  • Increase the service lives of your machines with plasticsigus® GmbH | plastics for longer life®Increase the service life of machinery with plasticsFounded in 1964 in Cologne, igus® is the leading manufacturer of energy chains® (drag chains) and energychain systems® with cables, connectors and all accessories as well as maintenance-free polymer bearings.igus® has 30 branches worldwide in addition to around 53 sales partners from 42 countries. igus® employs1,900 people, about 1,000 of them at its headquarters in Cologne. • igus® was founded in 1964 • igus® has branches in 30 countries and sales partners in 42 countries • igus® employs about 1900 people worldwide at present • igus® develops between 1500 and 2500 new products and product extensions every year • Over 80,000 products from stock! • Daily delivery and consultation from 7-20 hrs and Saturdays from 8-12 hrs! http://www.igus.de/wpck/default.aspx?pagename=plasticsforlongerlife&wt.mc_id=SLSH01igus® GmbH, Spicher Str. 1a | D-51147 Cologne | Tel. +49 (0) 22 03/96 49 -0 | Fax -222 | info@igus.de | www.igus.de | © igus® GmbH, 11/2011
  • Increase the service lives of your machines with plasticsigus® GmbH | plastics for longer life®Delivery from stock in 24 h or todayOn average in recent months over 97 percent of all 80,000 igus® catalog items asked for were immediatelyavailable. This trend is on the rise. The catalog items must be in stock in order to assemble and ship thestructural components according to customers requirements within hours. igus® delivers from stock within 24hours or the same day. igus® delivers from a single unit and without any minimum quantity surcharges. Theincreased demand for ready-to-install energy chain systems®, the so-called readychains®, is supported by anorganic growth of the factory, such as 3,500 m² of extended area for production of these turnkey systems.Assembled with special cables, hoses, connectors and all accessories, the complete systems are availablein one to ten days depending on the degree of difficulty. In addition we have established a new on-siteinstallation service covering a large area, which includes a guarantee and final report for the customer. http://www.igus.de/wpck/default.aspx?pagename=deliveryservice&wt.mc_id=SLSH01igus® GmbH, Spicher Str. 1a | D-51147 Cologne | Tel. +49 (0) 22 03/96 49 -0 | Fax -222 | info@igus.de | www.igus.de | © igus® GmbH, 11/2011
  • Increase the service lives of your machines with plasticsigus® GmbH | plastics for longer life®Over 111 new products (in 2011) – cost less, last longerYear after year, igus® provides an array of innovations and enhancements in the area of energy chains®,chainflex® cables and polymer plain bearings. In 2011 igus® introduced a record number of 111 productnovelties. Contracts obtained with new plastic products, numerous compared to suppliers of metal solutions,prompt igus® to invest more heavily in material and product development. Thus, now in Antwerp, instead of asteel chain, the largest and maintenance-free plastic energy chain® in the world – the "E4.350" – is used topump mud from the dock. Or the vertically traveling energy chain system® "guidelok" for storage and retrievalunits, which does not require the continuous metallic trough anymore and thus reduces the trough costs by 80percent.In the second area – the polymer bearings – too, igus® relies on new products and materials. Lubrication- andmaintenance-free iglidur® plastic plain bearings today replace millions of metallic bushings that need oil orgrease. They also have a long and predictable life. And with over 10,000 items in stock, designers can usethese innovations at once. The past year brought a further big boost in this regard. Because, the dry-runningpolymer bearings save money and increase the safety of machinery. An MIT study estimated the failure coststhrough insufficient lubrication in the U.S. alone at 240 billion dollars per year. http://www.igus.de/wpck/default.aspx?pagenr=7394&playlistID=1&wt.mc_id=SLSH01igus® GmbH, Spicher Str. 1a | D-51147 Cologne | Tel. +49 (0) 22 03/96 49 -0 | Fax -222 | info@igus.de | www.igus.de | © igus® GmbH, 11/2011
