AboutIgus® B.V.

More than five decades of experience with motion plastics®

Our world has always been in flux. Technical progress makes our machines faster and faster and their movements more precise. This creates new challenges with regard to the machine components. As early as 1964, Günter Blase, the founder of igus, had the idea of ​​developing motion products for moving applications made of wear-resistant high-performance polymers. Today they are called motion plastics. motion plastics also provide improvements from an environmental point of view. The life cycle analysis of the produced plastics is good. The production process uses 50% less mineral oil than similar products made from steel and 70% less than those made from aluminum. Given the 54.4 billion tons of lubricant released into the environment each year,
