Igus is currently exhibiting its maintenance-free bearings at Subcon 2013, which runs until 6 June 2013 at the NEC in Birmingham.

Visitors to Stand G20 in Hall 3 will be able to see live demonstrations of Igus’s range of plain, spherical and linear bearings.

Products and services

Iglidur plastic bearings

  • These are designed to be reliable, maintenance free and cost effective.
  • They offer high wear resistance and a low coefficient of friction and can replace more costly alternatives in a variety of applications.
  • The plastic bearings are chemical and corrosion resistant.
  • They do not require any lubrication, enabling engineers to improve the uptime of equipment and to reduce maintenance and lubrications costs.

Drylin E actuators with polymer bearings and NEMA-certified motors

  • These linear drives are lubricant and maintenance free, compact and extremely light and quiet.
  • The Drylin E SAW-0630 linear axis is said to be ideal for simple adjustments, feed movements and the handling of lightweight components.
  • The SAW-0630 is available with a trapezoidal or high-helix thread leadscrew and offers pitches from 1.5mm to 15mm.

Speedigus manufacturing services

  • Igus can offer designers solutions ranging from concept or prototype or from low-volume to high-volume parts. 
  • The Speedigus offering includes Speedimold, a rapid prototyping and injection moulding service, Speedicut, a rapid machining service, and Speedifit, which makes it as easy as possible for customers to realise cost-effective bespoke solutions.
  • Speedifit is a new manufacturing service that supplies bespoke complete bearing assemblies, enabling customers to save time and money. 

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.
