- Standard parts from stock
- Short delivery time
- Large number of different bearing types and high-performance polymers to choose from
Change now from metal to iglidur® plastic bearings and improve the performance of your application due to lower weight, quieter running, high wear resistance and freedom from corrosion. We offer you standard dimensions immediately from stock, and individual, customised solutions. Cost-effective prototypes can be produced with our speedigus® service, for instance with 3D-printed injection moulds, as 3D-printed parts or machined parts made of iglidur® bar stock. Benefit from our 30-year experience in the automotive industry and the high customisability of iglidur®.

Glimpse into the dry-tech® test laboratoryIn the industry's largest plastic test laboratory, iglidur® bearings are put to the acid test. Under practical conditions, the bearings are tested at different speeds and loads against different shaft materials. The results are entered into our tools to calculate service life and allow for precise predictions regarding their durability.
iglidur® bearings are resistant to high static loads up to 120 MPa without problems. To compensate tolerances, iglidur® bearings use high temperatures for drying after the e-coating.
iglidur® polymer 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.
Radial and axial preload of iglidur® bearings avoid vibrations and noise. They compensate tolerances, are not sensitive to edge loads and have a high static load capacity.
Spherical shells, rolling and plain bearings in chassis applications are often substituted with iglidur® bearings. Advantages are good dampening properties, high resistance to alternating bending load and wear.
iglidur® bearings are resistant to media, pressure and wear and can therefore also be used in brake calliper bearings. Their price-performance ratio makes them unbeatable.
Thrust washers made of iglidur® material replace metallic bearings and simple plastics. They have low static friction, run silently and can be produced in special shapes.
In the belt tensioner, bearings are exposed to high-frequency oscillating movements. This does not pose a problem for the wear-resistant iglidur® material. They fulfil their purpose reliably and have a dampening effect.
The plastic bearings run reliably at up to 10 million movement cycles and ambient temperatures of up to 200°C. Due to their media resistance, they can be used in the engine compartment without problems, e.g. in throttle valves.
iglidur® bearings are resistant to transmission oil, noise-dampening and do not let contact corrosion develop. Therefore, they are suitable for use in gear connection and at shift forks.
