Bearing material endures harsh environments
27 July 2016
igus has introduced a new, robust bearing material that meets the demanding requirements of agricultural, construction and mining vehicles. In particular, when running on galvanised shafts and in dirty environments, iglidur Q290 proves a cost-saving, heavy-duty alternative to its metallic counterparts.
Low friction and resistance to dirt are among the strengths of the Q290 material, which is self-lubricating. igus director, Robert Dumayne, comments: “As there is no need for lubrication, igus bearings are always ready for action – even on machinery that has been at a standstill for long periods of time. In addition, the absence of lubricant means that there is no chance of soil contamination.”
iglidur Q290 material is available from stock in six different inner diameters to 50mm, with no minimum order quantities, and is available for shipping within 24 hours.
