Due to the polymers used, all xiros ball bearings are permanently maintenance-free and do not require any additional lubrication.
The product range of the xiros polymer ball bearings is characterised by a great variety of designs, materials and sizes according to DIN 625. Small ball bearings are used in model making and medical technology, amongst others. xiros polymer ball bearings are successfully used in many applications - ball bearings with special shapes designed according to customer requirements are also part of the product range.
Predictable service life Due to extensive testing in the xiros test laboratory, the service life of igus ball bearings can be precisely predicted even if used in difficult conditions - also in the case of individual applications.
Metal ball bearings are robust - and heavy. xiros ball bearings offer the perfect alternative for many applications as plastic ball bearings are lightweight, reliable and durable.
Plastic ball bearings are often used in the automotive industry and aerospace engineering. Wherever lightweight is important, our light plastic ball bearings are perfect.
Thanks to the polymers developed by igus for extreme conditions, igus offers ball bearings that are resistant to both cold and hot temperatures. Due to these properties, expensive special lubricants for metal bearings are not necessary.
The performance of these polymer ball bearings was tested and confirmed as part of numerous tests in the xiros test laboratory, also under extreme cold up to -100°C.
For applications operating in great heat, igus offers high-temperature ball bearings with thermal resistance up to +150°C when used long-term.
Ball bearings made of FDA-compliant plastics are used whenever parts come into contact with food, or in sterile areas.
Thanks to the plastics with FDA approval developed by igus, which also do without additional lubrication, xiros ball bearings are perfectly suited for applications in the food industry and medical technology.
Wherever it is necessary to avoid metal, the non-magnetic, electrically insulated polymer ball bearings are always the first choice. In the xiros product range, you can find both purely polymer ball bearings and also versions with balls made of glass.
The product range also includes conductive and detectable polymer ball bearings.
The chemical-resistant plastics developed by igus enable a smooth running of xiros ball bearings, even when they make contact with aggressive chemicals. The specified durability and calculated service life are based on data from our test laboratory.
The chemical-resistant plastic ball bearings do without expensive special lubricants that are needed in applications exposed to aggressive chemicals.
