For highest precision and rigidity: new drylin linear bearings for shafts29-07-2021

Bearings made of iglidur W360 high-performance polymer ensure precise and easy movements in linear technology In order to be able to move linear bearings on shafts with high precision, igus has now developed the W360CM series. The new polymer linear bearings consist of an aluminium housing and a thin liner, which ensure smooth and quiet operation combined with high rigidity. The bearings have hardly any clearance and allow precise movements. Thanks to the use of iglidur W360 high-performance polymers, the user does not need external lubrication. The dimensions of the new series match metallic ball bushings, so that they can be easily converted 1:1.

Wound tribo plain bearings from igus reduce wear in heavy-duty applications22-07-2021

Lubrication-free and maintenance-free heavy-duty material iglidur TX2 shows a 3.5-fold improvement in wear behaviour in tests Especially for heavy-duty applications in the construction machinery or agricultural industry, igus now has the new tribo-material iglidur TX2 in its product range, which works without lubrication. Because even small excavators still need 50 litres of lubricant every year. The wound plain bearing bushings withstand very strong forces and increase wear resistance by a factor of 3.5 in load ranges with more than 100 MPa surface pressure.

Advancing developments: igus honoured as SPE Network Pioneer Member15-07-2021

igus now also offers fully harnessed cables for Single Pair Ethernet technology, especially for use in e-chains. Single Pair Ethernet is currently one of the biggest trend topics in the field of data communication in order to be able to communicate with even the smallest sensors. In addition to compact connectors, slim cables are also in demand. For this purpose, igus has developed a highly flexible Single Pair Ethernet cable especially for dynamic use in the energy chain, and now also offers it harnessed as a ready-to-connect and tested readycable. To further advance the research of the technology, igus joined the SPE Industrial Partner Network in 2019 and has now received the "PIONEER Member" award.

Co-operation for recycling expanded: igus partner Mura Technology collaborates with Dow08-07-2021

Global project for innovative plastics recycling continues to gain momentum The "Hydrothermal Plastic Recycling Solution" of startup Mura Technology promises the conversion of plastic back to oil in just 25 minutes. In order for entry into a sustainable circular economy to succeed, globally active industrial companies such as igus are supporting the development of this technology. Dow Chemical, the world's second largest chemical company, is now another partner on board.

From a garage to a global market leader: the couple who founded igus celebrate their 90th birthdays01-07-2021

Together, Günter and Margret Blase laid the foundation for a motion plastics breakthrough in industry in 1964 In 1964, they founded igus in their back yard garage in Cologne-Mülheim. In 2021, the internationally active company supplies customers all over the world with its lubrication-free and maintenance-free motion plastics. On the occasion of the founders' 90th birthday, igus is bringing that garage back to life.

iglidur I151 for FDA-compliant, detectable, wear-resistant parts in food technology24-06-2021

igus develops a blue, food-compatible tribo-filament for cost-effective 3D printing of special parts iglidur I151 is blue, prints easily, and has an optimal coefficient of friction and wear. The new tribo-filament is a refinement of the easy-to-machine igus iglidur I150 all-rounder filament. Because it is blue, it can be used to manufacture special parts that are optically detectable in the food industry. Food compatibility according to the FDA and to EU Regulation 10/2011 also qualifies the high-performance polymer for use in the food and cosmetics industries.

New triflex TRX energy supply system revolutionises 3D motion of robots17-06-2021

Telescopic triflex TRX energy chain from igus saves space on the robot and ensures a retraction length of up to 40 per cent To ensure that cables on industrial robots can be guided in motion safely, easily and compactly, igus has now developed the four-dimensional triflex TRX energy chain. The new design study replaces classic robot hose packages and retraction systems. Special feature: 40 per cent retraction length ensured by a unique telescopic mechanism inside the chain. This allows users to save space on the third axis of their robot, up to 83 per cent weight and high costs for retraction systems.

4K for 3D: igus offers multi-material printing for multifunctional components10-06-2021

The motion plastics specialist continues to expand its 3D printing capacities for durable, wear-resistant and complex components If a component is to have several properties, it usually has to be manufactured in several steps. But such production can quickly become cost-intensive for small quantities. It is precisely for this reason that igus now offers multi-material printing with up to four materials. This allows multifunctional and wear-resistant special parts to be manufactured quickly and cost-effectively in just one step. To this end, igus has further expanded its 3D printing capacities and its range of materials for the FDM process.

Printed, machined and now also injection moulded: wear-resistant polymer gears from igus03-06-2021

igus offers the cost-effective production of lubrication-free gears with in-house injection moulding Gears made of polymer ensure power transmission in countless applications - whether in fully automatic coffee machines or in actuators. Specifically for the production of wear-resistant and durable gears in high volumes, igus now offers production with injection moulding in addition to mechanical processing from bar stock and additive manufacturing. The user has the possibility to use the large variety of lubrication-free iglidur materials from igus.

A clean performance: igus wins the REINER! Award for modular cleanroom chain27-05-2021

Fraunhofer Purity Technology Award goes to the particle-free and compact e-skin flat energy supply system High-purity manufacturing environments ensure that electronics also function safely in everyday life. In order for manufacturers to produce in cleanrooms, particle-free machine elements are required. Every year, the Fraunhofer Institute honours the most innovative developments with the REINER! Award. The motion plastics specialist igus is very pleased with the 2nd place award for its e-skin flat energy supply chain. The alternative to the flat belt guide is compact, modular and has cleanroom class 1. The cables can be easily inserted into the chain using the zipper principle and can be quickly replaced in the event of maintenance.

Lightweight and lubrication-free iglidur plain bearings make catamarans fly20-05-2021

The iFLY15 sports sailboat won the silver manus award in 2019 – 582 entries for polymer plain bearing award 2021 Sailboats that lift themselves completely out of the water as if by magic.
