Ensuring that all igus products live up to the company’s ‘plastics for longer life’ mantra, the state-of-the-art dry-tech lab performs over 7000 tests a year on energy chains and cables, as well as polymer plain bearings and linear systems.
Designed to endure the most demanding environmental conditions – from underwater applications to extreme heat – all of the igus polymer products undergo a range of stringent tests. These involve push-pull forces, friction, wear, driving forces and abrasion under widely varying conditions and speeds. Influential factors such soiling, weathering, cold and impact are also examined.
Fully compliant with ISO 9001:2008 standards, the igus dry-tech lab helps ensure all products are proven to provide designers and engineers with plastics of high quality and durability.
