95-million cycles for spherical bearings

A manufacturer of equipment producing Blu-ray discs and CDs/DVDs uses igubal® rod end bearings in the coating module of its machine.

During a bench test performed by the company, the rod ends operated for more than 95-million cycles without any maintenance issues.

The bearings’ lightweight, space-saving design was also a big advantage.

igubal® spherical bearings are made entirely of high-performance plastics, which makes them maintenance-free and cost-effective. They can handle high loads and are 80% lighter than conventional steel spherical bearings.

igus®’ line of igubal® spherical bearings are available in various designs and configurations, including rod ends, clevis joints, flange bearings, pivot bearings and pillow blocks.
