As this odd summer draws to a close, we settle down with a glass of red rather than chilled white, and marvel at how quickly this year is passing. In a few years time we will see 2020 on the side of a bottle, and what memories will come back then?

Happy new year and new decade to all newsletter readers!

Perhaps like me you made a list of new years resolutions, which is already looking a little too long. When I was at school, a wise person gave me some sound advice on writing lists; put down everything you know then “etc.” at the end, the reader will then assume you know more than you do. I still use this trick to this day! Anyway, no matter what other resolutions you may have, resolve one more thing for 2020; improve the life of your machine while saving money! Throughout 2020 my offer 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. You are also always welcome to visit us in Northampton!

COP26 is now behind us, and the work starts now on real practical ways to help the environment.

You can read about this at our sustainability page here https://www.igus.co.uk/info/sustainability Last week igus UK launched yet another environmental initiative, cable recycling. As well as being an eco-friendly way to recycle your used cables, the money raised will be used to plant trees in collaboration with the National Trust, https://www.igus.co.uk/info/chainflex-recycling.

Over the last year we have all had to get used to working on Zoom or Microsoft Teams, and this way of life is certainly here to stay! One great feature in Teams is the chat function, and my dear newsletter readers, you are most welcome to chat with me. I will be taking a summer break from writing the editorial in these newsletters, but my message to you remains the same: if you have moving parts on your machine, then it is likely that we can save you time and money. My offer of samples still stands, so contact 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.
