In the furniture industry, cleanliness and weight saving are vital. Examples of where igus products offer big benefits include: smooth table drawers, clean bearings for rotary and pivoting motion, elegant and secure cable management, low-profile linear guides for moving sofa components, variable seat settings or individual height adjustments.
The use of technical polymers in place of ball bearings enables lubricant-free designs that do not attract dirt. This eliminates the risk of grease stains on fabrics and makes them well suited for clean, hygienic environments.
