xiros plastic ball bearings require no external lubrication are corrosion resistant (when used with glass or plastic balls) and operate quietly making them a cost-effective alternative to steel ball bearings Comprised of a tribopolymer blend the all-plastic components are lightweight chemical resistant and non-magnetic and can safely be used in medical or food processing environments With more than 6 000 metric and inch sizes and styles available from stock igus supplies cost-effective precise solutions for a wide array of application criteria right off the shelf The bearing selection process requires a much deeper analysis than just a choice of plastic vs bronze steel or ball bearings

Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be designed with a minimal bearing clearance The rule of thumb for wall thickness: the thicker the wall of the bearings the larger the clearances must be Testing methods Assembly iglidur plain bearings are press-fit bearings

However not all plastic plain bearing materials are the same In this article Robert Dumayne director igus discusses how the choice of bearing material can affect the performance and service life of plain linear bearings Plastic plain linear bearings have been widely used in industrial applications for many years They are relatively inexpensive in comparison with recirculating ball

With more than 6 000 metric and inch sizes and styles available from stock igus supplies cost-effective precise solutions for a wide array of application criteria right off the shelf The bearing selection process requires a much deeper analysis than just a choice of plastic vs bronze steel or ball bearings

The use of special plastics as the housing material and also for the bearing spherical ball make igubal spherical bearings an ideal component when increased vibration damping is required Longer service lives can frequently be achieved by using igubal spherical bearings particularly on applications with high-frequency oscillations and

Aug 28 2018Plain bearings are not only used as simple press-fit bearings but also increasingly in special forms in some instances such as in the solar industry they are exposed to UV radiation for long periods of time For such special applications Treotham offers the long-lasting high-performance plastic iglidur J from igus

Anything machined from the bar stock automatically possesses the material properties attributable to all igus plastics: self-lubricating zero maintenance dirt and dust resistance low wear low friction and more The machined plastic part will also have a predictable life when used as a bearing

The lubrication-free iglidur plain bearings available from Treotham are made of high-performance plastics and can effectively resist fungi and bacteria The mould-resistant properties of igus' polymer plain bearings make them suitable for use in ventilation applications in the building vehicle and aircraft industries by ensuring clean air

iglide bearings are press-fit bearings The inner diameter adjusts only after press-fit in the proper housing bore with a recommended tolerance The before press-fit oversized dimension can be up to 2% of the inner diameter In this manner the secure press-fitting of the bearing is achieved Axial or radial shifts in the housing are also
