Robust components for fluid technology

Chemical and media-resistant bearing technology for pumps, meters, etc.

Around the world, manufacturers of hydraulic and pneumatic systems as well as HVAC facilities rely on lubrication-free components from igus. The reason for this is simple: from short linear movements to fast rotating applications in the medium, our tribologically optimised plastics offer high resistance to wear and abrasion and withstand chemicals and temperatures. Thanks to the incorporated solid lubricants, no external lubrication is required - saving time and money on maintenance.
