Products to help the medical industry

Medical equipment manufacturers are constantly faced with developing products that are subjected to demanding requirements, such as small space envelopes and frequent cleaning cycles, which is why polymer specialist igus continuously invests in R&D to provide innovative solutions that help meet these needs. igus manufactures a wide range of self-lubricating and maintenance-free solutions for medical applications that support the demands of equipment reliably and safely. 

One such example is the xiros ball bearing, which are made of the cost-effective, yet high-performance xirodur B180 material. With its self-lubricating and media resistant properties, this material is also FDA compliant and therefore suitable for a wide range of medical applications up to 150ºC.

All igus’ products undergo extensive testing at the company’s laboratory in Germany to ensure that all materials are suitable for the specific industry requirements. igus will be exhibiting its xiros plastic ball bearings, as well as plain bearings, linear systems, energy chains and continuous flex cables systems suitable for use in medical applications, at this year’s Medtec (Stand H310) taking place on 3rd – 4th March at the ExCeL in London.
