Examples of offers to our customers

Manufactured with injection moulding: highest convenience and safety in knee joint prostheses

Only materials and components that can be relied upon are used for prostheses. Especially for leg prostheses, it is important that the user can trust his prosthesis when he is running and standing with it. Therefore, Otto Bock SE & Co. KGaA, the world market leader in technical orthopaedics, has been relying on iglidur plain bearings made of high-performance polymers for more than 20 years.  

Produced with injection moulding: bearings that compensate tolerances, in heavy-duty agricultural equipment construction

In the case of the agricultural machine construction industry, hay rakes are subjected to continuous stress in rough conditions. No problem for igus® special parts, however: not only are they particularly wear-resistant, they are also maintenance-free and reduce assembly costs.

Printed in 3D: maintenance-free gripper for the packaging industry

Fast availability at a low price and use under hygienic conditions were important prerequisites for this 3D-printed gripper. It is used to package cosmetic products and has the special advantage of working without additional lubrication, therefore fulfilling hygienic requirements.

Made of bar stock: special bearings for highest precision in ophthalmology

iglidur® bar stock is used to manufacture a microscope arm for eye examinations. The reason: it can be machined to produce customised plain bearings down to sizes measured in μm to ensure the necessary precision for examinations.

Printed in 3D: customised plain bearing ready for collection within hours

What do you do when an important replacement part for an exhibit suddenly goes missing on the way to the trade fair? The response of the Berlin-based company Blackcam, a manufacturer of camera motion systems, is to turn to the igus 3D printing service.

Made of bar stock: individual iglidur® component for melting probe

The "IceMole" is a melting probe, with which the polar regions, glaciers and as a long-term objective extraterrestrial regions are to be explored. For storing the ice screw, a component was needed that is water- and dirt-resistant and  thermally insulated. Therefore, a bearing is used that was made of iglidur® A180 bar stock.
