igus® dirt-resistant, self-lubricating 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® dry-running, maintenance-free and self-lubricating 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.
