iglide® clip bearings

No Minimum Order Quantity

iglide® clip bearings are designed with a flange on both sides for secure positioning while still allowing shafts to rotate freely when being run through sheet metal plates. The flange diameter on the smaller side ensures that housings with larger tolerances can be secured. The angled slit on the side of each clip bearing provides simple installation from one side, and allows the bearing to open after installation, forming a lining for the bore hole within the metal plate. Additionally, the angled slit provides ample room to compensate for bearing expansion due to temperature or moisture. During expansion, the slit width decreases and changes to minimize bearing clearance. The shaft then secures the clip bearing within the housing, even during axial movement. All of our iglide® clip bearing materials are rigorously tested within our 41,000 square foot test laboratory to ensure long service life and efficient operation.
