Tested in the igus test laboratory for use in the real world

Tested for continuous load, media resistance and quiet operation

In the industry's largest test laboratory for plastics, iglidur plain bearings, drylin linear technology and igubal coupling joints are put through their paces. The focus is on testing assemblies and examining the tribological properties of different material combinations. The results are incorporated into our online tools for service life calculation and enable exact predictions of durability.

Upon request, igus performs customer tests to check product use under specific conditions.
