| Medlemsnyhet | Bedrift ASI Automatikk AS

1983 - First plain bearing material. iglidur G was the first material that he used to make plain bearings with the injection-moulding method. And in 1985 Igus travel across the pond and establish in the USA.

Günter Blase is known for his inquiring mind and pioneering spirit. It was therefore only a matter of time until he developed his own materials for his plain bearings instead of relying on material from suppliers. iglidur G was the first material that he used to make plain bearings with the injection-moulding method. The iglidur G plain bearing, also called "the classic all-rounder" at igus, is still part of the company's product range today. What makes it stand out is its versatile usability as like all the company's plain bearings, it is lubrication and maintenance-free.

1985 - Branch established in the USA. igus GmbH travels across the pond.


By this time, Frank Blase had joined the company and saw an opportunity to achieve success in the USA faster with the range of plain bearings. Two additional materials, iglidur X and iglidur M250, were developed and assigned the necessary dimensions in inches. The start in Rhode Island however was more than sluggish. In 1986, younger brother Carsten Blase took over and Frank returned to Germany. Today, igus USA is one of the largest of the 35 subsidiaries that exist abroad.
