Self-lubricating and maintenance-free polymer-products in furniture making

igus® polymer products have already proved themselves for years due to the high mechanical strength in many industrial sectors. Plain bearings and energy supply systems made of plastic are suitable particularly in applications dependent on a clean and lubrication-free movement.

Clean finish and weight reduction are often an "obligatory detail" in the furniture and furnishing sector. igus® products are suitable for use, for example, in smooth table pull-outs, as a tidy bearing for rotating and pivoting movements, elegant and secure cable feeds, fine-shaped linear guides for flexible sofa components, variable seat or individual height adjustments.
