Iglidur A350 data sheet - .PDF file.

igus is offering a range of bearing products that are blue in colour for easier detection in the food and drink industry. The iglidur A350 polymer plain bearing material is FDA approved (Food and Drug Administration, US) and the igubal polymer material can also be recognised by metal detectors; both materials are manufactured completely from tribo-optimised plastic.

Blue-coloured products are now widely used in food preparation areas and large-scale mass-produced food lines as the colour is noticeable but does not occur frequently in nature.

The igus iglidur A350 polymer plain bearing material is FDA approved, which means that it can touch food and, should, in the unlikely event that particles contaminate food, be ingested without causing harm to the person. It is ideal for applications in the food, packaging and bottle-filling industries that undergo regular steam and chemical cleaning processes. 

For use in the food and drink industry, a blue variant of the igus igubal range is made of detectable plastic. When these special igubal bearings are fitted to a machine, there is no possibility of any igubal parts contaminating the end product when a metal detector is fitted on the automated production line.

Key product features

iglidur A350 polymer plain bearing material

  • FDA approved
  • Highly wear resistant
  • Can handle long-term temperature exposure up to 180°C
  • Resistant to a variety of chemicals and other liquid media
  • Ideal for applications in the food, packaging and bottle-filling industries that undergo regular steam and chemical cleaning processes
  • Delivers low coefficients of friction
  • Corrosion resistant, lubrication and maintenance free

igubal polymer material

  • Range includes lubricant- and maintenance-free rod-end bearings and clevis joints, flange, pivoting and pillow-block bearings, which are suitable for dry use at application temperatures ranging from -30°C to 80°C
  • They can run in liquids as well as chemicals, and are corrosion resistant, so are not adversely affected by regular washdowns
  • In comparison with traditional metallic bearings, the igubal range offers better damping characteristics since the specially developed plastic material absorbs vibrations more effectively

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
