Bearings and condition monitoring

iglidur® in action on a front loader test rig

Agricultural equipment is subject to harsh environments having to operate in dusty, dirty and all weather conditions. Metallic plain bearings and recirculating ball bearings can often be replaced with polymer alternatives. Without needing lubricant, they are maintenance free and can increase service life by up to 8 times, yielding significant cost savings.

In addition to dry running, polymer plain bearings are corrosion resistant and can dampen mechanical vibration. The iglidur® Q2 bearings for example, are made for heavy-duty pivoting applications under harsh conditions. Being extremely wear-resistant, insensitive to edge loads and stable at high loads, they provide a good price / performance ratio.

iglidur® bearings have been tested outdoors in realistic applications under differing motion patterns, while being exposed to a variety of weather conditions. We would like to show you how to improve your agricultural equipment technology and save cost at the same time. Put igus® to the test by requesting samples now!
