At igus, everything comes from a one source. From bearing technology to cables and energy supply systems, we manufacture our products ourselves. We also assemble products at our headquarters in Cologne and, depending on the product category, in branch offices. That is why cables harnessed with connectors, or energy chains equipped with cables can arrive on site in no time. We started expanding our capacities at our main production site in Cologne at an early stage to be able to deliver plain and linear bearings, energy chains and highly flexible cables sold by the metre at any time.
We build our injection-moulding tools in our own tool shop. Development, production, sampling - we are responsible for all stages of tool technology. And short distances require less time. Depending on the order volume, a tool can also be produced within short time as print2mold via 3D printing from our proven high-performance polymers. We can also carry out quick tool repairs and maintenance, thus ensuring the availability of our products.
If time is getting short: FastLine provides you with injection-moulded plain bearings and thrust washers in no more than seven days. You can easily find out whether injection moulding or a different manufacturing method is worthwhile for you in the iglidur plain bearings designer: the online tool offers a price comparison of all igus manufacturing methods and compares them with our standard product range. That way, you can always keep an eye on the best price.
