This is where we test our products at extreme temperatures, high dirt exposure or enormous forces. More than 15,000 tests, ranging from noise measurements to chip-proof testing or cable testing in oil, as well as linear guides in a chip solution.
Applications with a high number of cycles, high speeds and accelerations in demanding environmental conditions require testing to ensure correct functioning, especially for energy chains and cables, as well as polymer plain bearings and linear systems. igus® conducts tests continuously in the in-house laboratory under real conditions. Every year, more than 4000 tests are conducted on e-chains® and cables, and over 10000 tests on plain bearings. The focus of our tests are tensile strengths and shear forces. Coefficients of friction, wear, driving forces and abrasion under extremely different conditions and speeds. Influence coefficients such as dirt, weathering, low temperature, or impacts and shocks are tested.
