Use high-performance polymers to render failure-prone bearing points wear-resistant and maintenance-free

Machine components in utility vehicles must cope with the harsh everyday life with moisture, risk of corrosion and often inappropriate handling. Not a problem for our products. They work according to the motto "cost down, life up". They are cost-effective, maintenance-free and do not require additional lubrication. Even in rain, snow and heat, they prove to be extremely robust and guarantee very long operating times. igus® energy chains,  cables, plastic plain bearings and linear guides ensure long-term functional reliability particularly in failure-prone areas.

Glimpse into the dry-tech® test laboratoryIn the industry's largest test laboratory iglide® plain bearings and drylin® linear guides are put to the acid test.

Plain bearing test in the front loader test rig

Our iglide® polymer plain bearings are tested with the in heavy load test with maximum load. The test results can be transferred to other heavy duty applications. Similar parameters can generally be found in all fields which are driven by a hydraulic cylinder.

igus® products successfully used in trucks, heavy transporters and so on.
