Digital - for employees and customers

We see digitisation as a great opportunity, but also as a continuous process that takes place both internally in our teams and on the customer side. We want to do pioneering work in the area of our products, our sales and marketing activities, and the working lives of our employees. Fresh impulses, such as the Metaverse, give us the opportunity to break new ground and explore. Discover our digital offers and possibilities now:
 

Work at igus – digital and dynamic

We are an agile industrial company. Modern tools, software, and cloud-based services are the basis for our success, from production to sales to marketing and e-commerce. In process analysis and optimisation, we use data analytics and process mining. Based on the DevOps concept, we develop large parts of our software landscape and digital services, such as our product-related online tools, ourselves. Scrum and kanban are tried and tested methods – in everyday life, but also in the overarching project work of the various specialist and corporate departments. Our iCollaboration is an enterprise platform based on various apps that enables us to share content with all our branches worldwide, provide information, and simplify collaboration with blogs, chat, whiteboards, planners, and much more.

Home office at igus

Work from Home

Home office is an integral part of our working environment. Modern software and hardware enable everyone to work easily and professionally from home, and our workforce is networked with Microsoft Teams. We see mobile work as a useful addition to the exchange of ideas on the igus campus, and we have not yet been able to connect our systems for just a joint lunch in our canteen and the kitchens of those working at home. As with many other companies, it was the first phase of the Corona pandemic that prompted us to digitalise and modernise our working environments faster. For our efforts at reaching and supporting our employees and customers during this time, the F.A.Z. Institute recognised us as an "exemplary company in the crisis" in 2021.  

Digital and exemplary – Recognition for being a forward-looking company



Digital products - What do we offer our customers?


Our customer-level innovations range from digital tools such as online configurators to digital business models such as online platforms to smart plastics – digitally enhanced products equipped with sensors for generating, exchanging, and evaluating data. These products are an important building block for predictive maintenance solutions. We practice "failing fast" during development and use Build-Measure-Learn to continuously improve our results. Below are some examples of our digital services and solutions.

The physical-virtual trade show IMPS Experience the physical-virtual trade show IMPS online

Experience the movement of tomorrow virtually with the IMPS

In times of pandemic and home office, customer contacts became more impersonal and digital. With the IMPS (igus motion plastics show) we have created an opportunity to present our products to customers as closely and as realistically as possible. Anyone interested can discover the 400m² physical-virtual trade show stand online. On your own or during a guided tour together with igus experts live at the trade show stand.

smart plastics: our forward-looking products

Intelligent energy chains, cables, plain and slewing ring bearings, and linear guides set new standards in maintenance and repair. These smart plastics products recognize your maintenance needs, make forecasts, and thus avoid system or production downtime. Sensors record component condition and transmit the data. For example, e-chains can be monitored for push/pull forces during operation and serviced before a fault occurs.

igumania: discover igus products in a playful way

igumania: Discover igus products with the motion plastics game

Our world of motion plastics continues to grow. igumania was finally born from the idea of explaining our products and their advantages to customers in a playful way. The idle game takes place entirely in a fictional Mars Rover factory. The aim is, as a newly promoted production manager, to gradually upgrade production with the help of motion plastics, to make the system less maintenance-prone and to reduce downtimes.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality: projecting virtual models into reality

In future, you will be able to plan and visualise new products, systems and machines even better - thanks to augmented reality. With AR, you project a virtual model of your application into the real world and can then check it for various aspects: feasibility, product integration, location or even dimensions. This ensures maximum transparency and safety in your planning and speeds up the design process.
