Igus has developed its lubrication-free two-component bearing iglidur Q2E. In construction machines, agricultural machines, utility vehicles and offshore installations, plain bearings often have to cope with extreme conditions such as heavy loads. The material iglidur Q2 ensures a tested high degree of wear-resistance, and a hard polymershell protects the heavy-duty bearing.
Dirt, impacts and high edge loads Bearings in construction equipment, agricultural machines and offshore installations often have a hard time and have to cope with extreme conditions. Durable materials and dirt-resistant components are therefore called for. igus has now upgraded its iglidur Q2E heavy-duty bearing for exactly such scenarios of use.
igus is expanding its range of bearings for heavy-duty applications and closes the gap between existing bearings and solutions made of metal and composites. The bearing consists of high-performance plastics and is therefore completely lubrication and corrosion-free. The absence of lubrication allows maintenance-free operation of the bearing points and prevents machine failures due to lack of lubrication. Expensive central lubrication systems are no longer necessary.
Dirt and impurities can no longer adhere to the bearing points, and this minimises wear. In addition, less grease and oil escapes into the environment, a result of which the annual consumption of over 35 million metric tons of lubricant, as measured by RWTH Aachen University, is reduced. Another advantage: the injection-moulding method used to manufacture the plain bearings is especially cost-efficient.
iglidur Q2E is initially available for shaft diameters of 20, 25, 30 and 40mm.
