The number of passengers on public transport has been increasing steadily for 20 years. This is confirmed by figures from the Association of German Transport Companies. Good news for the industry, but also an increasing strain on rail network, trains, trams and equipment: durable components are required that can withstand such high requirements and yet meet stringent fire safety standards, such as EN 45545 or NFPA 130 .
But how about reducing maintenance effort and costs or making regular lubrication unnecessary? Is that impossible? Not at all! igus has given the name motion plastics to these components, which simplify a wide range of applications wherever movement is involved; tram doors are a typical example.
Tech up, cost down - with energy chains for confined installation spaces: especially flat, with a small bend radius and 30% cost advantage compared to the previous model.
You can find out more information on these and further product innovations at our 400m2 trade show stand. You can either explore it virtually on your own or together with our industry expert. Make an appointment now for a guided virtual tour with individual consultation:

All products are checked in the igus test laboratory, the largest in the industry, under real-life conditions with regard to wear and durability. This enables the precise determination of the service life of the products.
Upon request, igus carries out customer tests so as to check the use of the products under completely unique conditions.
