Short linear stroke against various shafts

The wear of iglidur® bearings in short linear strokes is to be tested. Among others, this involves analysing very short linear motions of 5 mm at high frequency, such as occur in actuators and in solenoid engineering. The intent of the test series is to determine the most wear-resistant iglidur® plain bearing material on various shafts for short linear stroke motions. An additional objective of the testing: coefficient of wear for the service life calculation in the Internet (iglidur® expert).

Conclusion:

The wear characteristics vary from iglidur® material to iglidur® material on different shaft/counter partners during the testing. The results show that iglidur® materials operate with lower wear on hard-anodised aluminium versus mild steel (St37). It is worth noting that each shaft material has a matching iglidur® material that optimises wear, and vice-versa.
