Test drive a free sample

POSTED 02/16/2009

igus® Inc. has announced it is giving away free cable carrier and continuous-flex cable samples as part of its newly-launched Sample Test Drive Program.

The program is aimed at those who want to evaluate the performance of igus’ products before purchasing. It includes a free technical consultation with igus over the phone or on-site so that the optimal cable carrier or continuous-flex cable can be specified.

igus is well positioned to assess a suitable solution: the company has 45-years field experience and conducts more than 2,000 tests on its Energy Chain® cable carriers and Chainflex® continuous-flex cables every year. These tests focus on push/pull forces, coefficients of friction, wear rates, drive forces and speeds under a wide range of demanding conditions.

igus has always offered free samples, but developed the new test drive concept to underline its confidence in and commitment to developing products which meet and exceed customer expectations.

“We want machine builders to find out first hand why companies are switching to igus,” said Joe Ciringione, North American Sales and Product Manager for igus’ Energy Chain Systems® Division, “If you test one of our cable carriers or continuous-flex cables on your prototype machine and you like it, you keep it—absolutely free! It’s that simple.”
