igus is introducing the guidelite plus – an all-plastic guide trough system developed specifically for use in chemically corrosive environments, such as those found in galvanising plants and fertiliser production and handling facilities.
The robust, igumid plastic – which is already a tried and tested igus energy chain material – is significantly cheaper than high-grade stainless steel, which is the traditional material of choice in these aggressive environments.
In addition to its chemical and corrosion resistance qualities, the guidelite plus is lighter than metal guide troughs and features a modular click-to-fit design that is quick and easy to assemble – thereby helping plant and machine builders reduce installation costs significantly.
guidelite plus is also a lighter and more cost-effective alternative to steel or aluminium guide troughs, particularly in applications where slow moving energy chains run for long travels.
