Solutions for the wood industry

Safe and maintenance-free energy supply systems and plastic plain bearings for the wood industry

Chip-repellent igus® plastic solutions help you to reduce logistics and assembly times, increase throughput times and completely or almost do away with maintenance.
Moreover our energy supply solutions provide for safe guidance of cables, hydraulic and pneumatic hoses in wood working machines, equipment and special machines. Especially in machines with long travel distances, when the e-chain® has to be used in a sliding manner, you can settle between top and bottom branch, influence the smooth running of the e-chain® and reduce the service life of the equipment.
