Woodworking machinery solutions for moving applications

igus ® plastic solutions for moving applications help you to reduce installation, handling and throughput times. Time-consuming maintenance work can be minimised with dry running, swarf-resistant solutions from a single source. Where there is dust and swarf, the very tightly sealed igus® energy supplies ensure the safe and secure movement of cables, hydraulic and pneumatic hoses in woodworking machines or CNC processing centres. In addition, the dry running igus® linear guides, plain bearings and ball bearings are absolutely lubrication- and maintenance-free making them the first choice for the woodworking industry, as swarf, dust and dirt do not settle on the bearings.

Application examples of our customers

Tested for tightness and service life perfect for woodworking machinery

Leak test in a chip drum Having products that prevent ant chips and swarf into a machine is invaluable and thanks to its modular design the e-tube is ideal. This video shows the chain being put in real life applications to be thoroughly tested. 
Endurance tests of moving cables Continuous testing is crucial and in order to be able to offer up to 36 month guaranatees on our chainflex® cables, testing is key. With real life applications as well as enduring vigirous testing, we know what our cables can do.
