igubal® pressfit bearings: product overview

Pressfit bearing  

The use of pressfit bearings is usually associated with heavier traditional metal bearings, difficult installation, and high costs. Most of the time, maintenance is still necessary long term, and the bearings are only corrosion-resistant in special designs. Often roller bearings or plain bearings malfunction prematurely due to high edge loads, or bearings must be readjusted, reamed, or retrofit to compensate for misalignment.

igubal® pressfit bearings put an end to all of these disadvantages and open up many new possibilities for your engineering design.

Advantages

Easy to install

Extremely cost effective

Lightweight

Strong and durable

Areas of application

Ease of installation makes many different applications possible for igubal® pressfit bearings. They can be used anywhere the self-adjusting feature offers design advantages or helps to simplify assembly.


Tolerances

Maintenance-free igubal® pressfit bearings are meant to be oversized before being pressfit. After proper installation into a recommended housing bore, the inner diameter adjusts to meet our specified tolerances. Please adhere to the specifications for housing bores and recommended shafts sizes. This will help to ensure the optimal performance of igubal® pressfit bearings. Please contact an iglide® technical expert for support, if necessary.

Installation

These igubal® bearings are pressfit into a recommended housing bore and axially secured. An exact orientation of the bearing housing is not necessary, since the pressfit bearing compensates for misalignment.
