Tech up, cost down. It's our job.

Suitable for small installation spaces or large ones. No minimum order quantity so from 1 to million. igus manages the balancing act. Our customers have their individual needs and requirements and these are all equally as important. 

Due to many applications, ideas and designs, we are continually faced with the same challenge: what does the solution look like? How can we deal with the problem?

As a result, we work together to create new products every year - solutions to problems. Many of them make it beyond the status of an individual customer project into volume production. This is the igus spring news. In 2022, a lot of things are changing worldwide and many customers are looking for alternatives. 

Are you looking for an alternative? – We will be happy to provide you with free expert advice without obligation!

CO2 footprint in the online shop

Available for five standard materials

In more and more areas, CO₂ emissions have to be determined and reduced. We will support you in this. The company igus works hard to not only measure the CO₂ footprint of every component sold and make it transparent for you, but also to reduce it. As a first step, we show the CO₂ footprint of each plain bearing of our best-selling materials in our web shop.
