Agricultural engineering

Eliminating lubrication requirements and ensuring a long service life are two important considerations for the agricultural industry.

In many applications, bronze bushings can be replaced by oil-free plastic bushings. By doing this, you can often improve your technology and save costs at the same time.

The advantages of iglide® plastic bushings are:

Self-lubricating

Corrosion-resistant

Dry-running

Resistant to dust and dirt

High mechanical stability

Vibration dampening

Insensitive to dust and dirt

Custom dimensions according to drawings... even for small quantities

Highly wear resistant, dirt-repellent, robust and maintenance-free

Harvesting machine

This harvesting machine processes strawberries, from picking in the field to on-site packaging. First, it picks each individual fruit, using a computer-controlled detection program. Then the strawberries are transported via belts to the packaging trays. The picking arms have to have flexibility to prevent damage to the fruit while in motion. With limited operating space, a compact design was necessary. The compact dimensions of igus® E-Z Chain® were perfect for this application.
