igubal® spherical bearing technology: reduce costs by 40% and weight by 80% when switching from metal

Shock and dirt-resistant high-performance plastics

igubal® spherical bearings are manufactured from high-performance and self-lubricating plastic. The bearing materials are completely maintenance-free and self-aligning, with resistance to dirt, dust and corrosion. Special materials are also available for requirements such as resistance to temperatures up to 392˚F.

 
What are the benefits of igubal® spherical bearing technology?

  • 100% self-lubricating and maintenance-free
  • Extremely cost-effective
  • No external lubrication necessary, resistant to dust and dirt
  • Corrosion-resistant, can be used in liquid
  • Vibration-dampening
  • Inner rings set in housings with very little clearance
  • Lightweight
  • Depending on material, resistant temperatures up to 392°F
  • Delivery within 24 - 48 hrs.
  • No minimum order quantity
  • Calculable service life
