Video of the Week – Slewing Ring Bearings
News Release from:
igus UK Limited
With igus there is a new way to tackle the problems previously solved by conventional ball bearings. The igus slewing ring uses two self-lubricating, low friction polymer sliding elements in place of the ball bearings – a cost-effective, low noise and highly wear resistant solution that's maintenance-free.
Highly wear resistant, easy to install and completely maintenance-free
All housing parts are made of aluminium and use stainless steel screws, the polymer elements contain solid lubricant so it does not require additional lubrication. The polymer also makes it resistant to chemical aggressors and features moisture absorption and good vibration dampening properties.
Maintenance and lubrication-free, the iglidur PRT modules are ideal for OEMs looking for a ready-to-install solution, such as in semiconductor and cleanroom applications, assembly lines, wind turbines, production facilities and robots. The iglidur PRT slewing ring bearing system is available in a wide range of sizes, with outside diameters of 20, 30, 60, 100 200 and 300 mm.
