The igus mobile exhibition is in full swing!

Find out how plastic bearings, linear systems, energy chains and cabling assemblies can help improve designs

A series of one day Road Show Exhibitions throughout the UK commenced on the 21st of July and will continue until 1st of August 2014. Using a modular display stand system, the exhibition truck is tailored to meet the needs of each company it visits. Engineers and purchasers will have plenty of time to speak to igus for advice on selecting energy chains, bearings and cabling assemblies for their applications – as well as viewing and handling product samples.  All of this will be in the comfort of their own premises.

The igus mobile exhibition is in full swing!

“We understand that our customers don’t always have the time to leave their workplace and attend trade shows,” explains Matthew Aldridge, Managing Director, igus. ”That’s why we decided it would be a great idea to offer an alternative, giving us the opportunity to visit customers while, at the same time, helping them save on travel, accommodation and valuable working time.”
