iglide® GLW | Low-cost material for high quantities

  • Applications with static loads
  • Cost-effective
  • Dirt-resistant
  • Resistant to vibrations
  • Lubrication and maintenance-free
We can offer our customers bearings made from the material iglide® GLW as an alternative to iglide® G300 for high volume applications. Featuring similar mechanical designed as iglide® G300, iglide® GLW plain bearings are primarily recommended for static loads. With regard to these applications, in which the dynamic properties of iglide® G300 to a large extent are unimportant, iglide® GLW presents a very cost-effective alternative.

Tolerances and measurement system
The installation dimensions and tolerances of the iglide® plain bearings are a function of the material and wall thicknesses. For each material, the moisture absorption and the thermal expansion are imperative. Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be designed with a minimal amount of tolerance. For wall thickness, the rule is: The thicker the bearings are, the larger the tolerances must be.
Testing methods
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 prevented.
