Repairing industrial vehicles is both time-consuming and expensive. Therefore, durable and reliable vehicle components are required in order to avoid downtime and unnecessary costs. igus® provides solutions ranging from cables with small bending radii, to bearings that endure loads of up to 36,000 psi. The maintenance-free and long-lasting igus® products can be found in forklifts, industrial tractors or driverless transport systems. Self-lubricating polymer bearings and linear guides from igus® can replace metallic bushings or recirculating ball bearing guides in many applications. Making the switch will enhance your technology and save costs.

Still GmbH, a company that develops order pickers, uses chainflex® cables with guide rollers at a stroke height of 39 feet. The cables withstand very small bend radii and are extremely resistant to wear, thus preventing “corkscrews.”
Lubricated bronze bearings were originally used in this lifting machine, causing dirt accumulation and failure. These bronze bearings were replaced with maintenance-free iglide® bearings designed for high loads, which have decreased maintenance costs and downtimes.
In the Lochmann Cabine S.R.L. forklift, traditionally-used guides were used, which were prone to shocks, vibrations and jams caused by dirt adherence. As a fix, drylin® linear guides were installed into the sliding doors. The drylin® guides successfully resisted shocks, vibrations and dirt.
The energy chain product line provides secure cable guidance. The chains are used in seating systems, where they ensure long service life even in the smallest installation spaces.
Special chainflex® cables were developed for transmitting data to cameras and monitors in industrial vehicles. The cables are oil-resistant, flame-retardant and can handle tensile strengths of 629 pounds.
iglidur® bar stock eliminate the need for lubrication of the fork tine suspension. As their material has excellent coefficients of friction, fork tines can be moved without problems. Downtimes due to lubrication and costs for lubricants are thus eliminated.
