Igus has launched a heavy-duty version of its robust Igubal clip spherical bearing. The easy-to-fit bearing can withstand high loads. It provides exceptional rotational, linear or swivelling movements and, as it is plastic, it does not require regular maintenance. As a result, downtime is avoided and the low weight ensures energy-efficient operation.

Igubal clip spherical bearings.

The heavy-duty plastic bearings are corrosion free, chemical resistant and impervious against dirt and dust, which means they are reliable and provide a long life in arduous environments.

The range has been developed for machines and plant systems that have a minimum of available space and the cost-effective bearings can be fitted easily, simply clipping into place with no additional axial securing.

They are ideal for applications where the bearing position is accessible from one side only, for example in closed machine housings or in a façade. 

Extremely compact and designed to be fitted into sheets with a thickness of 4–8mm, the lightweight bearings can absorb extremely high loads of up to 12.5kN radially and 350N axially. The pretension of collar and locating lug compensates the clearance in two axes.

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.
