Chip, dirt & dust-resistant cables, carriers & bearings for the woodworking industry

igus ® plastic solutions for moving applications help you to reduce installation, handling and throughput times. Time-consuming maintenance work can be minimized with dry running, chip-resistant solutions from a single source. Where there is dust and chips, the very tightly sealed igus® energy supplies ensure the safe and secure movement of cables, hydraulic and pneumatic hoses in woodworking machines or CNC processing centers. In addition, the dry running igus® linear guides, plain bearings and ball bearings are absolutely self-lubricating and maintenance-free making them the first choice for the woodworking industry, as chips, dust and dirt do not settle on the bearings.


  • Chip-proof, dust-tight and impervious to dirt
  • Self-lubricating and maintenance-free
  • Ready-to-install energy supply systems
  • Fast assembly
  • Minimize machine downtime
