Igus Energy Chain Systems
igus® began in 1964. For the first 20 years, the company worked as a supplier of complex technical polymer components. However, in 1983 Frank Blase established reinforced plastic Energy Chain Systems® and injection molded polymer bearings as two distinct product groups and set up a network of sales engineers. These seemingly unrelated products are linked together through the belief in making functionally advanced, yet affordable polymer components and assemblies. igus®, now with over 1,600 employees worldwide, has representative partners in more than 33 countries.

Igus Energy Chain Energy Chain® Cable Carriers: They minimize downtime, protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. From the smallest ‘micro’ Energy Chain® to the world's largest polymer Energy Chain®, igus® cable carriers are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes. 
Igus Chain Flex Chainflex® continuous-flex cable: Optimal performance in demanding applications involving high speeds and accelerations. 


Igus Ready Chain ReadyChain® Pre-harnessed cable carriers: No assembly required. No more fumbling with cables, attaching connectors or assembling separators, mounting brackets, or other accessories: with ReadyChain®, the connectors are already attached to the cables, which are installed and separated in the correct order within the cable carrier.  


Igus iglide iglide® plastic bushing: Material exists for almost every application scenario - even chemical-exposed, dirty, underwater, high load or high temperature applications. For this reason, they are fast becoming a standard choice for design engineers around the world.  


Igus bearings  igubal® self-aligning bearings: Includes rod ends, ball and socket joints, clevis joints, pillow blocks, flange bearings, pressfit bearings, and spherical balls. They are made entirely from high-performance plastics, are self-lubricating, maintenance-free, and economical. They also compensate for misalignment, are vibration dampening, easy to install, lightweight, and corrosion resistant.  


Igus DryLin DryLin® linear bearings and linear guides: Dry-running linear motion. Oil-free and designed to run dry, without the need for the messy lubricants, costly maintenance, or the downtime typically associated with re-circulating ball bearing systems. The range is also resistant to dirt, dust and chemicals and other harsh environments.  


Igus DryLinR DryLin® R linear bearings: Cost effective


Igus xiros xiros® Plastic Ball Bearings for extreme applications: The inner and outer races are made from high-performance iglide® materials. The corrosion-free balls are made from stainless steel. Glass balls are also available for maximum corrosion resistance. 

Igus Iglide PRT iglide® PRT Slewing Rings: Self-lubricating and maintenance-free. iglide® PRT slewing rings use self-lubricating, low-friction sliding elements in place of ball bearings.
