Linear solutions for automated guided vehicles

AGV with iglidur® plain bearings in the scissor-type lift

AGV scissor lift, maintenance-free

iglidur® plain bearings can be deployed, for example, in the scissor lifts of automated guided vehicles. The polymer plain bearings contain solid lubricants, making the use of additional lubrication unnecessary. This can reduce the amount of maintenance required. 

FTS with dryspin lead screw

Lifting unit can be adjusted easily

dryspin® lead screws make it especially easy to simply and quietly adjust lifting units on driverless transport systems. The options available include diverse lead screw materials such as lead screws made of high-performance polymers.

iglidur® PRT slewing ring bearings in a rotary unit

Providing torsional rigidity and modularity

iglidur® PRT slewing ring bearings are used in the rotary unit in driverless transport systems. There, these bearings ensure torsional rigidity and modularity. In addition, they are characterised by their maintenance-free, compact and lightweight features.

Linear solutions for automated guided vehicles: drylin® ZLW

High dependability and freedom from maintenance are of great importance in automated transport vehicles because flexibility and operational efficiency are paramount for such systems that are often deployed in 24/7 operation. Maintenance-free igus® solutions not only reduce costs both in procurement and in operation but also increase plant availability, as is the case with this application at Knapp.
