igus® dirt-resistant, dry-running slewing ring ball bearings absorb high axial forces and are used in the food and chemical industry where they are exposed to dirty environments and machine washdowns on a regular basis. Available with stainless-steel balls or glass balls (borosilicate glass), they are a cost-effective and FDA-compliant alternative to metal bearings. Available with different diameters from extra-small to extra-large.
Special customer requests and requirements can be the driving force for innovation. For example, the largest slewing ring ball bearing in the world, designed and manufactured by igus®, measures 400 millimeters in inner diameter, 600 millimeters in outer diameter and 40 millimeters in height.
xiros® maintenance-free and dry-running plastic ball bearings are known for their low-friction operation. The XXL slewing ring ball bearing with a low drive torque of 11 ft/lb (15 Nm) can rotate a load of 550 lbs (250 kg). As they were designed for food processing environments, these bearings tolerate regular washdowns.
xiros plastic ball bearings are tested in the industry's largest test laboratory. Learn more about our ball bearings testing here.
