igus will present its motion plastics products and innovations on six trending topics in conjunction with IAA Mobility, an international motor show that showcases the latest technology in mobility solutions. The show will run from Sept. 7-12 in Munich.
Mobility is changing rapidly: e-scooters, e-bikes and e-vehicles with alternative drives have long been commonplace. The concept of car sharing is establishing itself in major cities all over the world. igus engineers and its motion plastics products have been supporting the trend. For the IAA Mobility event, industry and plastics specialists will provide insights on sustainability, alternative drives, aerodynamics, value engineering, autonomous driving, and bicycles that can be engineered with or without battery power.
Wide product range
igus products can contribute to mobility solutions in a number of ways. Lubrication-free polymer solutions can contribute to sustainability, as plain bearings, linear guides and energy chains made of polymers reduce lubricant, fuel consumption and weight.
In a presentation on alternative drives, igus will show how polymer plain bearings can greatly reduce costs. A livestream on aerodynamics will deal with corrosion at bearing points in hinges. Experts in value engineering will present the short-term services of igus for rapid development and product optimization.
Autonomous driving also requires design creativity from developers. igus shows how to reliably guide complicated moving cables. But cars are not the only mobility option in which polymer solutions are advantageous. In the increasingly popular bicycle, with or without battery power, polymer bearings have a long service life despite contact with dirt and water. igus bicycle experts will demonstrate examples of weight and lubrication reduction.
The six presentations will be held live from the trade show stand in Cologne. All participants will have the opportunity to ask the experts questions immediately after the broadcasts. More information about free access to the shows can be found at igus.eu/drynamic-mobility-show-lp
