Parts for the
Marine Industry

Water-resistant parts for sportboats, sailboats, etc. in the marine industry

iglide® plastic bushings and drylin® linear plain bearings are perfectly suited for applications in the marine industry. They are embedded with solid lubricants, which eliminate the need for external oil or grease, are corrosion resistant and maintenance-free. Materials with extremely low moisture absorption rates are also available. You can use the igus® online lifetime calculation tools and product finders  to help determine suitable materials for your project. While linear ball bearings require hardened steel and stainless shafting, typically 420 or 440 series, plain bearings from igus® can work perfectly on 304 or 316 materials – both of which are superior in wet and saltwater applications. dryspin® lead screws and plastic nuts made from the same engineered polymer materials as drylin® linear bearings also excel in marine applications. These components combined with linear slides are available as one-piece, bolt-on linear actuator solutions, complete with IP-65 and 68-rated NEMA-framed stepper motors and 300-series stainless lead screws.
