The Xiros range of ball bearings from Igus is suitable for applications including medical equipment, pumps, measurement machines and transport and conveying technology, particularly in the chemical, food, laboratory and packaging industries.

There are five Xiros ball bearing materials available in a range of dimensions and designs, all available from stock within 24 hours.

Design engineers can also predict the expected lifetime of the ball bearing via the Xiros Lifetime Calculator, which is available to use online.

Key benefits

  • Xiros polymer ball bearings are lubricant and maintenance free.
  • The bearings can endure temperatures of up to 150°C.
  • They are corrosion resistant and can be washed and cleaned.
  • The bearings are non-magnetic and feature a lightweight design.
  • They have very good friction coefficients and offer a long service life.

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.
