Design maintenance-free machines with dry-running, long-lasting plastic components
Our durable iglide® bearing materials
, embedded with solid lubricants for dry-running operation, can withstand high edge loads and surface pressures up to 36,260 psi. They’re also resistant to dirt, dust and corrosion. iglide® bearings
work best with GKF shafting
, which helps extend their lifetimes by up to 40-60%. Additionally, we offer cable management solutions guaranteed to last up to 4 years. e-chain® cable carriers
are resistant to shock, vibration, corrosion and UV rays. They can withstand loads of up to 403 lbs/ft. chainflex® flexible cables
resist a range of dangerous conditions, such as extreme temperatures and oil, and can handle any type of motion, including horizontal and torsional. All igus® products are rigorously tested each year for quality inside our 41,000ft2 test lab
. The test results are added to the database behind our service life calculators, which you can use to predict the service life of our products based on the parameters of your application.
