Industrial vehicles with high-performance polymers

Defects, repairs or maintenance of industrial vehicles are annoying and costly, both in terms of replacement parts but also expensive downtime. Robust and reliable components are therefore required to avoid downtime and lower unnecessary costs. Whether high loads at bearing locations with up to 250 MPa or very small bending radii for cables: igus® has virtually maintenance-free solutions with long service life for industrial vehicles such as forklifts, industrial tractors or driverless transport systems. In many applications, metallic bushings or recirculating ball bearing guides can be replaced by self-lubricating polymer plain bearings and linear guides! We would like to show you how to improve your technology and save costs at the same time.

Tested in the igus test laboratory for use in the real world

Tested for continuous load, media resistance and quiet operation

In the industry's largest test laboratory for plastics iglidur plain bearings, drylin linear technology and igubal coupling joints are put through their paces. The focus is on the examination of the tribological properties of different material pairings and the testing of assemblies. 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 tailored conditions.
