Maintenance-free and lubrication-free polymer plain bearings for fluid technology

Resistant to chemicals and media, maintenance-free, lubricant-free

Around the world, manufacturers of hydraulic and pneumatic systems as well as HVAC facilities rely on lubricant-free components from igus. The reason for this is simple: from short linear movements to fast rotating applications, our tribologically optimised plastics provide a high resistance to wear, abrasion, chemicals and temperature as well as freedom from maintenance.

Hydraulic and pneumatic components give machinery and equipment power, precision, speed and dynamics. The demands on the installed machine elements are correspondingly high! The range of uses for iglidur® plain bearings, igubal® spherical bearings and drylin® linear guides or lead screws in fluid technology is constantly increasing. They are also proving their worth in fittings and valves. From simple linear movements to fast rotating applications, they offer high wear and abrasion resistance, chemical and temperature resistance as well as freedom from maintenance when running dry.

Benefits of igus® products:

  • Save installation space and weight
  • Low noise and low vibration
  • Maintenance-free for 24/7 use
  • Fast delivery
  • Easy assembly
  • Complete system or individual components from batch size 1
