iglide® R, sleeve bearing with flange, mm

  • Low-cost material, low wear
  • Good abrasion resistance
  • Low coefficients of friction in dry operation
  • Cost-effective
Product description
iglide® R | Low-cost material, with low coefficients of friction and good wear resistance
  • Good abrasion resistance
  • Low coefficients of friction in dry operation
  • Cost-effective
  • Very little humidity absorption
  • Dry-running and maintenance-free
  • Standard range from stock
The development of the iglide® R as a bearing material focused on high performance and very low cost. Especially in the dry operation low coefficients of friction and wear were to be achieved. Bearings made from iglide® R are selectively supported by a combination of solid lubricants. The PTFE- and silicon-free material achieves extremely low coefficients of friction in dry operation and runs largely free of stick-slip effects.

When to use it?
  • If high wear resistance at low loads is required
  • When a very cost-effective bearing is required
  • When very low coefficients of friction in dry operation are required
  • If edge loads occur
  • If you are looking for low water absorption
  • When PTFE and silicone are not allowed in your application
When not to use?
  • If high pressure occurs
  • If temperatures are constantly higher than +194 °F
  • If best wear resistance is required

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.
Certificates and standards
RoHS compliant
According to 2011/65/EU (RoHS 2)
