Time seems to have accelerated in this strange year, it is unbelievable that I am now writing the summer newsletter editorial.

We do not have any summer shutdowns at igus®, we are open 8-8 every working day for you, shipping all stock parts within 24 hours. If you need support or further information, then we can arrange a “virtual visit” using Microsoft Teams, Facetime, WhatsApp etc, or we can come to your premises, taking all suitable safety precautions. Remember, if you have moving parts on your machine, then it is likely that we can save you time and money.

Throughout 2020 my offer of samples still stands, so email me with the details of your requirements and, I promise I will give it my urgent attention. This applies to bearings, linear guides, cable chains and flexible cables, the samples are free and you could save a lot of money.

Stay safe and enjoy the summer, best regards,

Matthew Aldridge

Tech up, Cost down. Now it is important.

Take part in our concise online seminars to quickly find out how this is done.

With the new “Tech up, Cost down” online seminars lasting 20 to 30 minutes, you learn exactly how this can be done for your particular application.

How we can do this? For more than 50 years, we have been developing and testing technical plastics and, every day, our experts improve thousands of applications.

We bundle all this knowledge together in these online seminars. You are quickly given an overview of what can be done: the elimination of wear and lubrication, for example, results in technical improvement or extending service intervals, amongst other things, leads to a reduction of costs. Or even both.

We have listed the topics for you here. We look forward to your participation.

Trends & new solutions for your applications.

Take part from anywhere with just the click of a mouse.

Free of charge
No participation fee and without any travel costs.
