For confined spaces and where low weight is crucial, Igus has developed thin-ring bearings that conform to DIN 625. The Xiros plastic ball bearings are suitable for a wide variety of in-vehicle applications – they are self-lubricating and therefore maintenance-free, as well as having very low friction properties.

Temperature, ventilation or chassis dynamics – all of these and more can be adjusted in the car with the turn of a dial. Since weight is minimised to ensure good fuel economy and space is usually at a premium, the new Xiros thin-ring bearings of series 67 and 68 are particularly suitable. Available in two different materials (Xirodur B180 and Xirodur S180) these bearings are offered as standard with internal diameters of between 4 and 30mm. Special dimensions or customer-specific integrated solutions are available upon request. For both Xirodur materials, the balls are available made of stainless steel (1.4401 grade) or, for a completely non-magnetic version, glass. To achieve further weight reductions, balls made of plastic are also possible on request.

The Xiros thin-ring bearings are suitable for application temperatures between -40°C and +80°C. In addition, to them being self-lubricating, they are corrosion-resistant. These bearings have also endured various arduous tests at the igus test laboratory with results indicating that they are suitable for several hundred million cycles within permissible loads.

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.
