Lubrication-free cleanroom-compatible plastic solutions for medical equipment

Lubrication-free, cleanroom-compatible, media-resistant, corrosion-free, low noise – these are crucial criteria for medical equipment components. igus polymer bearings and energy chains exactly possess these properties. Lubrication-free bearings are used in X-ray robots, laboratory devices, patients' chairs, hospital beds and prostheses, among other things. Maintenance-free energy chains are used for the protection and guidance of cables in e.g. operating theatre devices, rehabilitation systems and imaging diagnostic equipment.
