November 16, 2021 Avory Brookins

This year, you can take advantage of Cyber Monday’s free standard shipping during the entire week at igus® – because one day just isn't enough for the impact we're trying to make on our environment. 

All online orders under $5,000 placed between Monday, November 29 through Friday, December 3 will receive free standard shipping via UPS Ground. Additionally, in an effort to advance environmental sustainability and combat the effects of climate change, we’ll plant a tree for every online order placed that week, regardless of order value.  

So, don’t miss out on your opportunity to save while making a difference. Sign up here so we can remind you about Cyber Week closer to its start date. And keep reading to learn about our products, online service life calculators and sustainability initiatives. 

Our Commitment to Sustainability

With any manufacturing process, there’s going to be waste. However, that doesn’t mean it has to be thrown into a landfill. 

igus® reuses 99 percent of its plastic waste by processing it into granulated material and recycling it back into the injection molding production process.

We also offer a recycling program for old plastic cable carriers called chainge. Customers send us their carriers so we can separate the material and ship it to our recycling partner in Massachusetts. In return, we give those customers a voucher to use on future igus® purchases. 

In addition to these sustainability initiatives, igus® products are designed to reduce lubricant pollution thanks to their self-lubricating, maintenance-free characteristics. They also weigh less than metal, which helps reduce the amount of energy required to move applications. Plus, our tribologically-optimized polymer materials are low-friction, reducing abrasion and microplastic pollution.

Our products include plain, self-aligning and slewing ring bearings; linear slides and actuators; lead screws and nuts; cable carriers; flexible cables; low-cost automation solutions; and more.

Our entire dry-running component product range is designed using iglide® plastic materials. These engineered polymer blends consist of base plastics for wear resistance, reinforcing fibers for high forces, and solid lubricants that eliminate the need for external grease. This material makeup enables us to create self-lubricating, maintenance-free, low-friction parts that are resistant to dirt, dust, chemicals and corrosion. 

Our e-chain® cable carriers and chainflex® flexible cables are guaranteed to last up to 36 months. We offer carriers in various sizes for long, gliding, and unsupported travels and nearly 1,400 cable types with different technical and cost-saving advantages.

All igus® products are rigorously tested each year inside our 41,000ft2 lab at our headquarters in Cologne, Germany. We do this to guarantee quality and give our customers the ability to easily estimate service life online.