  • Increase the service lives of your machines with plasticsigus® GmbH | plastics for longer life®About 60 percent more factory space, streamlined processesigus® manufactures, tests and researches in Cologne now in a building area of 36,000 m2. The factory areahas been extended to 29,000 m2, added to which are 7,000 m2 of surrounding buildings for, inter alia,additional fabrication, technical training and a large logistics center. A renewed enlargement is planned for late2012. In the course of the factory extension, igus® has closely examined all departments: from marketing andadministration to research and development, tool design and production through to warehousing anddistribution.http://www.igus.de/wpck/default.aspx?pagename=initiative&wt.mc_id=SLSH01igus® GmbH, Spicher Str. 1a | D-51147 Cologne | Tel. +49 (0) 22 03/96 49 -0 | Fax -222 | info@igus.de | www.igus.de | © igus® GmbH, 11/2011
  • Increase the service lives of your machines with plasticsigus® GmbH | plastics for longer life®Own test facilities, more than 1,000 m² of test labThe test laboratory for energy chains® and cables from igus® currently has 1030 m². Our new standardproducts and customized energy chains® are constantly tested at more than 70 different test rigs. Many testrigs are designed and built by ourselves, since they are highly test specific. The test laboratory spectrumranges from climate cabinet, freezer containers and low-reflection anechoic chamber, tests on six-axis robotsand other torsion machines through test rigs for dynamic simulations (bending cycle, etc.) up to external testfacility for long energy chain® travel.http://www.igus.de/wpck/default.aspx?pagename=quality&wt.mc_id=SLSH01igus® GmbH, Spicher Str. 1a | D-51147 Cologne | Tel. +49 (0) 22 03/96 49 -0 | Fax -222 | info@igus.de | www.igus.de | © igus® GmbH, 11/2011
  • Increase the service lives of your machines with plasticsigus® GmbH | plastics for longer life®Over 10,000 tests annually in the igus® technology centerEvery year we conduct more than 10,000 tests in the in-house technology center. The trend is growing. Inaddition to 7,500 tests with polymer plain bearings, spherical plain bearings, ball bearings and linear plainbearings, there are around 3,000 energy chain® tests plus 400 cable tests (1,000 different types). Focus ofextensive tests are service life, push and pull forces, friction coefficients, wear, drive forces/energy efficiency andabrasion under the most varied speeds and loads as well as factors such as dirt, weather conditions, cold orbumps and impacts. The goal is to continuously push the application limits upwards. A long-term test – onservice life – has recently been completed, which ran for over nine and a half years; 270 million double strokeswere covered in this time. A total of about 9,000 test results are incorporated into the electronic databases everyyear. Moreover, we have numerous products inspected and certified (Fraunhofer, TÜV) by independentagencies for select properties (cleanroom compatibility, noise emissions, ESD, explosion protection, etc.).igus® GmbH, Spicher Str. 1a | D-51147 Cologne | Tel. +49 (0) 22 03/96 49 -0 | Fax -222 | info@igus.de | www.igus.de | © igus® GmbH, 11/2011

  • Increase the service lives of your machines with plasticsigus® GmbH | plastics for longer life®New products for a lubrication-free worldSave money and increase the reliability of machinery with dry-running polymer bearings.Lubrication- and maintenance-free plastic plain bearings are also friendly to the environment:• Worldwide more than 50% of the lubricants is discharged into the environment. (Landesanstalt für Umweltschutz Baden-Würtemberg)• From an annual global lubricant consumption of 37.3 million tons, over 18 million tons thus reach the environment without any protection (RWTH Aachen)• Downtime costs due to insufficient lubrication in the U.S. alone amount to 240 billion dollars (MIT)• Over 50% of all bearing damage … is caused by faulty lubrication.• Over 15 million tons of lubricants … pollute the environment every year.• Over 700 billion USD per year … are lost by wastage of resources due to friction wear through faulty lubrication. (Data: Loss of U.S. 240 billion USD - U.S. GDP, 29% of global GDP -> estimated global loss of 828 billion. (http://www.machinerylubrication.com)) 47.7 billion USD for Germany – GDP Germany 6% of global GDP -> estimated $ 795 billion) http://www.igus.de/wpck/default.aspx?Pagename=plasticsforlongerlife&wt.mc_id=SLSH01igus® GmbH, Spicher Str. 1a | D-51147 Cologne | Tel. +49 (0) 22 03/96 49 -0 | Fax -222 | info@igus.de | www.igus.de | © igus® GmbH, 11/2011
