igubal® spherical bearing
The use of spherical bearings is usually associated with the high weight of the bearings, difficult installation and high costs. In most cases, however, maintenance is required in the longer term and the bearings are only corrosion-free in special designs. Often roller bearings or plain bearings malfunction prematurely due to high edge loads, or because they need to be readjusted, reamed or refitted in order to compensate for alignment errors. igubal® spherical bearings end these disadvantages and open up new possibilities through their design: they are easy to handle, cost-effective, very lightweight and very robust.
The housing is made of igumid® G, a particularly impact-resistant, long fibre reinforced polymer. Suitable for temperatures from -30°C to +80°C in long-term use.
Here, the spherical ball is made of iglidur® J4, a material that is characterised by its low cost and low coefficient of friction when operating dry.
