Adjustments

Bearings, cable carriers, lead screw
assemblies, etc. for car seat adjustments

Crucial design requirements in modern car seat adjustments include noise minimization, weight reduction, and vibration damping. Seating systems should be quietly adjustable and lightweight, with the greatest possible comfort and safety. igus® products, such as iglide® bearings, drylin® lead screws & nuts, and e-chain®, are technically and economically advantageous in the design of car seat adjustments.

Inside our 41,000ft2 test lab in Cologne, Germany, igus® engineers run 12,000 bearing tests a year, optimizing our materials for high-speed rotational and linear movements as well as harsh environmental conditions. Due to this extensive testing, iglide® bearings are proven to last 8 times longer than metal components.
