Tech up & cost down
motion plastics for
utility vehicles

Render failure-prone bearing points wear-resistant and maintenance-free

Machine components in utility vehicles must cope with harsh everyday life including moisture, risk of corrosion and often inappropriate handling. Not a problem for our products. They work according to the motto "cost down, tech up". They are cost-effective, maintenance-free and do not require additional lubrication. Even in rain, snow and heat, they prove to be extremely robust and guarantee very long operating times. igus energy chains, cables, polymer plain bearings and linear guides ensure long-term functional reliability, particularly in failure-prone areas.

Benefits of igus products:

  • Cost-effective
  • Save installation space and weight
  • Maintenance-free for 24/7 use
  • Fast delivery and easy assembly
  • Complete system or individual components with no minimum order quantity
  • Predictable service life
  • Low noise and low vibration

Tested for real use in the test laboratory

Glance into the test laboratory for e-chains and chainflex cables:
At a total of 180 test stations, more than 10 billion test cycles are carried out per year with energy chains and igus cables.
Glance into the dry-tech test laboratory:
In the industry's largest test laboratory, iglidur plain bearings and drylin linear guides are tested regarding stress, wear and friction properties.
Our plain bearings are tested with the Front Loader Test Rig in heavy load test with maximum load. The test results can be transferred to other heavy-duty applications. Similar parameters can generally be found in all fields which are driven by a hydraulic cylinder.
