igus® parts are used in camera and film equipment to reduce costs and maintenance

Whether "do-it-yourself" applications or professional constructions – the versatile drylin® linear guide system offers design freedom for every construction. Specifically in the construction of camera carriages, also referred to as sliders or dollies, technicians, product designers or DIY enthusiasts can make their wishes come true and combine individual components.

Absolutely self-lubricating and virtually silent thanks to the use of tribo-optimzed plastics and aluminum are only two of the many arguments in favour of igus®. In addition, energy chains and chainflex® cables ensure increased dependability even at high speeds and tight bend radii.
People associate emotions and memories with photos and films. A record is kept of every moment deemed special. Something that initially involved a great deal of effort in the darkroom to develop film has become a matter of course thanks to digitalization and the related advances in technology.

It is not only the cameras that have changed, but the equipment involved is setting new technological standards. igus® products not only bring about technological improvements but also save costs.
