Product description
igubal® rod ends with female thread

igubal® rod end bearings are corrosion-free and can be used without problems even under harsh conditions. In humid or wet environments, they are resistant to weak acids and alkalis. The resistance to dirt and dust should also be noted.

Typical applications
  • Food industry
  • Beverage industry
  • Packaging industry
igubal® bearing elements can be used with different tolerances according to each application. They are designed with a large clearance in the standard product, which enables a secure operation even under high peripheral speeds. The hole of the spherical ball is produced to a standard tolerance range E10. Shafts should also meet recommended tolerances h6 and h9. Check the inner diameter

Dynamic coefficients of friction and speeds

An important advantage of the maintenance-free igubal® bearing elements is that fast rotational movements of the supported shaft take place directly in the bearing spherical ball made of iglide® materials. The advantage therefore lies in the plastic vs. steel relationship. Polymer produces lower friction and permits high speeds, even in dry operation. Taking the radial loads into account, maximum surface speeds up to 0.5m/s rotating can be attained. By contrast, rotations of the shaft are supported directly in the inner diameter of the spherical portion. The maintenance-free igubal® bearing elements also readily permit linear shaft movements.

UV resistance

The corrosion resistance of igubal® bearing elements makes them particularly interesting for outdoor use. igubal® bearings are permanently resistant to UV radiation. A small change in color (dark coloration) of the spherical ball due to UV radiation does not affect the mechanical, electrical or thermal properties.
