igubal® spherical self-aligning bearings

Up to 40% more cost-effective & 80% lighter than metal bearings


igubal® spherical bearings are maintenance-free, self-aligning bearing elements manufactured completely from polymer. Depending on the choice of material, use at temperatures of up to +200°C is possible. Over and above this, the entire igubal® joint system is insensitive to dust and dirt and resistant to corrosion. Thanks to its lubrication-free properties, there are no obstacles to use in liquid media. The igubal® expert will guide you through the few steps necessary to calculate the service life of spherical bearings online.

Applications and Industries:

  • Conveyor belts for food & beverage industry, ie. bottling
  • Heavy duty areas - wood processing, hydraulics, glass
  • Agriculture and dairy industry

Frequently asked questions about igubal®

What is an igubal® spherical bearing?

igubal® is the igus® range of spherical bearings including rod ends, clevis joints and pillow block bearings. 

What material are the igubal® spherical bearings made of?

There is a range of materials that the igubal® range can be made of  so it depends on the application. The standard housing is igumid® G and the balls tend to be iglidur® J or W300. However there are a large range of materials available. 

Are igubal® spherical bearings capable of withstanding the same pressures as a metal version?

This depends on the application however, they have a high tensile strength and can take on high radial loads.
