iglide® J, flange bearing, mm

  • High wear resistance on (almost) all shafts
  • Very low coefficients of friction in dry operation
  • Vibration-damping
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Best material to use with soft shaft materials
Product description
iglide® - maintenance-free flange bearings
With this design it is possible to use iglide® high performance plain bearings in locations where recommended housing bore tolerances are not possible. Due to the design of the bearing, high loads are possible although there is a minimal precision requirement of the housing.
One main advantage of iglide® J flange bearings is the combination of a low coefficient of friction when running dry and the low stick-slip tendency. With a recommended maximum surface pressure of 5076 psi, iglide® J flange bearings are not suitable for extreme loads.
  • Very good wear resistance
  • Lightweight
  • Self-lubricating
When to use it?
  • When a screwed-on flange bearing is desired
  • When using a clip bearing solution as a plate feed-through is not sufficient
  • When extremely high absorption tolerances are present
  • When the press fit of a press-in bearing is not sufficient to secure the bearing axially
When not to use?
  • When an additional angular alignment is required
  • When a screw connection is not possible
  • When a large guide length is required

Various securing methods are considered depending on the loads. For low radial loads, it is sufficient to mount iglide® flange bearings on one surface simply with two bolts. For higher radial loads, it advisable to support the iglide® flange bearing in a hole. For this hole, large tolerances are permitted, since it serves only as additional support for the iglide® flange bearing. In order to achieve higher radial loads in the bearings, the iglide® flange bearing can be press-fit into a recommended housing bore with H tolerances. The additional bolts ensure the fit of the bearing in the housing. No special tools or equipment are required to install iglide® maintenance-free flange bearings. Even aligning bearings on shafts with multiple bearings is easy during installation.
