igus’ stainless steel xiros roller features electrostatic dissipation.
igus expanded its xiros guide roller line to include a dissipative variant made of stainless steel – a kind of rotating lightning conductor that ensures a controlled electrostatic discharge. These rollers are available in stock sizes 608, 6000, and 6001 with a stainless steel tube length of 100 to 1,000 millimeters. The variant’s tube and rolling bearing balls are made of stainless steel. The inner and outer rings are made of the company’s antistatic high-performance plastic, xiros F180. Suitable in temperature ranges from -40°C and +80°C and for contact with food, the bearings don’t require lubricants that have an insulating effect.
