igus® energy chains and plastic plain bearings for agricultural engineering

8 times longer service life for agricultural machinery by the use of plastic plain bearings

Especially in agricultural applications, you need solutions that can stand up to rough conditions, such as dirt, dust, heat, shock and edge loads. igus® makes this possible with its energy chains and plastic bearings that are characterised by their outstanding resilience and long service life. These products are used for instance in tractors, disc harrows, fertilisers, hay rakes, field sprayers, seed drills and other agricultural equipment. In many applications, metallic bushings or recirculating ball bearing guides can be replaced by lubrication free polymer plain bearings. We would like to show you how to improve your technology and save costs at the same time.

Your advantages with igus® polymer plain bearings and energy chains:

Dry-running and corrosion-resistant

Resistant to dust and dirt

Extremely durable

Quiet running

Compensates misalignment and deflections

White paper:

Designing a true maintenance-free pivot

Engineers working in the agricultural industry can benefit greatly from implementing true maintenance-free pivots within their machinery. Maintenance-free pivots have several benefits that can help significantly increase efficiency within the agricultural field. Here, we will compare true maintenance-free designs with alternative designs, as well as go into the requirements for creating a true maintenance-free pivot.
