Industrial vehicles with high-performance polymers

Defects, repairs or maintenance of industrial vehicles can be costly, both in terms of replacement parts but also expensive downtime. Robust and reliable components are therefore required to avoid downtime and lower unnecessary costs. Whether high loads at bearing locations with up to 250 MPa or very small bending radii for cables: igus® has maintenance-free solutions with long service life for industrial vehicles such as forklifts, industrial tractors or driverless transport systems. In many applications, metallic bushings or recirculating ball bearing guides can be replaced by self-lubricating polymer plain bearings and linear guides!
