igus Slide Features & Benefits
igus linear slides operate on glider pads so they glide instead of roll.
Because igus sliders are designed for dry running they aren’t exposed to grease and oil, which means they are dirt & dust resistant and maintenance-free – making igus slides a cost-effective option.
igus linear slides are made using high-performance polymers (motion plastics) and can be adapted for a diverse range of applications.
Other benefits of igus slides include:
- Almost inaudible during operations
- No minimum stroke length restrictions
- Predictable service life
- The configuration is simple and done online which can save up to 40% on custom system configuration costs (compared to recirculating ball bearing systems).
