Video of the Week – igus polymer bearings
Self-lubricating properties to run smoothly and last longer
igus bearings are unique in design; available in variety of polymermaterials, each with different properties, igus can custom design abearing for almost any application.igus polymer materials are composed of a base polymer, fibres andfilling material and a solid lubricant. Thetype of polymer material useddetermines the bearing’s properties; forexample, its resistance to temperatureextremes or chemicals as well as the lifeof the product.One of the best things about iguspolymer bearings is that they are entirelylubricant free. Where there is surface tosurface contact, or any sliding motion, the solid lubricant is alwayspresent, making the polymer bearing entirely self-lubricating. This tribological technology is used throughout the igus bearing range,including the iglidur plain bearings, xiros ball bearings, igubal sphericalbearings, PRT slewing rings and DryLin linear systems.
