Product description
igubal® rod end bearing with female thread
igubal® rod ends are corrosion-resistant and can be used without problems in harsh environments. In moist or wet environments, they are resistant to weak acids and alkalines. Rod ends are also resistant to dirt and dust.
Housing made of igumid FC
Here, the spherical ball is made from iglidur® FC180.

Typical application areas
  • Food industry
  • Beverage industry
  • Packaging industry
The igubal® bearing elements can be used with different tolerances according to each application. They are designed with a large bearing clearance in the standard product, which enables secure operation even under high peripheral speeds. The hole of the inner ring is produced to a standard tolerance range E10. Shafts should also meet recommended tolerances h6 and h9. Check the inner diameter
Coefficient of sliding friction and speed
One important advantage of maintenance-free igubal® spherical bearings is that rapid, rotary movements of a mounted shaft take place directly in the spherical portion, made from iglidur® materials. The benefit of this plastic/steel plain bearing arrangement is that high speeds are possible even in dry operation. Taking the radial loads into account, maximum surface speeds up to 0.5m/s rotating can be attained. In contrast, angular movements of the spherical bearings take place at the spherical outer diameter of the spherical ball. The maintenance-free igubal® bearing elements also permit linear movements of the shaft.

UV resistance
The corrosion resistance of igubal® bearings is of special value for outdoor applications. igubal® bearings are permanently resistant to UV radiation. A small change in colour (dark colouration) of the spherical ball due to UV radiation and other weathering does not affect the mechanical, electrical or thermal properties.
