As part of its continuous material improvement programme, igus introduces the next-generation of its popular bearing material iglidur G. Offering double the performance, iglidur G1 features considerable improved properties over its predecessor but comes at almost the same price point.

iglidur® HSD350 – high-performance plastic for continuous use in steam11/10/2017

iglidur HSD350 plain bearing material clearly displays its advantages over its metallic counterparts in the food and medical industries. Able to withstand temperatures up to 180°C continuously and temporarily up to 210°C, the low cost material is the new all-rounder for use in hot steam sterilisation during autoclaving.

How linear systems from igus® can help the Fukushima clean-up team keep a safe distance05/10/2017

In March 2011 the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, located on the Pacific coast of Fukushima Prefecture in Japan, was severely damaged by the Tōhoku earthquake and ensuing tsunami. During the chain of events, three nuclear reactors were without suitable cooling and underwent a catastrophic meltdown. The clean-up and decommissioning has required thousands of scientists across the world to invent, develop and deliver new or improved techniques for nuclear debris removal and site remediation.

Video of the Week – How e-bone solves your personal cable management needs04/10/2017

As the motion plastics specialist, igus takes every step to develop innovative products and systems designed specifically for moving applications. igus engineers have taken that extra step by coming up with a simple, yet effective, product that solves a common cable management problem we all experience.

Video of The Week – How to create animatronics with robolink® D27/09/2017

We start this week’s video with a T-Rex that looks as if it is smiling, just about to say, “Boo!” However, if we were to strip away the skeletal pieces, underneath are modular parts from motion plastics specialist igus. The main body of the dinosaur is a robolink D articulated arm made with self-lubricating joints incorporating a gearbox with tribopolymer gear wheels and PRT tribopolymer round tables.

Video of The Week – How e-chains help stacking cranes move more efficiently22/09/2017

Automated stacking cranes (ASC) are rail-mounted cranes used for stacking and moving containers. Working in pairs, they pick up and set down containers from dedicated areas located at each end of the stack. Here very long travel distances can pose a challenge to cable management, especially when speed and efficiency are essential for these ATCs that operate around the clock.
