Industrial vehicle downtimes due to defects, repairs, or maintenance are annoying and costly and prevent the machines from being used. So robust, reliable components are needed to avoid downtime and reduce unnecessary costs. High loads at bearing points (up to 250MPa) or very small bending radii for cables: We have virtually maintenance-free solutions with long service life for industrial vehicles such as forklifts, industrial tractors, and automatic guided vehicles. In many applications, such elements as metallic bushings or recirculating ball bearing guides can be replaced with self-lubricating polymer plain bearings and linear guides! We would be happy to show you how to improve your technology while cutting costs.

Hydraulic valve connection: alignment error compensation with igubal double joints5
Pedal mechanism: clearance-free pre-loaded bearings with iglidur JVSM6
Armrest adjustment: easy dry operation with drylin W linear guides7
In the industry's largest test laboratory for plastics, iglidur plain bearings, drylin linear technology, and igubal coupling joints are put through their paces. The focus is on testing assemblies and examining the tribological properties of different material combinations. The results are incorporated into our service life calculation tools and allow exact durability predictions.
Upon request, igus carries out customer tests to check product use under specific conditions.
