In Minnesota the igus® car continued to make visits as the weather got colder. The first visit was to a manufacturer of credit cards, driver’s licenses, passports, and company badges. The mechanical engineers were very enthusiastic and familiar with igus® products because they currently use small E-Chains® in their machines.

The first traveling trade show in Wisconsin, was a joint visit with two customers in attendance. The first is a technology development and product design firm.
