The story behind Igus part 11

| Medlemsnyhet | Bedrift ASI Automatikk AS

2012 - Second factory extension. The igus factory in Porz-Lind in Cologne gets bigger once again.

As  Günter Blase had already expected this in 1994. He had probably hoped for this at least. igus GmbH continues to grow and needs more space again. Fortunately, this was already foreseen in the planning phase and the production areas and desk workstations shifted once more within the four walls in Spicher Strasse. The forward-looking architecture of Sir Nicholas Grimshaw makes it possible.

2014 - iglidur on tour.

A Smart car with 56 iglidur plain bearings goes on a world tour.
On the 30th anniversary of iglidur, a Smart car was fitted out with iglidur plain bearings and sent on a journey all around the world. The small car travelled through 30 countries in 14 months. With this campaign, igus demonstrated the many possible uses of its polymer plain bearings and the special advantages of the iglidur materials all over the world.


2016 - 3D printing service.

igus prints wear-resistant parts made of high-performance polymers.
Filaments with an up to 50-times greater wear resistance, 3D-printed parts that can cope with just as many movements as injection-moulded parts – this was the promise with which igus started its 3D printing service. SLS powder, printed injection-moulding tools and free online services were also offered by the company. The possibility of calculating the service life of the parts online is unique worldwide. igus keeps its promise.

2016 - smart plastics.

Predictive maintenance with high-performance polymers.
Components from igus are wear-resistant and always last longer in applications, as a result of which there is less maintenance work for entrepreneurs to do. With its smart plastics, igus introduces sensors and transmission systems that detect wear in good time and make planned replacement possible by emitting a corresponding signal. This rules out the possibility of a worst-case scenario, namely damage to or failure of the machinery. This saves time, trouble and money. And it increases productivity.

2019 - RBTX lean robotix.

Platform for users and suppliers of low-cost robotics components.
igus launches a platform that brings together users and suppliers of low-cost robotics components quickly and easily. Users can put together a low-cost robotics solution that matches their requirements and budget. Suppliers of robotics components can present their products to a larger public in a new marketplace.
