2nd manus® competition for plastic plain bearing applications

Never before have we received so many applications - thanks a lot to all participants!

On 13 April 2005, the winners of the 2nd manus® competition for plastic plain bearing applications were announced at the igus® stand at the Hanover Messe. Compared to the 1st manus® in 2003, this time there were thrice as many applications, including some high-profile ones.
