Lubrication-free bearings and reliable
cable protection for medical technology

Medical surroundings require components that fulfil the highest hygiene standards. Lubrication-free and corrosion-resistant plain bearings and energy supplies made of a special plastic are the right choice here. Plastic bearings are used in X-ray robots, laboratory devices, patient and treatment chairs, hospital beds and prostheses. Maintenance-free energy chains are used for the protection and guidance of cables, e.g. in operating theatre devices, rehabilitation systems and imaging diagnostic equipment. Our components are cleanroom-compatible, media-resistant and quiet - for the highest medical requirements.
