Product overview

igubal® self-aligning, lubrication-free bearings made from high-performance plastics


The igubal® range offers a complete line of self-aligning bearings, including: spherical bearings, pillow blocks, rod ends, clevis joints, and flange bearings.

igubal® bearings are easy to install and allow you to compensate for misalignment. They are also made from high-performance, low cost plastics, which have excellent vibration dampening properties, are lubrication-free, and operate in water or chemicals.


The resistance of igubal® bearings to dirt and dust makes them ideal for applications where a standard greased bearing would not be suitable.


Compared to their metal counterparts, igubal® weighs up to 80% less and can help to save on installation space due to being low profile. The maintenance-free aspect also helps to keep costs down.
