igubal® spherical balls

spherical balls  

igubal® spherical balls are made from high-performance iglide® plastics. Each iglide® material has its own special properties which help determine its suitability for a given application. Currently, igus® offers spherical balls in iglide® L280 as standard, but also iglide® J, J4, R, UW and T500.

Special properties:

Self-lubricating, maintenance-free

Suitable for rotating, oscillating and linear movements

Corrosion resistant

High compressive strength

Lightweight


Material data

iglide® L280 (standard) - extreme wear resistance

iglide® R - low cost, low friction values

iglide® T500 - for high temperatures, resistant to chemicals

iglide® J and iglide® J4 - low friction values, low moisture absorption

iglide® UW for underwater applications


Tolerances

Maintenance-free igubal® spherical balls have an inside diameter tolerance of E10. The shaft should have a tolerance of between h6 and h9.

When to use

When you need a maintenance-free material

When you need high compressive strength

When you need high elasticity

When not to use

When temperatures are over +482°F

When dimensions over 50 mm are needed

When you have rotational speeds in excess of 100 fpm
