Temperature-resistant ... chip-proof ... quick assembly ... long service life

Accuracy plays a vital role in the glass industry, as cutting and trimming to size to meet individual customer requirements, involves high-precision work. Cutting glass to size for tables, mirrors or doors often leaves sharp edges. A grinding and polishing process finishes the edge to minimize the risk of injury. From surface, joining or forming technology through to handling: igus® always has ideal solutions at hand for individual applications in the glass industry using its e-chain systems®, chainflex cables for movement and plain bearings made of tribologically optimised high-performance polymers. The safe and reliable energy supply also ensures long-term cost savings by reducing installation and maintenance times.
