Igus UK has launched a heavy-duty version of its Igubal clip spherical bearing suitable for applications where the bearing position is accessible from one side only — such as in closed machine housings or in a façade.

The new, cost-effective bearing has been developed for machines and plant systems that have a minimum of available space.

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

Key benefits

  • The easy-to-fit heavy-duty bearing withstands high loads and provides excellent rotational, linear or swivelling movements.
  • As the bearing is plastic, it does not require regular maintenance; as a result, downtime is avoided.
  • The bearing’s low weight ensures energy-efficient operation.
  • The heavy-duty bearing is corrosion free, chemical resistant and impervious against dirt and dust, which means it can operate in arduous environments.
  • The bearing can be fitted easily, simply clipping into place with no additional axial securing.

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.
