igus® develops industry-leading Energy Chain cable carriers®, Chainflex continuous-flex cables, iglide® plastic plain bearings, igubal® spherical bearings, and DryLin® linear bearings and guide systems. These seemingly unrelated products are linked together through a belief in making functionally advanced, yet affordable plastic components and assemblies. Over 80,000 products available from stock. No minimum order required.

For robotics applications requiring three-dimensional (3-D) and multi-axis freedom of movement, igus® offers Triflex® R multi-dimensional Energy Chains®. Smooth contours and a tubular design ensure fluid mobility. Triflex® R is constructed with a ball and socket style modular assembly, which provides high tensile strength and flexibility without the need for steel cables.

Services include full in-house harnessing, design consultation, on-site consultation, guarantee and warranty.
