Products for aviation and aerospace

motion plastics - as above the clouds, every gram counts

The aerospace industry consists of many different areas: the aircraft itself (e.g. airplane, helicopter or drone/UAV), the airport surroundings including ground support (GSE) as well as space technology. Here, the various segments have different requirements. Low weight, long service life, quiet operation and great robustness are among the most important of those requirements, and our motion plastics meet them. They also comply with the FAR 25.853 fire protection standard. Our wide range of products offers cost-effective solutions in all segments – always in keeping with our motto: Tech up and Cost down.

Areas of use

Success stories

De-icing and washing system from MSG Production AS

e-chains in use at -40 degrees

To reduce time, delays and therefore costs of de-icing and washing aircraft, MSG Production AS developed a fully automated all-in-one concept. The Norwegian company relies entirely on the advantages of motion plastics from igus: E2 & E4 series energy chains ensure reliable cable guidance, and igubal pillow block bearings provide the mounting of the cleaning nozzles.
GESTRA radar system

Energy supply in GESTRA radar system

GESTRA is a radar-based system developed by the Fraunhofer institute that is used to search for and map space debris. The development partner AlpinaTec GmbH relies on compact e-chain systems from igus for the high-precision three-axis positioning system. They ensure a reliable energy supply and the smooth guidance of a wide variety of media cables in a confined space.
Overview of aerospace applications

...and many further success stories

In this selection of more than 40 application examples, you can find out how our energy chains and bearing products are used in aviation and aerospace, where they fulfil different requirements. Here, it was necessary to overcome challenges such as high loads, extreme temperature differences, confined spaces or specifications requiring low weight.
