LubX® C - High Performance Sliding Material

OVERVIEW
LubX® C - High Performance Sliding Material
With LubX® C, Röchling Engineering Plastics offers a new high performance material, which has outstanding dry-running properties at their disposal. It has been especially developed for applications in material handling and automation technologies. Compared with conventional sliding materials, conveying systems equipped with LubX® C need considerably less energy. The considerably lower coefficient of friction of LubX® C eliminates the possibility of the slip-stick effect (back sliding) almost completely and thus increases process stability.

Tribological systems:
In the development of LubX® C, great care has not only been taken to minimize the coefficient of friction of the sliding materials, but also to consider the tribological system of the sliding partners in an integrated manner. The individual motion and transport segments of different conveying systems were analyzed, and the relative movements of the elements and the frictional forces arising at the points of contact examined. These frictional forces have a decisive impact on the performance of the conveying system.

Energy efficiency:
With energy prices rising in the long term, lowering energy costs plays an increasingly more important role in the project planning of production, storage and logistic processes. When utilizing components with optimized sliding properties in conveying processes, the conveying power required – and thus the energy applied – may be reduced to a minimum.
