Closed shops, no business trips, trade fair cancellations - everyone is feeling the effects of the corona crisis. We present here how some selected companies deal with it.
Igus: five new canteens and respirators
Upon request from construction practice, motion plastics specialist Igus reports that it is currently possible to deliver without restrictions, and that 97 percent of all catalog parts are available directly from stock. Even if factories close and machines are not built, the demand for motion plastics remains.

And meanwhile the world all Igus employees who do not need to be there for their work in the home office. The Igus employees work with each other using collaboration tools and are still available to customers on all digital channels and by telephone.
Igus has taken extensive measures to further protect employees on site: At the main location in Cologne, in addition to area-wide disinfection dispensers, there is a fever measurement at the entrance, significantly increased cleaning cycles, respiratory masks for employees and an increased minimum distance. The personnel density per shift has been reduced by changing the shifts. Even five new canteens were set up in a very short time to reduce contact.
As a contact alternative, Igus has greatly expanded its digital channels so that it can continue to advise customers. The company relies on virtual visits via smartphone, desktop sharing or online chat. Assembly aids and drawings are possible as well as a tour of the respective machine or interactive presentations.

R + W: designers in the home office
The coupling manufacturer R + W follows the developments very closely and has implemented all preventive and protective measures that are necessary to protect the employees. In addition to stricter hygiene rules, group formation is prohibited in the company itself and external visits are only permitted in exceptional cases. The breaks of the employees are staggered in time, and parts of the workforce work preventively in the home office.
Since the designers at R + W cannot simply work from their laptops at home, some have moved the entire computer from the company to their home office. So part of it is still working on site and part of it is at home.
Findling roller bearings: support for customers in an emergency
Findling Wälzlager sent risk people to the home office and limited the contact between the employees at an early stage. The company continues to operate fully, the company says. The rolling bearing manufacturer supports customers in the implementation of individual emergency plans, such as the early delivery of orders and the granting of value dates. How to support customers in critical situations, solutions will be come up in due course.
Torwegge: Virtual showroom instead of Logimat
The intralogistics specialist Torwegge actually wanted to present its trade fair highlights at Logimat - due to the cancellation of the trade fair, the provider has now come up with something new: interested parties can visit the trade fair stand via short videos in a virtual showroom and learn more about the products. In addition to the information, there is also a live chat, a contact form and the possibility of contacting us by phone. Detailed consultation appointments can be carried out by video conference.
Vogel Communications Group: New platform for virtual exchange
The Vogel Communications Group has also remained active and created the “Industrial Generation Network” platform especially for the current corona crisis. To date, 650 companies have registered on the international digital platform for digital networking, product presentations and thematic exchange. In the future, tools such as video conferences and appointments can partially compensate for the drop in sales through canceled or postponed live events. The platform thus replaces the face-to-face communication of companies - especially at national and international trade fairs.
