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.
This year we could again rely on the excellent quality of our partner TKG. Thanks to them, this year's Bolide can once again stand on carbon rims, because they manufactured the rim shape for us. The heat sinks were also manufactured by our in-house erosion department. Furthermore, you were able to take over the demanding production of the self-developed engine including the high-precision titanium shaft for us. Many thanks for the uncomplicated, competent and reliable cooperation!
