iglide F3 rollers

Wear-resistant and conductive

iglide F3 material is now also available for rollers. When electrical conductivity is important and electrostatic charging of the components is to be avoided, iglide F3 is exactly the right choice. As the material contains incorporated solid lubricants, the rollers can be used without any additional lubricants and the maintenance associated with them. The use of ball bearings is therefore not necessary.

Tech up

Tech up

  • Electrically discharging in accordance with DIN EN 12527
  • Ball bearings not necessary
  • Wear-resistant

Cost down

Cost down

  • Reduces costs for lubricant and maintenance

  • igus supports the circular economy of plastics and is investing in chemical recycling

Beverage filling machine with wear-resistant polymer rollers made of iglidur material

Permanent load in three shifts

We have developed iglide F3 rollers for this purpose​

For this beverage bottling line, Krones AG was looking for wear-resistant rollers that would ensure a functioning system in the long term. The rollers used so far could not withstand the high cycle rates and the work in three-shift operation. "Earlier the rollers in particular wore out too quickly, so that the customer had to overhaul the clamping star wheel relatively frequently [...]. Here there was an urgent need for action. We have now eliminated this weakness. " Jürgen Steimmer, Group Manager Labelling Technology, Krones AG
Krones AG found the solution in igus polymer rollers. They consist of a polymer sleeve  provided with an outer jacket made of TPU. Here, the iglidur material shows why it is a good choice, mainly due to its wear resistance. The outer jacket provides good grip on the outer component so that the bearing is always carried along. Accordingly, only the polymer sleeve made of iglidur wears out.  The service life could almost be doubled with the iglidur rollers.
