iglide® TX1 plain bearings stand for very high load capacity with high radial loads combined with good abrasion resistance. The special design on the one hand ensures high dimensional stability through the long fiber winding, and on the other hand a lubrication- and maintenance-free operation is possible thanks to solid lubricants. High resistance to dirt and media round off the property profile.
With increasing temperatures, the compressive strength of iglide® TX1 plain bearings decreases. Fig. 02 clarifies this connection. With the short-term permitted application temperature of +338 °F, the permitted surface pressure still amounts to 14,500 psi. Maximum recommended surface pressure represents a mechanical material parameter. Tribological conclusions cannot be drawn from it.
Typical applications for iglide® TX1 plain bearings are highly loaded swiveling motion with rather low speeds. Independently of that, relatively high speeds are still attainable. The speeds stated in Table 03 are limit values for the low bearing loads. They say nothing about the wear resistance in these parameters.
iglide® TX1 is a very temperature-resistant material. The upper long-term application temperature of 248°F allows extensive use, e.g. in typical applications in the agricultural, commercial vehicle or construction vehicle sector. The press-in and push-out forces of iglide® TX1 plain bearings are at a very high level over the entire temperature range, which makes an additional axial securing usually unnecessary. Some decrease to a still very high level can be observed from +212°F, which is why an axial locking can be recommended in the individual case from this temperature level on. The additional friction heat in the bearing system should be considered in the temperature observations.
|Coefficients of friction µ||0,09 - 0,37||0,09||0,04||0,04|
Please note that a gliding partner with a rough surface finish will increase the friction. Extremely smooth shafts can likewise increase the coefficient of friction. We recommend shaft surface finishes (Ra) of 0.4 to a maximum of 0.7 µm. The coefficient of friction of iglide® TX1 plain bearings also depends to a large extent on the speed and load. With increasing surface speed, the friction coefficient increases rapidly. However, with load the coefficient of friction decreases continuously.
Generally, we recommend the use of hardened shafts for use in high load applications. This is especially true when using iglide® TX1. But still acceptable wear rates are also achieved on soft shafts in the high load swivel below 14,500 psi. Comparison of the wear rate in rotation and swiveling in Fig. 07 shows that the strength of iglide® TX1 lies in the highly loaded swivel.

iglide® TX1 plain bearings are standard bearings for shafts with h-tolerance (recommended minimum h9). The bearings are designed for press-fit in a housing with h7 tolerance. After the installation in a housing with nominal diameter, the inner diameter of the bearing automatically adjusts as stated in the standard case.
