... Using the robot intelligently and sliding around the curve …
an intelligent energy chain® that indicates a possible failure during ongoing operation, the first plastic strain wave gear in our low-cost modular robot system, a linear guide that goes round the curve. These are your igus® highlights in 2016. This is shown by your visits to our trade fairs and our website. And best of all – the products are already being used by customers.

We thank you sincerely for your cooperation this year. Talk to us or write to us about your motion plastics® wishes for 2017.

We hope you bring the year to a successful conclusion and have an enjoyable Christmas break.

Intelligently round the curve with the robot ... possible when three igus® innovations from 2016 are combined with each other.

Moving smoothly to the starting position
This sliding seat makes it easier to get into the starting position. Previously, ski jumpers had to sit on a wooden beam to slide into the middle of the starting ramp of the ski jump. Now, they sit on the sliding seat at the edge of the ski jump and slide into the starting position by simply shifting their weight.

Ice-cold solution
This shock freezer can defrost automatically. For this, however, you need an air hose and numerous cables, which have to be safely routed inside your installation. The optimum solution is the frost-resistant e-chain® from igus®.

Safe on the mountain side with motion plastics®
In Atomic's new ski boot, iglidur® bearings ensure the necessary manoeuvrability. With maximum manoeuvrability and a very high action radius of 74°, there is hardly any noticeable friction. Maintenance-free and lubrication-free igus® bearings for the main joints at the ankles are the secret behind this.
