Self-lubricating PRT slewing ring systems for every application

iglide® PRT slewing ring bearings are ready-to-install rotary joints for self-lubricating, dry operation. The design is based on maintenance-free sliding elements made of tribologically optimized iglide® materials instead of metal rollers or balls. In combination with rings made of lightweight anodized aluminum or stainless steel, these iglide® materials are universally applicable. They can be used in applications with high temperatures, moisture, chemicals and even for food processing.

Benefits:

  • 100% maintenance-free and self-lubricating
  • Corrosion-resistant and hygienic
  • Wear-resistant
  • Resistant to dirt, dust and humidity
  • Very slim design
  • Robust
  • Cost-effective

Application examples

Transport system

The igus® slewing ring bearings are more cost-effective than the previous self-built solution. Moreover, the entire system is suitable for use in clean rooms.

Machine tool manufacturing

Self-lubricating and maintenance-free slewing ring bearings move the control panel. They ensure low coefficients of friction for a low actuation force during pivoting.

Core joining device

With this application for the casting of cylinder heads, self-lubricating bearings are of the utmost importance as quartz sand is used. The solution: iglide® PRT slewing ring bearing.

Moving Head

Moving-head spotlights are often characterized by heavy, metal ball bearing designs. Lightweight and low-maintenance slewing ring bearings from igus® are used in this application.

Assembly station

This assembly station is characterized by continually turning in a circle. Circular movements are always accompanied by great frictional resistance, which means the conventional bearings quickly reach their limits. The solution: maintenance-free and self-lubricating slewing ring bearing from igus®.
