chainflex® fibre-optic cables are gradient fibre-optic cables for heavy-duty uses, with PUR outer jacket, resistant to oil and UV.
drylin® R linear bearings are based on extremely wear-resistant polymers specifically developed for linear technology. The dimensions are compatible with standard ball bearings.
iglidur® plain bearings are maintenance-free, RoHS compatible, lubricant-free, wear-resistant, and electrically conducting.
chainflex® control cables are cables for medium-duty uses. The highly-flexible cables are flame-retardant, and are protected by an PVC outer jacket.
Self-aligning spherical igubal® axial bearings are very easy to install units, which help to compensate alignment errors and to avoid edge loads.
igubal® rod end bearings absorb high loads in normal ambient temperatures, have excellent damping properties, and weigh only a fifth of conventional metallic bearing housings.
igubal® clevis joints are solid plastic clevis joints made from igumid G in accordance with DIN 71752, which can be combined with rod end bearings of installation size E as a counterpiece.
drylin® T linear guide systems were specially developed for applications in automation and handling systems. The design objective was a rugged linear guide for use in a wide range of - including extre...
Smallest bending radii, up to 30 million cycles tested in e-chains®, various jacket materials, various certifications and conformities: UL, CE, CSA, Desina
More sensitive applications with high cycle rates, speeds, and accelerations, including demanding environmental conditions, require tested and functionally reliable linear systems.
"igubal® angle joint are a cost-efficient connection and have many combination potentials.They have a low weight, maintenance-free and universally applicable. "
chainflex® cables are highly flexible cables for heavy duty uses. They are PVC and halogen-free, and are particularly resistant to oil and UV rays.

About igus® GmbH

The story of igus® begins on 15th October 1964 with Günter Blase in a double garage in Cologne-Mülheim. For the first twenty years, we worked as a supplier of complex technical polymer components. In 1983 Frank Blase starts our own product lines Energy Chain Systems® and polymer bearings as well as a network of sales engineers. Between 1985 and 2014, we grew from 40 to more than 2400 igus® employees, distributed the world over. We will continue to invest in expansion for the coming years. The opportunities are there thanks to modern materials!
