Lightweight, quiet, failsafe and as small as possible Igus products fulfil these requirements for aircraft interior with the added benefit of being lubrication- and maintenance-free.

The development of components for aircraft interiors focuses on specific criteria, Igus offers the optimum solution for virtually any moving application in the interior.

Lubrication-free – entirely clean operation and 100% maintenance-free thanks to Igus high-performance polymers (UL94 & V0 certification on request).

Lightweight – thanks to the use of lightweight components such as plastic, aluminium or carbon.

Quiet – Igus bearings, linear guides and energy chains slide smoothly and virtually silently since they are designed without balls.

Small – Igus products adapt to any installation space, while remaining fully functional.

For these reasons, Igus products are ideally suited for a variety of applications in the aircraft interior, including seating kinematics, in headrests that can be height-adjusted in fixed steps, in table extensions, footrest adjustments, mobile cabin partitions or for the adjustment, function and maintenance of entertainment systems.

Customised special parts, as well as mechanically produced prototypes are always possible.

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
