With the T20 of the drylin W series, igus is launching a new linear carriage on the market, which has the same dimensions as most classic carriages with recirculating ball bearing guides. This enables a quick 1:1 replacement – without any structural adjustments. By using drylin W, applications benefit from freedom from lubrication, a long service life, less cleaning effort and reduced weight.
Reducing environmentally harmful emissions from global shipping: with this goal in mind, the Spanish start-up bound4blue has developed a novel propulsion technology – fully automated sails that significantly reduce fuel consumption. Lubrication-free and maintenance-free plain and radial deep groove ball bearings from igus are used.
Man, machine – or both? Humanoid robots are no longer science fiction, they are reality. igus has been researching humanoid robotics for some time and is now presenting a prototype of the motion plastics bot at the Hannover Messe: a humanoid robot that combines the advantages of high-performance plastics and Low Cost Automation.
