Self-lubricating products from igus® are approved in many maritime
applications, even under the toughest environment conditions. Seawater resistant
and rugged for shipbuilding in wind, rain or snow while remaining
lightweight and functional in the boat interior. e-chain systems® guide any cable reliably and safely during electrical
movements. iglide® plain bearings and drylin® linear guides use dry operation
and move sliding doors, hatches, steering systems, lift systems and all other
rotating and swiveling components quietly and completely maintenance free.
Always 100% self-lubricating.
igus® products also appeal as visible parts thanks to their elegant design and
availability in many finishes. igus® products have received the iF product
design award year after year.

Large variety, extensive standard product range
Customized solutions from prototype to production
Applications involving high cycle counts, speeds and accelerations or demanding environmental conditions require proven systems providing durable and reliable operation, especially when it comes to energy chains, cables as well as polymer slide bearings and linear systems. igus® conducts tests continuously in the in-house laboratory under real conditions. Every year, we conduct more than 2000 tests on e-chains® and cables, and over 5000 tests on slide bearings . The focus of our tests are tensile strengths and shear forces. Coefficients of friction, wear, driving forces and abrasion under extremely different conditions and speeds. Influence coefficients such as dirt, weathering, low temperature, or impacts and shocks are tested
