Metal-free xiros® guide roller made of polymer

Metal-free xiros® guide roller made of plastic (PVC)

Completely metal-free guide roller system

Are you looking for a suitable guide roller system for the chemical, medical or semiconductor industry that is completely metal-free? igus has the solution on hand with its completely assembled xiros guide roller consisting of a blue PVC tube with two xirodur B180 fixed flange ball bearings and glass balls. Due to the fact that our polymer ball bearings are free of external lubricants, the balls do not run against the resistance of the lubricant and therefore move more easily. This saves valuable drive force.

Extremely smooth running

With the xiros guide roller in black for visible parts we solve the problem of the high breakaway torque of rollers on labellers. In addition, our rollers in gravity conveyors (transport rollers) ensure the lowest possible rolling resistance. Metallic solutions reach their limits in terms of rolling resistance due to their lubrication. Our polymer ball bearings do not need any additional lubrication. They do not have to overcome the resistance of the lubricant and assure with smooth operation. This is the decisive advantage for our customers! Krones AG is already successfully using maintenance-free polymer ball bearings in its guide rollers, which are used as film guide rollers. Not only arefreedom from lubricants and maintenance important success factors, but also the saving of valuable assembly time. Our guide rollers arrive already pre-assembled and are delivered from one source.

Film deflection at Krones AG

"Decisive for us here is the smooth running of the ball bearings in the guide rollers. In the past we have used metallic bearings. However, this was not smooth enough, sometimes making the complete roll stop and the label band would slip over it." “
Sören Meissner, Design Engineer for Inspection and Labelling Technology at Krones AG
