Improve technology and reduce costs

For years the igus® motto has been "plastics for longer life®". By this we mean the production of innovative plastic products which reduce maintenance work, achieve technical improvements, at the same time as reducing costs and increasing service life, everything delivered immediately from stock.

Our customers were able to improve the technology and reduce costs in more than 590 applications.
Some examples:

Longest travel in the world - no more downtimes

The longest travel with plastic energy chain  

The e-chain systems® today clearly contribute toward reliability, as system downtimes, for example through cable breaks, are reduced to zero.

Cables defy heat, sun, rain and snow

LED screen  

Previously used cables from a competitor had failed; since then the temperature-resistant chainflex® cables are used; the larger-than-life size LED screen in Dallas functions in any weather.

Rough environment, high speed

Special machine construction  

Even in particularly aggressive ambient conditions like in this high speed machining center, energy supply systems prove their reliability.

Costs saved, machine
availability increased

Beverages industry  

As iglidur® plain bearings have a long service life, and in addition need not be lubricated and costs only a fraction compared to conventional bearings, 90% of the costs could be saved.

More than Euro 10,000 saved each year

Fully automatic tire fitting lines  

The previously used bearings were blocked and the shafts used to break. The lubricant-free igubal® flange bearings used instead have been operating since May 2007 without failure. This saved Euro 2,440 in repair costs and Euro 8,400 in machine stoppages each year.

Trouble-free operation instead of shaft destruction

Concrete pipe cutter  

Due to the dirt accumulation in the ball bearings, the balls were blocked and the shafts were destroyed. The concrete cutting machine has now run for over three years entirely free of troubles despite the extremely heavy-duty operation.
