Exceptionally smooth running and outstanding durability
In many fields, high-performance plastics put metal in the shade when it comes to meeting the requirements for components’ load-bearing capacity and durability. Building on its applications-based know-how and sophisticated designs, faigle has developed a new generation of support and guiding wheels and other components for shuttle systems.
In intralogistics, wheel reliability is a leading priority. Stoppages cost money, so a proven track record and long service life are all the more important. faigle wheels keep on rolling for up to 15 years, clocking up more than 65,000km along the way.
A brief history
Humans have been moving objects around and overcoming logistical challenges since the year dot. Just think of the impressive engineering feats achieved by the ancient Egyptians dragging blocks of granite to build the pyramids or the inhabitants of Easter Island transporting their huge moai statues. Tasks like these became much easier with the invention of the wheel. Another major logistical achievement followed around 1500 with the introduction of the first postal services.
