motion plastics for mining and bulk handling technology

Over 50 years of experience

In the area of bulk handling, equipment must function under tough and dirty conditions and work reliably even in bad weather. igus offers polymer components for bulk handling which make that possible and are characterised by their robustness and long service life. These include energy chains, cables and hoses that are used, e.g. in bucket wheel excavators, ship loaders, portal scrapers, wagon tipplers, conveyor belts, lifts, silos and funnels. The igus Project Engineering Team will assist you with the sizing, design, construction, project management, reconstruction, installation and commissioning on site.
