Little space. Little time. Little money.
Little is becoming a big issue
From Treotham you can obtain the most comprehensive range of igus cables for extremely small bend radii. In this way we are keeping up with the trend towards increasingly compact machines and smaller installation spaces.

Little: miniature e-chains® that can be opened extremely quickly, small linear robots with a height of only 100 mm and compact, low-cost robots for space-saving automation - Buy a ready-made product or build it yourself using the robolink® modular kit - and, of course, at little cost.

At, you can find many "little" solutions. We look forward to your enquiry. We will also be happy to visit you at your premises. Just request an appointment.

Best wishes,

Insights from the igus® lab
Little wear: sensational service life of gear wheels made of SLS material
Made of iglidur® I6 and printed with the igus® 3D printing service, using SLS. The high performance plastic developed for gear wheels is especially wear resistant and, in tests, beats machined gear wheels made of common materials such as POM and PBT.
