Unmanned flights will affect our lives more and more. in the form of flying taxis and drones delivering packages. Low weight, all-weather use and long service life are among the stringent requirements of drone components. Our products made of high-performance polymers are ideal for such applications, since they require no additional lubrication and are quiet and corrosion-free. Many iglidur materials also fulfil the requirements of the FAR 25.853 fire protection standard.
This pest-control drone can extend a telescopic arm closely to the spot of infestation and, for example, spray pesticides there. A drylin linear guide and igubal bearings are used to move the arm and the articulated arm. The focus was on tough and light components.
In this selection of more than 40 application examples, you can find out how our energy chains and bearing products are used in aviation and aerospace, where they fulfil different requirements. Here, it was necessary to overcome challenges such as high loads, extreme temperature differences, confined spaces or specifications requiring low weight.
In a drone used to deploy pesticides, various igus products are used: drylin linear modules with extremely lightweight carbon rails and iglidur polymer carriages, igubal pillow block bearings and an E2 micro energy chain. They make the drone extremely manoeuvrable in the air and reduce the drive force needed to control it.
