Conditions in agriculture are rough and temperamental. Therefore, it is even more important for components to work reliably and withstand the daily conditions. Our technical products can do exactly that: low temperatures, heat, ice and dirt simply do not faze them, as with their high-performance polymers and without additional lubrication, they have been designed especially for this.
Maintenance-free polymer plain bearings can be used with heavy-duty applications in soil cultivating machines or front loaders. drylin linear systems can adjust monitors in tractor cabins. Energy chains and chainflex cables are ideal for supplying field spraying systems with energy and liquids. Application options are versatile.

▲ Tech up
No sliding contacts, all media in a single system
70% more cost-effective than a comparable steel guide trough
▲ Tech up
Intelligent plain bearings now as standard range
Early information prevents the shaft from damage
▲ Tech up
Five times higher breaking strength than igumid G
No minimum order quantity, no tool costs for igus standard dimensions
One of the most common causes of failure and downtime in agricultural machinery lies in the wear of the shafts and bearings. You can learn in our white paper how you can avoid this problem with our lubrication-free plain bearings and increase the service life of both components.

High mechanical stability
Compensation of misalignment and deflections
Longer service life
igus has been successfully collaborating with Lemken since 2008. Various Lemken machines are equipped with igus plain bearings, among them the cultivator Karat 9. In the overload elements, the metal bearing points previously used had to be lubricated up to one hour per day to prevent wear and corrosion. By switching to lubrication-free polymer plain bearings, the farmer saves valuable time. Furthermore, the dirt resistance and stability of the plain bearings increase service life and dependability.
Maintenance-free and resistant to dust and dirt, the iglidur G plain bearings are used in hinges, locking systems and hydraulic cylinders of bale trimming machines from Optimal-Vertrieb Opitz. They replace red brass solutions, that were produced in-house and required both a relatively large installation space and lubricants that polluted the environment. The new polymer bearings need no lubrication and withstand all edge loads without problems.

Due to their FDA-conformity, resistance to dirt, non-corroding qualities and absence of a need for maintenance igus products are able to satisfy the high requirements placed on them in the area of vertical agriculture. Our Low Cost Automation systems enable cost-effective farming throughout the year and a fast return on investment.
igus replacement parts designed for guidance, transfer and bearing support on telescopic elevated work platforms, such as energy chains and cables as well as plastic plain bearings, linear bearings or sliding plates meet the stringent requirements for components that are subjected to continuous stress in outdoor applications.
