Plastic Bearings and Bushings from igus® Made in Germany
For more than 30 years, RoHS compliant plastic bearings from igus® have offered a technical and economic advantage over all types of metal bearings. Igus® bearings require no external lubrication, are corrosion resistant and operate quietly, making them a cost-effective alternative to metal bearings. Comprised of a tribopolymer blend, the all-plastic components are lightweight, chemical resistant and non-magnetic, they can be used to reduce costs by up to 40% in clean room environments such as medical or food processing environments and in rugged industries such as oil and gas since they are able to withstand extreme temperatures and conditions. Igus® bearings are universally applicable and are suitable for special machine construction, underwater applications, packaging industries, fabrication tools, glass industries, steel industries, tobacco industries, automotive, aviation and defense industries to name a few.
Bearings are available in a wide range of standard catalog options, and customization is possible from quantities of 1. Upgrade your current bearings and bushings by switching to igus®.
