igubal® pillow block bearings
igubal® pillow block bearings are very easy to install bearing units which are able to compensate alignment errors and prevent edge pressure.
The housing is made from igumid G, an extremely impact-resistant, long-fibre-reinforced polymer. Suitable for temperatures from -30°C to +80°C in long-term use.
Here, the spherical ball is made from iglidur® J4 material, which is known for its low moisture absorption, low coefficient of friction during dry operation and an extremely low tendency to stick-slip. This is especially important for low loads and very slow movements.
Typical application areas

|When to use it?|
- If chemical resistance is required
- If a cost-effective option is required
- If you need dirt-resistant bearings
- To adjust misalignments
|When not to use it?|
- If temperatures are higher than +80°C
- When an integrated fixing collar is required
- If diameters above 30mm are required
- When rotation speeds higher than 0.5m/s are required
Due to the fact that igubal® pillow block bearings are suitable for maintenance-free dry operation, they are worth considering in particular for applications where the installation site is difficult to access, in a humid or wet environment or when there are special hygiene demands. As a result, igubal® pillow block bearings are used in wash-brush controls, in facade sunshade systems, in materials handling technology and in bakery equipment. Installation
igubal® pillow block bearings are designed for mounting with two bolts. Exact alignment of the bearing housing is not necessary since the spherical bearing automatically compensates for alignment errors. Special adjusting rings can be used to fix the shaft.
