Bearings, shafting, linear guides and cable carriers for the agricultural industry

Design efficient and long-lasting agricultural machinery with highly engineered, maintenance-free plastic components from igus®. Our durable iglide® bearing materials, embedded with solid lubricants for dry-running operation, can absorb high shock and impact loads.  They’re also resistant to dirt, chemicals and corrosion.

We offer plain bearings, shafting, self-aligning bearings, linear bearings, linear actuators, and lead screws and nuts that can be used in a variety of agricultural applications, including tractor cabins and doors, disc harrows, fertilizer spreaders, hay rakes, and more. igus® also offers complete bearing assemblies, which include GFK shafting, a nitrided pin with greater corrosion resistance than nickel, zinc and steel.

In addition to bearings, we offer cable management solutions guaranteed to last up to 36 months. e-chain® cable carriers come in a variety of sizes ranging from 5mm inner height for the smallest installation spaces. chainflex® flexible cables are designed for flexing and can handle any type of motion.

All igus® products are rigorously tested each year inside our 41,000 sq. ft. lab in Cologne, Germany, allowing for extended, predictable service lives.
