Whether for very small installation spaces or in very large ones. From a quantity of one to millions every month. Nothing is too much for igus. All our customers with their individual requirements and needs are of equal importance.
Due to many, many applications, ideas and designs, we are faced with the very same challenge over and over again: what can the solution look like? How can we deal with the problem?
As a result, we work together to create new products every year – solutions to problems. Many of them make it beyond the status of an individual customer project into production. This is the igus Spring news. In 2020 as well – perhaps particularly in 2020, when a lot of things are changing in the world and many customers are looking for alternatives.
Are you also looking for an alternative? – We will be happy to provide you with expert advice for free and without obligation!
H3 is a new material in the iglidur H family. H3 sets new standards with its outstanding robustness. This material is tougher than comparable materials and has a longer service life than iglidur H1.
AX500 is conductive and has an even lower coefficient of wear than its predecessor. The material was specially developed for the food industry and can therefore be used in contact with food products.
iglidur AC500 is a further development of the A500 material, which is detectable and has an optimised service life. Plain bearings made of AC500 have been certified for use in direct contact with food.
The service life of iglidur F gears is twice as long as that of comparable POM gears. iglidur F is characterised by a particularly low coefficient of friction and high wear resistance - even in applications requiring continuous operation - and also by its vibration-dampening properties.
The advantages can now also be used for gears: cost-effectively injection moulded from iglidur materials, they make the use of additional lubricants superfluous and your application is therefore maintenance-free.
When electrical conductivity is important and electrostatic charging of the components is to be avoided, iglidur F3 is exactly the right choice. As the material contains incorporated solid lubricants, the rollers can be used without any additional lubricants and the maintenance associated with them.
The SG03 felt seal prevents the ingress of dirt and dust into the bearing and thus protects the bearing itself and the shaft against wear and early failure.
iglidur® isense plain bearings indicate their wear status in good time. If a bearing needs to be changed, the system is informed about it.
The new material iglidur E is especially characterised by its long service life in combination with shafts made of aluminium. Especially in linear and pivoting motion profiles, iglidur E offers particularly good wear properties.
So-called knife edge rollers are used as guide rollers in conveyor belts. The new material iglidur A250 was specifically developed for use in knife edge rollers for the food industry and conforms to FDA and EU10/2011.
With DIN EN 45545, the new material iglidur RW250 meets the strict fire protection requirements of railway technology. In addition, the material formulation has been optimised for complete wear resistance and offers very good running properties in many applications.
Specially developed for the food sector, the material formulation is particularly suitable for machines and systems with food contact due to its optically well detectable colouring, low moisture absorption and conformity to FDA and EU10/2011 guidelines.
Due to their shape, the new iglidur K250 clip bearings can be easily clipped into sheet metals without getting lost. Thanks to its temperature resistance, the new material recipe also allows for absolute dimensional stability beyond the e-coating process.
The coating with iglidur coating materials enables you to solve wear problems even where there is little space for plain bearings due to particularly narrow installation spaces.
Solid rollers made of tribologically optimised iglidur materials enable lubrication-free and maintenance-free guiding and deflection without ball bearings in the smallest installation space with simultaneous weight savings.
