igubal® pillow block bearings are up to 40% more cost-effective and up to 80% lighter than comparable metal solutions. They are also more economic to operate as they permit lubrication-free dry running, which makes them maintenance-free. igubal® pillow block bearings have a high level of durability and stiffness – even when they are exposed to demanding ambient conditions over years. They are resistant to media, corrosion-free and function properly even in liquids and media. Even UV radiation from the sun, nuclear radiation and temperatures between -30 and +80 °C do not have any negative impact on their running properties and their wear resistance. The pillow block bearings are additionally resistant to dust and dirt. The product range is expanding continually. The pillow block bearings are currently available in the K (also inch dimensions) and E dimensional series, for shaft diameters of 5 to 50 mm (the shaft should have a tolerance between h6 and h9). Thanks to a large number of different housing shapes, the pillow block bearings can also be mounted in complicated installation locations. Another benefit of the pillow block bearings: they are equipped with spherical balls for automatic angle compensation. This enables the bearings to automatically equal out alignment errors and edge loads, misalignments and deflections of the shaft. In contrast to bearings made of metal, they are also able to absorb and dampen high-frequency vibrations. This makes them especially suitable for applications where these effects cannot be avoided on account of the respective design.
