igus is a manufacturer of high-performance polymers for movement, based in Cologne (Germany). We have been developing and producing so-called motion plastics, innovative products made from lubrication-free plastics, since 1964. These include energy chains, cables, plain bearings, lead screw technology, robots and intelligent sensors that help our customers to improve their technology and reduce costs. Most products are manufactured using the injection moulding process, from which the company derives its name: igus = "Industriespritzguss" (industrial injection moulding).
