Video of the Week – igus robust iglidurbearings help smooth ride
Lubricant-free polymer bearings require no maintenanceby Rickshaw drivers
In Bangalore and many other Indiancities motorised taxi rickshaws arefitted with lubricant-free polymerbearings from
. These are used asmain hub bearings on the anti-divedevice as well as at other bearingpoints. The three-wheeled vehicles have a special mechanism that preventsfalling over during braking. This anti-dive device is a connectionmechanism with four rods. The main hub at this connection is guidedby an iglidur RN56 self-lubricating bearing. The load on the bearing is the load of the vehicle plus the weight of thepassengers and the inertia forces, making around three tonnes in total,with a pivoting motion. Previously, a bronze bushing with lubricationgrooves and punched holes with graphite filling at the edge were beingused. The drivers reported that lubrication regularly failed, whichmeant the bearings wore out quickly and the clearance increased.Other problems prevalent were loud noises, heavy juddering of thehandlebars or even tilting of the rickshaw during braking.
