Igus has introduced the Iglidur PRT slewing ring, which is designed to support high-load rotational applications such as machine tools, clean rooms, assembly lines, wind turbines, production facilities and robots.

It uses two self-lubricating plastic sliding pads in place of the ball bearings. The plastic bearing pads contain a solid lubricant; as such, additional lubrication is not needed and the need for maintenance is eliminated.

The Iglidur PRT slewing-ring bearing system is available in a range of sizes, with inside diameters of 20mm, 30mm, 50mm, 60mm, 100mm, 150mm, 200mm and 300mm.

Key benefits

  • The PRT slewing ring is reliable, cost effective, quiet, wear resistant and maintenance free.
  • The device enables OEMs to improve the performance of their machines, while saving costs.
  • All housing parts are made of aluminium with stainless steel screws, meaning the system is robust.
  • The system is resistant to chemicals and features low moisture absorption and good vibration dampening properties.

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.
