How high performance polymer parts are used in utility vehicles

Utility vehicles, including buses, telescopic loaders and commercial good vehicles, have to withstand very tough working conditions and need to work reliably even in bad weather. igus makes this possible with its energy chains, chainflex cables, linear systems and polymer plain bearings that are characterised by their outstanding resilience and long service life.

In this week’s video, we find out how igus products are making a big difference to drivers and passengers alike.For buses, anti-vibration linear technology and self-lubricating plain bearings offer comfort in driver and passenger seat adjustment mechanisms. These are complemented by functional safety and kinematic systems for the driver’s steering wheel and console. Maintenance free bearings ensure smooth operation of doors, and defined cable guidance extends cable life.

More than 20,000 customers worldwide place their trust in polymer solutions tested under realistic conditions at the igus test facility. If a part cannot be found in the comprehensive standard products catalogue, custom parts are also available in short lead-times.
