TREOTHAM UNVEILS NEW LONG-LIFE END CAP BALL BEARINGS

06-03-2015

Xirodur B180 polymer ball bearings form igus are designed to be maintenance-free, dry running and made from tribologically optimised polymers.

This guarantees low friction values that allow high rotational speeds with a limit speed of 1,800 rpm.

The tribo-polymer xirodur-B180, available from Treotham Automation, also makes the end cap ball bearing resistant to chemicals and corrosion.

This means temperatures of between -40°C and +80°C can be managed without any malfunctions, even over long periods.

The low weight of between 32.5-25.9g permits installation even under very low weight requirements.

The axial load-bearing capacity is 245N in static use and 294 N in dynamic applications and the xiros end cap ball bearing can be equipped optionally with glass, plastic or stainless steel balls.

The balls are housed in a polyamide cage, which guarantees high strength and ductility.

The new xiros end cap ball bearing can be used for a whole range of applications such as roller conveyors and since no lubrication is required, unnecessary soiling and the risky use of solvents can now be avoided.

The ball bearings can be cleaned with water, thus meeting many hygienic and ecological standards.

This is important where soiling is not tolerated at all, such as the food or packaging industries.
