Also igus, a German company, will exhibit at ZEROEMISSION 2021.
Born in 1993, the Italian branch of the igus group continues to grow to offer the best of motion plastics to the whole Peninsula. Thanks to the warehouse, igus Italia with more than 100 collaborators – in the city of Robbiate (LC) headquarters and throughout the national territory – the company offers a capillary service and tailor-made assistance for specific photovoltaic, energy and electric mobility applications, and for special projects.
Technological progress consists in making the machines faster and faster and their movements more precise. Consequently, components also have to always overcome new challenges. It is precisely on the basis of this assumption that, in 1964, Günter Blase founded igus, with the idea of developing high-performance, wear-resistant polymer products for every type of movement. Today, these products are called motion plastics. Also from an environmental point of view, motion plastics represent an improvement. On the one hand, the production process to manufacture polymer components requires half the liters of oil compared to those needed to produce an equivalent steel product and up to 70% less if we are talking about similar aluminum products. On the other hand, if we consider the 54.4 billion tons of lubricant that are dispersed in the environment every year, igus’ self-lubricating products contribute to the protection of the environment.
