Igus develop bearing material that are well suited for the requirements of maintenance-free sliding bearings. Igus sliding bearings are made of polymeric materials. This mean a bearing that is lubrication-free, maintenance-free, corrosion-free and with low weight. The products have high wear resistance and handle high loads during a long period of time. As a customer, you get access to bearing technology with documented function and calculable life span. By doing a quick analysis of your application and using the width of the product range, we can always offer an optimal and cost efficient bearing solution. All Igus products are DIN standard compliant and can be ordered in FDA approved version for use in the pharmaceutical and food industry.

…are some variants


We will gladly help with calculations regarding which type suits your application best.

Igus bearings are made like squeeze bushings. They get their correct inner diameter when squeezed into place. The overmeasure before insertion may be as much as 2% of the inner diameter. The installation hole should be processed to tolerance H7, with the highest possible surface finish and appropiate phase. The installation is done using a flat stamp. Avoid using mandrels. All bearings have been provided with a phase that eases the installation. We recommend not using lubricants during installation.

iglidur® J200 – Best friction coefficients with CF53, X90, ST37 and many coated surfaces.
iglidur® Q – Recommended when it comes to friction against hard chromium plated surfaces.

igS0007_ iglidur® X – Almost universal chemical resistance, even at high temperatures.
iglidur® A500 – As iglidur® X, also approved for direct contact with food.
iglidur® V400 – High chemical resistance, very wear resistant even when in contact with soft shafts.
iglidur® Z – Good chemical restistance, low friction coefficients and high wear resistance at high loads.

Approved for food

For food industry.

Usage under water
