Elevator from "thyssenkrupp Elevator"

thyssenkrupp Elevator uses energy supply products from igus®

thyssenkrupp Elevator, one of the leading companies in lift technologies and services, has replaced conventional ropes with linear motors. The linear drive and the guide rod can rotate by 90°. With regard to energy supply, the greatest challenges included the little amount of space available and small bend radii. The energy chains are being used for the first time in the lift sector for such an application.  

"AIRFRAME ™" exoskeleton with iglidur plain bearings

Exoskeleton from Pathway profits from iglidur plain bearings

The levitating "AIRFRAME ™" exoskeleton takes the strain off muscles, supports movement sequences and prevents tension in the neck, shoulders and upper back. A large number of different iglidur® bearings from the igus product range are built into the mechanical support system.  With igus products, it was possible to create a compact, lightweight design and fulfil the technical design requirements for non-corrosive materials. The exoskeleton can also be used in difficult environmental conditions.
