Committed to using its innovative polymer materials to develop products that provide creative solutions and exceed customer expectations while delivering fast, accurate service, igus’ polymer blends are used throughout its range of product lines of cable carriers, plastic bushings, spherical bearings, and linear bearings, guides, and slide tables. With constant advancement and technological breakthroughs, igus is continually expanding its range of materials, and performs rigorous testing to ensure every product meets and exceeds industry standards.
igus engineers develop more than 100 new polymer compounds each year for use in its self lubricating linear guide systems and bearings. Each of these materials is tested extensively in the igus lab in Cologne, Germany. More than 10,000 tests are conducted on each material to analyze tribological properties, wear resistance, and more, and all results are placed into an extensive material database. Using this data, igus engineers can off er a precise prediction of the lifetime for bearings and linear systems in nearly any given application.
