We have developed iglidur® A230 clip bearings for this purpose

In food processing, trays are not only used for baking cakes. In packaging and processing machines, many moving parts are guided or supported in constructions of thin-walled metal parts.  ​

The holes in these sheets are often imprecisely punched or lasered. Conventional plain bearings, however, generally require precise fits in order to ensure a captive press fit.  ​

This is where the clip plain bearing series from iglidur  comes into play. Due to the undercut, these bearings are captive even with inaccurate holes. The new material iglidur A230 additionally ensures that the system can be designed according to EU10/2011 and FDA requirements and is resistant to many aggressive cleaning agents.  ​
