From smelting works through coke ovens, steel mills, foundries and rolling mills up to material storage - igus® offers the ideal energy supply solutions for all requirements of a modern integrated steel plant.
Extreme conditions in terms of heat and dust, high demands on precision, long travel and sometimes highly dynamic movements, require individual solutions for every application.
We have the solution for almost every requirement and completely avoid steel and other metals in our materials. Even in many heavy-duty applications, steel systems were successfully replaced by energy supply systems made of high-performance plastics due to their extraordinary suitability.
The requirements are high and we meet them:
Resistant to corrosion
Cost-efficient, modular design
Long life at minimum maintenance costs
Resistance against dirt, chemicals and high temperatutres
Proven, tested material with igus® system garantee
Low weight with high stability
