motion plastics for
film and camera technology

Curtain up, action – lubrication-free to a successful movie

People associate emotions and memories with photos and films. A record is kept of every moment deemed special. Something that initially involved a great deal of effort in a darkroom to develop film, has become a matter of course thanks to digitalisation and the related advances in technology. It is not only the cameras that have changed, the equipment involved is setting new technological standards. igus® products not only bring about technological improvements but also save costs. Whether "do-it-yourself" applications or professional constructions – the versatile drylin® linear guide system offers design freedom for every construction. Specifically in the construction of camera carriages, also referred to as sliders or dollies, technicians, product designers or DIY enthusiasts can make their wishes come true and combine individual components. Absolutely lubrication-free and virtually silent, thanks to the use of tribo-optimised polymers and aluminium are only two of the many arguments in favour of igus®. In addition, energy chains and chainflex® cables ensure increased dependability even at high speeds and tight bend radii.
