Application examples

igus® products have already been providing weight and cost reduction for many customer applications in the aviation industry.
Here are some examples:

Light aircraft Twister

Consistent application of igus® plain bearings in the aircraft design in fiber composite honeycomb-
sandwich construction.

Extendable brake flap

These igus® bearings look particularly suited for the specified application, as they are resistant to water, dirt and temperature and are also maintenance-free.

Extendable brake flap    

Airfoils in aircrafts

Here the challenge in the design was that the bearing of the group of components for the application in the measuring medium water had to be designed.

Airfoils in aircrafts    

Helicopter load system

A novel external load system for helicopters required a low weight, high reliability with simultaneous weather resistance and freedom from maintenance.
