iglide® D, sleeve bearing with flange, mm

  • Low-cost material with silicone
  • Low coefficients of friction at high speeds
  • For low loads
  • Cost-effective
Product description
iglide® D | Low-cost material with silicone
 
  • Low coefficients of friction at high speeds
  • For low loads
  • Cost-effective
  • Vibration-dampening
  • Very low moisture absorption
  • Lubrication and maintenance-free
During the development process of iglide® D as a bearing material, high performance and a very low price were the top requirements. In particular, low coefficients of friction were needed at high speeds when running dry. This material containing silicone achieves excellently low friction values in dry operation and runs with virtually no stick-slip.

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.
