Under the brand name xiros, igus has developed maintenance-free, lubrication-free polymer ball bearings for the food and beverage industry.
Wherever food is involved, hygiene is at the top of the agenda. Production facilities should therefore be produced according to the principles of hygiene design. Cables, connectors and cable glands play an important role in the process.
Founded by Mikael Paltoft in 1992, Treotham began as a very small business selling just chains and accessories out of Mikael's home garage.
Igus has designed the world's first plastic energy chain according to hygienic design guidelines.
Treotham Automation has introduced a high-performance plastic material for continuous steam exposure. Iglide HSD350 material from igus offers an affordable alternative to metallic options for use in steam sterilisation and autoclaving.
The Pflitsch blueglobe Clean Plus is the first cable gland to be certified to the high EHEDG standard and given BGN approval, making it suitable for food, pharmaceutical, chemical and clean room applications.
Treotham has recently partnered up with Pflitsch to bring Australia and New Zealand extremely high quality and reliable cable glands made in Germany.
The igus e-skin and e-shell offer new options for affordable and flexible cable guiding, to make moving energy easier.
