There are strict regulations for food hygiene and safety in all stages of a process. The free sample box from igus contains a selection of FDA-compliant plastics with certification to EU regulation 10/2011 suitable for use in food processing and packaging machines and equipment.
Whether in forming, filling, weighing and sealing machines, tubular bag machines, pharmaceutical packaging machines or strapping machines and dosing systems – igus offers machine components that work without any external lubrication, so product contamination is ruled out completely.
As igus motion plastics require no additional lubrication, they are also maintenance-free. Other benefits over their metallic counterparts include corrosion and chemical resistance, low humidity absorption and lightweight.
igus has produced a short video that shows the contents of an igus packaging sample box and the benefits these products offer; watch it at www.igus.co.uk/packagingwithdelta. To order a free igus sample box for the packaging industry, go to www.igus.co.uk/packagingsamplebox.
