Weather-resistant, maintenance-free and space-saving components for wind turbines

Wind turbines must be able to work reliably even when exposed to harsh weather conditions such as severe temperature fluctuations, sand storms, turbulence and strong winds. igus® offers many solutions for wind turbines as well as for the associated equipment used in production, transport and installation.These can help you improve your technology and reduce costs. The components required include robust energy chains and highly-flexible cables that are used, for example in towers, yaw systems and rotor blade adjustment. Lubrication and maintenance-free plain bearings are deployed in rotor blade adjustment and brakes.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Safe torsional and circular movements
  • Cable protection against vibration
  • Small installation spaces, tight radii
  • Maintenance and lubrication-free bearings
  • Failsafe cables with 36 months warranty
  • Reduce downtime and increase the service life of cables and hoses
