POLYMER PARTS AND PROFILES ARE QUALIFIED FOR RAILWAY DESIGNS

Available now from Treotham Automation, iglidur RW370 is a novel polymer material that is qualified to the EN 45545 fire protection standard for use in railway applications. The high-performance igus plastic is available as lubricant- and maintenance-free plain bearings and also as a bar stock for the production of special components.

The iglidur RW370 bar stock and sheet is available in a range of different sizes and thicknesses, enabling a wide range of designs. For example, it can be used on the bogie or in couplings of trains and trams, where it will allow the carriage to slide onto the bogie and pivot the coupling in the event of lateral misalignment of the rails or cornering.

In addition to special parts made of bar stock, Treotham can also provide special profiles of different shapes made from iglidur RW370 that can save costs by reducing rework and material scrap.

These, for example, might be used for guiding train or tram doors. In this application, iglidur RW370 is lighter than metal alternatives, and it is also quieter in operation.
