"Plastics for longer life" – With this as its motto, the igus GmbH is active worldwide as a leading manufacturer in the area of energy chains and polymer bearings. For customers, this means: technical improvements, reducing maintenance work and, at the same time, lowering costs. In order to achieve this, igus operates the largest test laboratory in the industry at its headquarters in Cologne. In an area of 2,750 m2, the idea of "motion plastics" – machine elements made of high-performance plastics that drive and move – becomes a reality that can be experienced directly. The reason is that everything is in motion here: More than two billion test cycles in more than 50 test set-ups are completed every year. The goal of all this is to provide our customers with the very best product for their individual requirements – configurable online and deliverable after 24 hours. In the area of predictive maintenance, igus develops intelligent solutions that issue a warning of failure in good time before an unscheduled and very cost-intensive shutdown occurs.
