Whether for very small installation spaces or in very large ones. From a quantity of one to millions every month. Nothing is too much for igus. All our customers with their individual requirements and needs are of equal importance.
Due to many, many applications, ideas and designs, we are faced with the same challenge over and over again: what can the solution look like? How can we deal with the problem?
As a result, we work together to create new products every year - solutions to problems. Many of them make it beyond the status of an individual customer project into production. This is the igus spring news. In 2021 as well - perhaps particularly in 2021, when a lot of things are changing in the world and many customers are looking for alternatives.
Are you also looking for an alternative? – We will be happy to provide you with expert advice for free and without obligation!
Bearings of the so-called tracking systems in photovoltaic plants withstand extremely adverse environmental conditions. iglidur P UV was developed for this application. The special composition ensures high resistance to ultraviolet rays and ensures that iglidur P UV plain bearings function for a very long time and with the lowest possible loss of strength.
The cathodic dip painting places special demands on the stability of the material and only works if it is sufficiently electrically conductive. iglidur F300 offers very good conductivity for plastics. It also offers mechanical and thermal stability and good durability.
The new iglidur TX2 with integrated felt seal was developed for applications in very harsh environments, where high loads, dirt and dust occur. Due to the special shape of the bearings, the inserted seal is fixed in the component and protects the bearing position from dirt ingress.
The new iglidur M210 was specifically developed for the application for medium pivoting loads. In addition, special attention was paid during development to ensure the material can be used for injection-moulded thick-walled bearings. Therefore iglidur M210 is well-suited for applications in which thick-walled bearings are used or replaced, which are at the same time as robust as possible.
The new iglidur M260 was specifically developed for use in harsh environments. In addition, special attention was paid during development to ensure that the material can be used for injection-moulded thick-walled bearings. Therefore iglidur M260 is well-suited for applications in which thick-walled bearings are used or replaced, which are at the same time as robust as possible.
The new coating formulation iglidur® IC-07 was optimised in particular regarding its chemical resistance, and protects metal surfaces not only against friction and wear, but also against aggressive chemicals.
The new iglidur® TX2 plain bushings were developed for use in particularly highly loaded bearing locations. Due to its incorporated solid lubricants, the high-strength, wound construction ensures for a low-friction and maintenance-free operation - entirely without external lubrication.
Extremely high compressive strength coupled with high elasticity enables iglidur® Z4 bearings to attain their prominent features in association with soft shafts, edge loads and impacts. At the same time, the bearings are suitable for temperatures up to +250°C. iglidur® Z4 was developed in particular for especially price-sensitive applications where the bearing material still had to meet high requirements.
iglidur® GKF shafts are optimised for use in combination with dry-running plain bearings, and increase the service life of your bearing locations. GKF shafts are an alternative to galvanised or chromed shafts, and offer a special protection against corrosion and wear. They have been developed especially for the use in agricultural and forestry machines as well as for construction machinery and utility vehicles.
With the igus® FastLine service, you receive customised injection-moulded plain bearings and thrust washers in a maximum of seven days. Apart from the immediate price indication, the iglidur® plain bearing designer shows you the manufacturing costs of our other production methods.
H3 is a new material in the iglidur H family. H3 sets new standards with its outstanding robustness. This material is more robust than comparable materials and has a longer service life than iglidur H1.
AX500 is conductive and has an even lower coefficient of wear than its predecessor. The material was specially developed for the food industry and can therefore be used in contact with food products.
iglidur AC500 is a further development of the A500 material, which is detectable and has an optimised service life. Plain bearings made of AC500 have been certified for use in direct contact with food.
When electrical conductivity is important and electrostatic charging of the components has to be avoided, iglidur F3 is exactly the right choice. As the material contains incorporated solid lubricants, the rollers can be used without any additional lubricants and the maintenance associated with them.
The SG03 felt seal prevents the ingress of dirt and dust into the bearing and thus protects the bearing itself and the shaft against wear and early failure.
iglidur® isense plain bearings indicate their wear status in good time. If a bearing needs to be changed, the system is informed about it.
