igus® spare parts recognition

Identifying spare parts made easy: significant reduction in search time

It can sometimes take a few minutes to find the right spare part. This often requires the help of technical details, data sheets and instructions. If these documents are not available, the time required is prolonged many times over.

igus AI-supported spare-part recognition identifies spare parts quickly and easily. The spare part is identified directly on site via mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The goal is to reduce the time spent on searching and always get the right spare part. In addition, you get the right information about the product and, with one click, are forwarded directly to the right online shop, where you can make an enquiry or place an order.

Note: igus spare-part identification only works for selected energy chains, linear guides and plain bearings. We are constantly adding more products to this service.
