The story behind Igus part 2

| Medlemsnyhet | Bedrift ASI Automatikk AS

1965 - First product. Pierburg's problem part.

Günter Blase actually received an enquiry from Pierburg. The most complicated problem part was a valve cone for a carburettor. In 1965, no-one would have come up with the idea of using plastic to make this small metal component and, what's more, to do so with an injection-moulding machine. The manufacturing process was simply too complicated. For Günter Blase, this was no reason to lose heart. He went into his double garage and experimented until the first perfect plastic valve cone came out of the injection-moulding machine.
