Conditions in agriculture are rough and temperamental. Therefore, it is even more important for components to work reliably and withstand the daily conditions. Our technical products can do exactly that: low temperatures, heat, ice and dirt simply do not faze them, as with their high-performance polymers and without additional lubrication, they have been designed especially for this.
Maintenance-free polymer plain bearings can be used with heavy-duty applications in soil cultivating machines or front loaders. drylin linear systems can adjust monitors in tractor cabins. Energy chains and chainflex cables are ideal for supplying field spraying systems with energy and liquids. Application options are versatile.
Our innovations 2020 for agricultural engineering
Tech up, cost down - for example, with plain bearings that are extremely dimensionally strong, and the drygear modular gearbox system for use in smart farming.

One of the most common causes of failure and downtime in agricultural machinery lies in the wear of the shafts and bearings. You can learn in our white paper how you can avoid this problem with our lubrication-free plain bearings and increase the service life of both components.

Maintenance-free and self-lubricating
... in the desired shape, quantity and the right material, tailored exactly to your application together with our experts
Lightweight and quiet operation
Simple installation and maintenance-free
igus has been successfully collaborating with Lemken since 2008. Various Lemken machines are equipped with igus plain bearings, among them the cultivator Karat 9. In the overload elements, the metal bearing points previously used had to be lubricated up to one hour per day to prevent wear and corrosion. By switching to lubrication-free polymer plain bearings, the farmer saves valuable time. Furthermore, the dirt resistance and stability of the plain bearings increase service life and dependability.
Maintenance-free and resistant to dust and dirt, the iglidur G plain bearings are used in hinges, locking systems and hydraulic cylinders of bale trimming machines from Optimal-Vertrieb Opitz. They replace red brass solutions, that were produced in-house and required both a relatively large installation space and lubricants that polluted the environment. The new polymer bearings need no lubrication and withstand all edge loads without problems.

Cost-effective automation systems
Due to their FDA-conformity, resistance to dirt, noncorroding qualities and the absence of a need for maintenance, igus products are able to fulfil the high requirements in vertical agriculture. Our Low Cost Automation systems enable cost-effective farming throughout the year and a fast return on investment.
Low-maintenance and fail-safe components
igus replacement parts for the guidance, transfer and bearing support on telescopic elevated work platforms, such as energy chains and cables as well as polymer plain bearings, linear bearings or sliding plates meet the stringent requirements for components that are subjected to continuous stress in outdoor applications.
