IGUS


PLASTIC FOR LONGER LIFE® Günter Blase began igus® back on 15th October 1964 in a double garage in Cologne. For the first 20 years, the company worked as a supplier of complex technical polymer components. However, in 1983 Frank Blase established reinforced plastic Energy Chain Systems® and injection molded polymer bearings as two distinct product groups and set up a network of sales engineers. These seemingly unrelated products are linked together through the belief in making functionally advanced, yet affordable polymer components and assemblies. Between 1985 and 2016, igus® grew from 40 to more than 2,950 employees distributed between the head office in Germany and 35 subsidiary companies around the world. igus® also has representative partners in more than 35 other countries. igus® will continue to invest in expansion in the coming years, thanks to the opportunities for growth provided by modern materials.

iglide® PRT Slewing Rings

iglide® PRT slewing rings use self-lubricating, low-friction sliding elements in place of ball bearings. They represent a step forward in slewing ring bearing technology. The sliding elements are made from an igus®-developed, low-cost, high-performance plastic called iglide® J, which is completely lubrication- and maintenance-free. All the housing components are made from aluminum (except style 02, which has wear-resistant iglide® J4 inner rings) and all the surfaces parallel to the iglide® sliding elements are hard anodized with stainless-steel fasteners. A completely stainless-steel version is also available upon request. Benefits Off-the-shelf slewing rings ready to ship within 24 hours Custom hole patterns/machining available Downloadable CAD files Lifetime calculation Custom options (e.g. gears, stainless versions) Technical support inc. on-site assistance within 36 hours Low cost No minimum order Free samples

xiros® plastic ball bearing

xiros® plastic ball bearings are often a better alternative to ball bearings made of metal, because they are lighter and more affordable and at the same time have a long service life. Thanks to their self-lubricating and maintenance-free operation, they can be successfully used in numerous applications. In many non-standard solutions, metal ball bearings run up against their limits and are replaced by ball bearings made of plastic.
