Render failure-prone bearing points wear-resistant and maintenance-free

Machine components in utility vehicles must cope with harsh everyday life including moisture, risk of corrosion and often inappropriate handling. Not a problem for our products. They work according to the motto "cost down, tech 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, polymer plain bearings and linear guides ensure long-term functional reliability, particularly in failure-prone areas.

Advantages of the igus® solutions:

  • Cost-effective
  • Save installation space and weight
  • Maintenance-free for 24/7 use
  • Fast delivery
  • Easy assembly
  • Complete system or individual components from batch size 1
  • Service life calculation
  • Low noise and low vibration
