Range of services

Take me directly to Our products

igus® products were designed to route and supply all types of moving parts of machinery and equipment. Improve technology and lower costs are the core of every igus® product.

Most of our developers succeed in both, but at least you must have a clear advantage as our customer: An effective cost reduction or increase of service life or technical improvements.

That is what we call “plastics for longer life®” – increasing service life, reducing costs. igus® conducts tests continuously in the in-house laboratory under real conditions.

Over 15,000 tests are performed every year.

Predictable service life – Free from lubrication

Managing without lubrication is the dream of every design engineer. With the igus® polymer plain bearings, spherical bearings, ball bearings and linear bearings, this wish becomes a reality. Through decades of research, a precise calculation of the lifetime of igus® polymer plain bearings is possible.

A large range of different sizes makes the polymer bearing applicable almost anywhere. Their service life is predictable online, and all products can be configured online.

The dry-running igus® polymer bearings save money, increase machine reliability and also protect the environment.

The umbilical cord for your automation

The energy chains® are like umbilical cords of modern machines. They secure the permanent supply of energy, data and media and are constantly in motion. Our task is to offer you all the components required for it – e-chains®, chainflex® cables and all accessories – as a complete system and to ensure reliable operation.
