Outstanding applications of plastic bearings

Igus has announced the winners of the 2006 Manus Plastic Bearing Design Awards, its competition for challenging and innovative applications using polymer plain bearings. The concept behind Manus is to promote new and original ways of using plastic bearings and to encourage awareness of the advantages to a wider audience of potential users. The competition also endeavours to reward those with the courage and tenacity to implement polymer bearings in the most innovative or challenging applications, with cash prizes totalling £4,000. Igus launched Manus in the UK and Republic of Ireland in 2004. The 2006 competition had over 50 percent more entries, and saw applications from a wide range of industries, from folding bikes and prosthetic limbs, to high-tech hinges and laboratory equipment. The contest has also been run in the United States, Germany, Italy and Brazil since its inception in 2003.
