Knife edge rollers for lubrication-free belt deflection

22 February 2013

igus UK has introduced new knife edge roller bearings that enable manufacturers in the food and beverage industry to increase process efficiencies. The iglidur tribo plastic bearings are reliable, and lubrication-free, and are suitable for conveyor systems.

igus knife edge rollers have been developed to the specific demands of the food and beverage industry, such as operating temperature and FDA-conformity.  As they are manufactured from igus’ wear-resistant iglidur plastic materials they require neither lubrication nor maintenance, and offer long service life.  

The thin igus knife edge rollers allow narrow deflection radii for optimal use of available space and a smooth transport of conveyed goods.  In addition, as the knife edges roll, rather than slide, they have a lower required driving power, which enables manufacturers to save energy.
