According to Igus, its Iglidur plastic bearings are now used in seats, steering systems, throttle linkages, transmission, clutch pedals, convertible roofs, diesel exhaust systems and door hinges – saving time and money for many automotive manufacturers.

The Igus bearing range contains more than 35 standard materials, as well as hundreds of special tribological applications.

For example, Iglidur plastic bearings are now commonly used in hinge systems that have to go through the E-Coat paint process and special parts can be supplied that give a finished bearing with literally no clearance at all.

Special parts, even for under-the-bonnet applications where extreme temperatures and harsh environmental conditions are prevalent, can be produced to a customer’s own design and, using fast moulding techniques, delivered in as little as 24 hours.

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.
