Igus solutions for the “e-Revolution”
40 PERCENT LOWER COSTS, 80 PERCENT LESS WEIGHT AND 100 PERCENT LESS MAINTENANCE – FIT AND FORGET
The “e- Revolution” is coming, and quick. In recent years there has been a strong drive for the car, the pushbike and other forms of “motion- devices” to be converted to electric for many reasons; for some it’s about the environment, for others it’s about economising and the common factor between all things electric are their energy use, or power consumption.
Lowering the power consumption in electric vehicles, for example, equates to higher speeds, longer range, smaller batteries and more. What lower power consumption means for machines in other industries is lower electricity costs and this is only one of the advantages of upgrading to IGUS polymer bearings. Not only are they 100 percent maintenance free and lower cost, they are also 80 percent lighter than their archaic brass bush counterparts.
There really is no reason why you shouldn’t switch out your ancient 1800’s tech brass bushes for the modern IGUS polymer self-lubricating bush!
Automation Equipment (N. Z) Ltd is the proud NZ distributor of the IGUS bearing range and we are able to step you through the process of upgrading your bearings, whatever your machine might be. There are over 50 different bearing materials in numerous sizes so there is bound to be one that fits your requirement.
Lighter bearings = lower power consumption = cost savings = higher operating profit.
