Maintenance free, light weight, dry running, low wear, corrosion free: these are just some of the features of iglidur plastic plain bearings but what else is interesting is how igus achieves this.
igus has come a long way since it began in 1964, when it first started to produce complex technical polymer components. From its humble beginnings in a double garage in Cologne, igus has grown dramatically; today it has a large tool making facility and experimental laboratory within its plant where igus engineers can test, experiment and manufacture its unique range of plain bearings. About 100 new plastic compounds are developed every year and a steady stream of new mould tools built to maintain the constant flow of new and innovative products.
iglidur bearings have universal applications; their technical properties include low coefficients of friction, resilience to temperature extremes and harsh chemicals, FDA compliance, and electrical conductivity or insulation. Additionally, over the years igus has built up a comprehensive database of all the polymer material properties resulting in the famous “Lifetime Calculator”. This database predicts the expected service life of the application, allowing igus to offer the optimum solution to every customer.
iglidur plastic plain bearings are a fit and forget solution, they help to improve application performance and are available ex stock in 24 hours or today.
