Robust friction bearings from Igus GmbH

Also this year again the before fifty years in Cologne established company Igus sponsors us plastic bushings for our suspension. Igus, one of our longtime supporters, is market leader in the branch of energy chains with high flexible special cables and is an expert for bushings made from massive plastic. Nowadays Igus represented worldwide with more than thirty factories.
Like in the years before we use Igus’ plastic bushings and thrust washers at many places in the moving parts of our suspension because they are space-saving, weight reducing, low-maintenance and offer low friction properties in comparison to usual bearings. For our demand of plastic bushings with extraordinary forms Igus provides us with wrought material out of a large range of different bushing plastics to allow us to perform our special demands, too.
We are glade to thank Igus for continuing our successful cooperation and want to thank them for their contribution on a well functional spring damper system, a light and low-frictional anti roll bar and a precise steering system, too, by saying this.
