iglidur® AB, sleeve bearing with flange

  • Low humidity absorption
  • Antibacterial
Product description
iglidur® AB | The first antibacterial iglidur® bearing
Plain bearings made from iglidur® AB help to reduce the microbial load in bearing points that are difficult to access. iglidur® AB was specially developed for applications in areas with hygienic requirements. These types
of applications often involve manually actuated pivoting units (doors, furniture in the medical sector, etc.). The material reduces the level of bacterial contamination but – like all "anti-bacterial" materials – is not a substitute for adequate hygienic measures.
 
Typical application areas
  • Medical technology
  • Laboratory technology
  • Ventilation systems
  • Sanitary furniture and equipment
  • Bearings of patient and care furniture
You will find plenty of additional application areas at our Industry solutions
 
 
When to use it?
  • When bearing points must meet high
    hygienic standards
  • When you are looking for a universal bearing
    for manually actuated applications
  • When you are looking for a bearing for
    low and medium loads
When not to use?
  • When a highly wear resistant bearing
    is required for continuous dry operation
  • When you are looking for a bearing that conforms to the EU
    10/2011 EC Directive and/or the FDA requirements
    for repeated contact with foodstuffs
  • When you are looking for a bearing
    with the highest possible universal media resistance

Tolerances and measurement system
The installation dimensions and tolerances of the iglidur® plain bearings are a function of the material and wall thicknesses. For each material, the moisture absorption and the thermal expansion are imperative. Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be designed with a minimal amount of tolerance. For wall thickness, the rule is: The thicker the bearings are, the larger the tolerances must be.
Testing methods
 
Assembly
iglidur® bearings are press-fit bearings. The inner diameter adjusts only after press-fit in the proper housing bore with a recommended tolerance. The before press-fit oversized dimension can be up to 2% of the inner diameter. In this manner, the secure press-fitting of the bearing is achieved. Axial or radial shifts in the housing are also prevented.
