Hydrostatic Bearings for Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems

Valve technology

Fluid valve technology

Each shut-off valve consists of an actuator and an actuator element (= valve). Their high chemical resistance and freedom from maintenance ensure our products are ideal for the use in valve technology.

Pump technology

Electric pumps

Whether coolant pump in the car or washing water pump in the dishwasher: iglide® plain bearings are resistant to chemicals and withstand high sliding speeds of up to 6,500rpm when used in the medium.

Meter systems

Water meters

There are meters for water and gas in every household. igus® components such as gears, plain bearings or coupling rods can be installed. With special materials, including for underwater use, we find solutions for every application.


Pneumatic cylinder

Whether gas spring, hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder: with iglide® guide rings and plain bearings, low-clearance piston guides can be achieved under almost all conditions.
