iglide® AX500 is a further development of iglide® A500, which was able to operate continuously for a long time. What is special about AX500 is that it is a conductive material. In addition, AX500 has an even lower coefficient of wear than its predecessor. The material was specially developed for the food industry and can therefore be used in contact with food products.
In the test, the wear of iglide® A500 and iglide® AX500 was investigated in a rotation test, p= 1 MPa, v= 0.3 m/s.

How do 12 grams of wine gum actually always get into these little bags? So-called dosing systems with highly sensitive mechanisms portion thousands of them in no time. And then it continues via chutes and belts until it reaches the box.
All these mechanisms and slides are subject to wear. iglide AX500 plain bearings help to make bearing points maintenance-free and durable.
