All igus® products undergo rigorous and extensive testing within the company's in-house laboratory. These tests resemble challenging working conditions to ensure the best possible product is put forward. This proven reliability not only means that there is no need for costly, unscheduled maintenance – machine downtime is reduced, increasing productivity and overall service life.

Polymer Bearings
iglidur® polymer plain bearings from igus® do not require oil or grease, therefore are maintenance-free. More and more industries are switching to plastic plain bearings due to their dry-running nature. Clean, grease-free plastic plain bearings are often selected over traditional metal plain bearings because dirt and debris build up is totally eliminated, reducing maintenance runs.

Energy Chains
igus® energy chains® and energy chain systems® are like the umbilical cords of modern machines. Designed to guide and protect moving cables in dynamic applications, they help to increase service life. Also, the modular design format makes installation processes quick and easy.

Highly Flexible Cables
Totally reliable chainflex® cables from igus® are designed for continuous flexing in e-chains®. They’re adverse to corkscrewing, loose jackets and fraying, due to their specially bundled core elements and gusset filled extruded jackets. The cables are suitable for a vast range of industries and ensure production processes and energy supply is trouble free.
