Igus polymer bearings are entirely lubricant free, as where there is surface-to-surface contact or any sliding motion, the solid lubricant is always present, making for long service life.

Igus bearings are available in variety of polymer materials, each with different properties, and can be custom designed for almost any application.

The company’s polymer materials are composed of a base polymer, fibres and filling material and a solid lubricant.

The type of polymer material used determines the bearing’s properties – its resistance to temperature extremes or chemicals, for example, as well as the life of the product.

The self-lubricating tribological technology is used throughout the Igus bearing range, including the Iglidur plain bearings, Xiros ball bearings, Igubal spherical bearings, PRT slewing rings and Drylin linear systems.

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.
