Rollers for belt deflection in an ironing machine

In a fully automated ironing machine of an Asian customer in the textile industry, our iglidur®  H1 was used as guide roller for a conveyor belt. Previously, bronze rollers were used. Thanks to our material, the customer was able to reduce wear and tear and thus reduce the maintenance effort. The rollers were mechanically manufactured from a round bar.
