing demands on modern washing systems, motion plastics products supplied by igus®, are used to increase the service life of the various systems, maintenance-free.
