"Show me the plastic part that causes you the most problems. I'll give you a solution!" This is the idea that moved our founder, Günter Blase, to start igus GmbH in 1964. We retained that idea for 20 years before expanding it to: "We make the most difficult energy supply systems simple for our customers."
For instance, we looked into applications that we had not previously been able to serve with the solutions in our catalogue portfolio, performed individual project planning, tested them, and continuously derived standards going forward. This means that today we can deliver many modular products to you immediately or simply adapt them to your application.
For linear travels of 1,200m or more and rotary or vertical movement, we offer a number of standardised modules that we can quickly adapt to your application.
Conversion or new installation: our modular system offers customised solutions – even for new challenges involving extremely difficult applications.
We will assist you from initial design and configuration to delivery and installation, and on-site energy supply system maintenance. With system guarantee.
Our energy chains have been used successfully for many years in steel mills, sewage plants, port cranes, mining, material handling and many other branches of industry.
From a driving simulator in 1992 to a record energy chain travel in a Czech lignite power plant in 2007 to high-speed RBR in a multi-spindle lathe in 2020:
