Smart bearings technology

Hard on the outside, Smart on the inside

Test & creation of the 3D printing i.Sense bearing

  • Printed from 2 materials: igus tribo filament (white) and an especially conductive material (black)
  • The i.Sense technology can be implemented on any wear-resistant part with a minimum wall thickness of 2.5mm

i.Sense Sensors

  • Sensor for wear in drylin T linear systems (DLT.W)
  • Wear monitoring (DLW.W)
  • Integrated wear measurement (i.Sense plain bearing)
  • Sensor for wear in PRT slewing ring bearing (PRT. W)
