Strong UV radiation, heat, wind, dust: solar plants have to operate under extreme environmental conditions. igus offers different and customised solutions that meet these exact requirements. Our motion plastics impress with their long service life, freedom from maintenance and low costs. Application scenarios for dirt-resistant and lubrication-free plain and spherical bearings are, e.g. tracking systems, floating photovoltaic plants (floating PV) and cleaning systems.

This year, we are launching a total of 168 innovations. Industry Manager Richard Won presents the top innovations for the photovoltaic industry in three minutes. One example is a new iglidur® material for bearings in solar plants:
See for yourself the quality of our products and try out our maintenance-free igubal polymer spherical bearings.
In the company's own 3,800 square metre igus test laboratory, the service life, wear resistance and load capacity of igubal pillow block bearings for solar modules were examined under real loads of the daily motion sequence, simulated in a time-lapse.
The number of movements achieved under a load of 1.5 tons corresponded to a service life of 72 years.
