The use of pressfit bearings is usually associated with heavier traditional metal bearings, difficult installation, and high costs. Most of the time, maintenance is still necessary long term, and the bearings are only corrosion-resistant in special designs. Often roller bearings or plain bearings malfunction prematurely due to high edge loads, or bearings must be readjusted, reamed, or retrofit to compensate for misalignment.
igubal® pressfit bearings put an end to all of these disadvantages and open up many new possibilities for your engineering design.
Easy to install
Extremely cost effective
Strong and durable
Ease of installation makes many different applications possible for igubal® pressfit bearings. They can be used anywhere the self-adjusting feature offers design advantages or helps to simplify assembly.
Maintenance-free igubal® pressfit bearings are meant to be oversized before being pressfit. After proper installation into a recommended housing bore, the inner diameter adjusts to meet our specified tolerances. Please adhere to the specifications for housing bores and recommended shafts sizes. This will help to ensure the optimal performance of igubal® pressfit bearings. Please contact an iglide® technical expert for support, if necessary.
These igubal® bearings are pressfit into a recommended housing bore and axially secured. An exact orientation of the bearing housing is not necessary, since the pressfit bearing compensates for misalignment.
igubal® pressfit bearings are manufactured according to DIN ISO 12240 dimensional series K and E.
The product range provides dimensions from 0.19 to 1.2" (3 to 30 mm). Please contact us if you need other dimensions.
