igus® has invested substantially into the research and development of its iglide® bearing materials. Inside our 41,000ft2 test lab in Cologne, Germany, igus® engineers run 12,000 bearing tests a year, optimizing our materials for high-speed rotational and linear movements as well as harsh environmental conditions. Due to this extensive testing, iglide® bearings are proven to last 8 times longer than metal components. They also reduce costs by up to 40%. iglide® bearings are vibration damping, resistant to dirt and corrosion (aqueous and acidic), and are embedded with solid lubricants to eliminate the need of external oil or grease. They perform well in high temperatures and under static loads. Materials with low moisture absorption are available as well as custom solutions that meet your unique application requirements.
Lead screw nuts & lead screws from a single source
iglide® bearings used in door hinges and linkage joints are corrosion resistant (aqueous and acidic) and electrically conductive, qualifying them for e-coating and thermal recalibration (tolerance compensation).
iglide® bearings are highly wear resistant, vibration damping and corrosion resistant to transmissions fluids and other liquid agents, qualifying them for use in manual transmission gear shafts.
Smooth and reliable operation in sliding doors and tailgates of vans and SUVs are guaranteed with space-saving designs, lightweight materials and superior performance without maintenance.
Designed to shield cables in the production line from tension and compression, harsh environmental influences and mechanical damage, many customized solutions are available for installation on multi-axes robots as well as in linear assemblies.
