New Brochure Highlights Interesting Applications

POSTED 06/10/2009

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. – June 1, 2009 – igus® has published a new brochure about how its plastic plain bearings, spherical bearings and linear bearings and slides are used in real-world applications.  “igus Bearing Applications” highlights application examples from a wide range of industries to inform design engineers about the advantages of using plastic bearings.

“igus Bearing Applications” includes more than 20 application examples from industries including medical, agricultural, food and entertainment.  The stories show how plastic bearings can save money, reduce downtime and replace other bearing types such as metal and bronze.  The brochure also talks about the value-added services offered by igus, such as free onsite value-analysis visits and the Expert System, which predicts the service life of its iglide® plastic plain bearings, igubal® spherical bearings and DryLin® linear bearings and slides in a given application.

All igus’ bearings and sliding elements are made from high-performance polymers.  They are self-lubricating and maintenance-free, which reduces costs and maintenance requirements.
