igus® has been manufacturing engineered plastics for more than 40 years, and develops each of the materials and all technology behind its products. Committed to using its innovative polymer materials to develop products that provide creative solutions and exceed customer expectations while delivering fast, accurate service, igus®’ polymer blends are used throughout its range of product lines of cable carriers, plastic bushings, spherical bearings, and linear bearings, guides, and slide tables. With constant advancement and technological breakthroughs, igus® is continually expanding its range of materials, and performs rigorous testing to ensure every product meets and exceeds industry standards.
igus® engineers develop more than 100 new polymer compounds each year for use in its iglide® bearings. Each of these materials is tested extensively in the igus® lab in Cologne, Germany. More than 7,000 tests are conducted on each material to analyze tribological properties, wear resistance, and more, and all results are placed into an extensive material database. Using this data, igus® engineers can offer a precise prediction of the lifetime for an iglide® bearing in nearly any given application.
igus® Energy Chain Systems® cable carries are available with the optimal selection of all components, including cables, interior separators, crossbars and guide troughs. igus® also offers its own line of Chainflex® continuous-flexing cables, as well as ReadyChain®: a completely pre-harnessed cable carrier system. Applications where igus® cable carrier systems are proven include steel plants, mining and crane industries, machine tools, and offshore applications. Even cleanroom and FDA approved, and high temperature resistant materials are available for exceptionally demanding applications.
