Applications with a high number of cycles, high speeds and accelerations in demanding environmental conditions require testing to ensure correct functioning, especially for energy chains and cables, as well as polymer plain bearings and linear systems. igus® conducts tests continuously in the in-house laboratory under real conditions. Every year, more than 2000 tests are conducted on e-chains® and cables, and over 5000 tests on plain bearings. The focus of our tests are tensile strengths and shear forces. Friction values, wear rates, drive forces and abrasion under all possible conditions at diverse speeds. Influence coefficients such as dirt, weathering, low temperature, or impacts and shocks are tested.
Our laboratory is also at your disposal. If we don’t have data for your type of application, we can conduct a test representative of your requirements. Please consult igus®.
Because of current order peaks our lead-time will increase temporarily to 6-12 working days for e-chain systems®. We are working intensively on a fast improvement.
