New profiles for iglidur semi-finished engineering productsIn order to enable even more efficient production, igus is expanding its range of semi-finished engineering plastic products. This enables the ordering of industrial profiles designed to individual specifications made from the proven iglidur materials. When extruding the final form, the customer benefits from lower processing and material costs.

Robert Dumayne, the dry-tech director at igus explains: “Based on our iglidur materials, we can implement a wide variety of profile geometries according to the requirements of our customers. By doing this, our customers receive their plastic solutions directly in the desired form, thus saving time and money.”

Profile geometry examples include U-shaped or square profiles, half-shells or tubes made of iglidur. They are used as sliding rails, guide rails or wear profiles in a wide range of industries, from machine and plant engineering, through the beverage and food industry to the textile industry.

All iglidur semi-finished products, whether round bars, plate material or profiles, are optimised for low friction and wear, and extensively tested in the igus laboratory. They are self-lubricating and therefore maintenance-free.

On request, special parts made of semi-finished products can be obtained via the ‘speedicut’ service. Simply submit a 3D model or a drawing via the speedicut online tool for a quotation and upon receipt of the order, the components are machined and dispatched within a few days.
