Low vibration, low noise and low wear
Smartphones are booming everywhere. The heart of mobile power packs are printed circuit boards or cards. The high-precision machining process is performed reliably by means of sophisticated positioning systems. Industrially harnessed E6 series energy supply systems ensure the required smoothness, low vibration and low abrasion in the long-term.

Insights from the igus® lab

Extremely low noise: Series E6.1 from 32 db (A) in motion
The noise level of machines has become increasingly important in many industries. e-chains® are also selected taking this aspect into account. igus® has tested which e-chains® from the E6.29 and E61.29 series are the most suitable for noise-sensitive applications.

How does friction change over time?
In the igus® laboratories it was found that the friction hardly change over time for iglidur® plain bearings. Metallic rolled bearings were tested for comparison. Due to the thin gliding layer on the surface of the metal bearings, friction and wear increase as soon as it is worn.
