Clean, quiet and light - these are the most important criteria for the production of furniture and furnishings. These alone create great demand for our motion plastics in the furniture industry. However, the lubrication-free, high-performance polymers can do much more:
They slide smoothly with little effort and remain maintenance-free over their entire service life. As they do not require external lubricants, neighbouring materials such as textile covers, leather or wood are not in danger of being soiled. Whether hidden or visible, in soft opening table drawers or in flexible sofa arrangements with a range of seat settings, in kitchen cabinets, in the bathroom or garden – our bearing solutions, energy chains and flexible cables are used wherever there is movement. They prove their worth day after day in the toughest of industrial applications and have received the iF DESIGN AWARD and the Red Dot Award several times.
This year, we are launching 168 innovations. Our International Product Manager Michael Hornung will present our top innovations for furniture construction in just two minutes. These include, e.g. our new telescopic rails in black:
More than 55 materials
More than 15,000 parts from stock
Individual solutions with no minimum order quantity
Compensation for misalignment
Corrosion-free, easy to clean
Resistant to high loads
Tech up, cost down: see for yourself how it works with applications in furniture construction. Order our free sample boxes for plain bearing and linear technology now.
iglidur plain bearings make it possible to fold out the storage spaces of this designer table, both lubrication and maintenance-free.
This mirror becomes a real eye-catcher with its gesture control. Thanks to a drylin linear guide, it can be pushed open and closed, lubrication and maintenance-free.
The triflex TRE system from igus provides safe cable guidance and blends into the surroundings in the best possible way.
With office or home furnishings it is vital for rotating or linear movements to take place in an especially quiet, smooth and homogenous way. The design is the deciding factor and technical components must be optimally integrated.
The modern kitchen combines innovative technology with contemporary design. All movements should be easy and quiet, all bearing points durable and resistant, all elements 100% lubrication and maintenance-free. igus products fulfil the high technical requirements whilst saving costs.
