In the largest plastics test laboratory in the industry, iglidur plain bearings and drylin linear technology are put through their paces. Among other things, they are tested for resistance to media (e.g. cleaning media), and for continuous loading and low-noise operation. The results are entered into our tools to calculate service life and allow for precise predictions regarding their durability.
Upon request, igus carries out customer tests to check product use under completely customised conditions.
