igubal® self-aligning bearing application examples

Vibration dampening, corrosion resistant

The igubal® self-aligning bearing range, which incorporates rod ends, clevis joints, flange bearings, pressfit bearings and pillow blocks, can be used in the most demanding applications.

The self-aligning bearings are corrosion resistant despite humid or wet conditions and can withstand temperatures ranging from between -22 to +176 °F. They are injection molded from high performance, low cost iglide® plastics, which are completely insensitive to dirt and dust.
