In order to move doors, monitors or even panels, users rely on lateral installation of the linear systems. To enable the linear guides to absorb these lateral forces better, igus has now developed a new hybrid linear system. Two hybrid bearings provide low-friction adjustment with polymer rollers and tribo-polymer slide elements. Combined with an easily fit rail adapted to the new roller bearings, Treotham offers a cost-effective and visually appealing complete solution.
To save installation space in energy chains, some manufacturers combine the servo cable for power transmission with the measuring system cable for position data transmission to make a so-called hybrid cable.
