Plain bearings, linear guides and coupling joints by igus have been designed for dynamic use and tough environments. The high-performance plastics in use withstand extreme temperatures, vibrations, shocks, dirt and corrosion. They are lubrication-free, durable, maintenance-free and quiet; in addition, the low weight of the plastic bearings leads to a higher performance of the entire construction and a reduction in CO2 emissions.
In the course of e-mobility and hence quieter motors, requirements regarding components and modules have increased: they have to be as noiseless as possible and ideally have dampening properties (BSR: buzz, squeak and rattle). Noises always arise where components interact with each other and friction occurs. igus plastics minimise coefficients of friction and hence result in less wear and a quieter operation.
Tech up, cost down: with the CRM rotary module: can be rotated by 6480°, for rotating systems in or on the vehicle. New sizes and versions of our e-chains. Flexible and temperature-resistant plain bearings, coupling joints in extremely dirty environments and the drylin NTP telescopic guide made of 100% iglidur polymer material.

In the industry's largest test laboratory for plastics iglidur plain bearings, drylin linear technology and igubal coupling joints are put through their paces. The focus is on the examination of the tribological properties of different material pairings and the testing of assemblies. The results are entered into our tools to calculate service life and allow for precise predictions regarding their durability.
Upon request, igus carries out customer tests so as to check the use of the products under completely unique conditions.
iglidur plain bearings are resistant to high static loads up to 120 MPa without problems. To compensate tolerances, the plain bearings use the high temperatures for drying after the e-coating.
iglidur plain bearings are used in, e.g. door and multiple-joint hinges, as they are corrosion-free, compensate tolerances, are suitable for e-coating and run silently.
iglidur plain bearings are not only media-resistant, they also have an advantage over ceramic and carbon-graphite bearings in terms of cost. They operate silently and, due to hydrodynamic lubrication, easily cope with high surface speeds.
