Our durable iglide® bearing materials, embedded with solid lubricants for dry-running operation, can withstand high edge loads and surface pressures up to 36,260 psi. They’re also resistant to dirt, dust and corrosion. iglide® bearings work best with GKF shafting, which helps extend their lifetimes by up to 40-60%. Additionally, we offer cable management solutions guaranteed to last up to 36 months. e-chain® cable carriers are resistant to shock, vibration, corrosion and UV rays. They can withstand loads of up to 403 lbs/ft. chainflex® flexible cables resist a range of dangerous conditions, such as extreme temperatures and oil, and can handle any type of motion, including horizontal and torsional. All igus® products are rigorously tested each year for quality inside our 41,000ft2 test lab. The test results are added to the database behind our service life calculators, which you can use to predict the service life of our products based on the parameters of your application.
iglide® plain bearings replaced composite bearings in the joints of a high dump bucket. They exceeded the required service life, required no maintenance, reduced weight and were about 40% more cost-effective than previous versions.
E4 e-chain® cable carriers resistant to vibration and dirt were used in a tunnel drilling machine. In their small installation space, the carriers were exposed to extremely harsh environmental conditions.
The company Ets Payant created a pulley module that can move soil out of pits that are up to 65 meters deep. All components used had to withstand severe impacts, weathering effects, and a lot of dust, which was no problem for iglide® bearings.
