Igus has supplied Igubal EGZM-08-60 double-joint pivoting bearings for a single-wheel motorcycle trailer developed by Mono-Trail.

Positioned adjacent to the wheel, these bearings are susceptible to excessive amounts of salt water, dirt and debris.

The spherical balls at either end of the link arm in the Igubal double-joint pivoting bearings are engineered to run dry, which means they self-lubricate and are dirt-repellent and rugged.

In addition, without the need for lubricants or maintenance, grease nipples are eliminated from the design entirely.

The plastic also helps to dampen out the suspension and ensure that the trailer is lightweight.

Two Iglidur G bearings are used in the main lid, which is said to help create a quality feel on closing.

Two more are used in the glove box and another to counteract the flex in the draw bar.

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.
