iglidur® plain bearings are ideal where there is friction. Applications where there needs to be no contact on the housing from the shaft. Thanks to the large range of materials for the plain bearings there are many industries that they are suitable for. Industries such as Agricultural, Food & Packagaing, Automation, Aviation and many more
You can reduce costs in your applications by changing your metal bearing to an igus® plain bearing. Agricultural applications often find that due to being outdoors, the metal bearing deteriorates and by replacing them with materials such as iglidur TX1 or Q290 will not only allow you to predict the lifetime and therefore predict the maintenance.
In more than 12,000 individuals tests a year on over 200 test rigs in the igus® test laboratory, all materials are thoroughly tested. The findings go into a unique knowledge database on the tribology of maintenance-free plastic plain bearings. This database enables us to select the ideal iglidur® plain bearing for our customers depending on the application and to calculate its anticipated service life.
This is dependent on the application. Mostly, igus® plastic bearings do not need to be stronger than metal bearings, but they will outlast them. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for some technical help or ring 01604 677240.
