  • Extremely long service life under extreme conditions
Product description
iglide® Z | Resistant to wear and impact even at high loads and temperatures
 
  • Excellent wear resistance especially with high loads
  • High thermal resistance
  • For extreme loads
  • For high surface speeds
  • Resistant to edge loads
  • Self-lubricating and maintenance-free
  • Standard range from stock
Extremely high compressive strength coupled with high elasticity enables iglide® Z bearings to attain their prominent properties in association with soft shafts, edge loads and impacts. The bearings are at the same time suitable for temperatures up to +482 °F.
 
Typical application areas

When to use it?
  • For continuous temperatures up to +482 °F long-term or + 590°F short-term
  • When high wear resistance is required especially under high radial loads
  • For high surface speeds
  • For edge loading in connection with high surface pressures
When not to use?
  • For low loads and temperatures
  • When a cost-effective general purpose bearing is required
  • When electrically conductive bearings are needed

Tolerances and measurement system
The installation dimensions and tolerances of the iglide® plain bearings are a function of the material and wall thicknesses. For each material, the moisture absorption and the thermal expansion are imperative. Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be designed with a minimal amount of tolerance. For wall thickness, the rule is: The thicker the bearings are, the larger the tolerances must be.
Testing methods
 
Assembly
iglide® bearings are press-fit bearings. The inner diameter adjusts only after press-fit in the proper housing bore with a recommended tolerance. The before press-fit oversized dimension can be up to 2% of the inner diameter. In this manner, the secure press-fitting of the bearing is achieved. Axial or radial shifts in the housing are also prevented.
