Using public transport is an important contribution to the protection of our environment. To make train trips more attractive for passengers, an intact rail network and working trains have to be the rule, not the exception. Here, durable components are required that fulfil high quality requirements, to which the fire protection standards EN 45545 or NFPA 130 belong. Our motion plastics meet these demands, and are furthermore lubrication-free, which minimises maintenance effort and costs. This factor is not insignificant if train trips are to be attractive in terms of price too.
This year, we are launching 168 innovations. Industry Manager Thorsten Mersch will present the top news in less than two minutes. For example, the cost-effective heavy-duty fabric bushings iglidur TX2:
▲ Tech up: 25% less wear, 30% longer service life due to thread asymmetry and 88% lower weight
▼ Cost down: 50.9% more cost-effective compared to metal lead screw nuts
Trying things out made easy: with the igus corner, you always have the most recent motion plastics suited to your individual industry sector at hand.
We will bring the display to you, assemble it upon request and fill the compartments with the products of your choice. Or you can set it up yourself. As a permanent exhibition or for a limited period of time.
The sample box contains iglidur bar stock, a dryspin lead screw, iglidur plain bearings, a self-adjusting igubal bearing, chainflex cables and an e-chain.
The sample box for goods transport contains different iglidur plain bearings, a self-adjusting igubal bearing, a chainflex thrust washer and iglidur bar stock.
All products are checked in the igus test laboratory, the largest in the industry, under real-life conditions with regard to wear and durability. This enables the precise determination of the service life of the products.
Upon request, igus carries out customer tests so as to check the use of the products under completely unique conditions.
