Wind power industry

Severe temperature fluctuations, strong winds, turbulence and sand storms: wind turbines have to work reliably even when exposed to harsh weather conditions. igus® offers many solutions for wind turbines as well as for the associated equipment used in production, transport and installation. These can help you reduce downtime and costs. The components required include robust energy chains and highly flexible cables for torsional movements which are used in towers, azimuth systems and rotor blade adjustment. Lubrication-free wear-resistant bar stock and high-performance plain bearings are ideally suited for use in rotor blade adjustment and brake systems.

  • Suitable for small installation spaces, tight radii
  • Maintenance-free and lubrication-free bearings
  • Fail-safe cables with a 36-month guarantee
  • High static and dynamic load capacity
