LUBRICATION-FREE AND WEAR-RESISTANT SLIDING IN SMALL SPACES

In industry, the demand for smaller, lighter machines continues to grow, and industrial engineers are creating smaller and smaller designs for use in places where installation space is at a premium. With regard to components, more solutions are needed in the area of plain bearing technology, as every millimetre counts.

For lubrication-free sliding in very small spaces, igus has developed three new materials made of maintenance-free tribo-polymers as coating materials for metal components such as sheets, valves or even shafts. This means that compact, wear-resistant and cost-effective solutions are now available for users who do not have enough space to install a plain bearing.

In order to meet these requirements, igus applied its decades of experience to the development of tribologically optimised plastics and has developed three new maintenance-free and lubrication-free tribo-polymers as coating materials specially for very small installation spaces. As a result, not only the lubrication-free iglidur plain bearings but also the iglidur coating service for metal surfaces with the material iglidur IC-01 and the new IC-02, IC-03 and IC-06 materials are now available from Treotham.

The installation space needed for a plain bearing can be reduced through the use of a coating, which is ideal for small and compact machines and equipment. Thanks to the polymer coating, the surface of moving components is extremely durable and wear-resistant. The surface is also corrosion-free and resistant to chemicals thanks to the tribo-polymers. These coatings are used in valves and pumps, and for guide plates and systems.
