Lightweight & high load capacity

Model making is not always some kind of hobby or handicraft. It offers model makers the possibility to express themselves in a creative way and show what they can do with their hands. Models such as ships, aircraft and vehicles are recreated on many scales using construction kits, demanding work that requires great attention to detail. Alongside design in terms of shape and colours, technology and electronics also play an important role. Whether put into motion by remote control (RC) or just as an ornamental model on a shelf – love of detail and precision makes model making so popular. The motion plastics manufacturer igus is setting new technological standards in this sector. Maintenance-free plain bearings, spherical bearings and linear guides offer many benefits especially for model making. The combination of a light weight with high mechanical strength are ideal for high-quality models.
