Wind power stations

igus® plastic products are used in wind turbine systems ranging from development to productions plants and commissioning.
These can be in the wind turbine itself, e.g. in the wind direction tracker, the tower control, the blade adjustment, or during plant production, e.g. for welding, painting, or during transport and assembly.
igus® products are particularly suitable for:

Safe torsional and circular motions

Cable protection against vibrations

Tight installation spaces, small radii

Maintenance- and lubricant-free bearings
