Light and durable: xiros® thrust bearings

Maintenance-free ball bearings for axial loads

In contrast to metal thrust bearings, xiros axial deep groove ball bearings made of plastic are particularly light. They are characterised by smooth running, low friction and extraordinarily low coefficient of wear. As they do not require additional lubrication, they are clean and perfectly suited for the medical and packaging industries as well as applications with food contact.

How is a xiros® thrust bearing designed?

The bearing rings and the ball-cage assembly of the xiros thrust bearings consist of xirodur® plastic, which was specially designed by igus. This makes lubrication superfluous, leading to a tremendous reduction in maintenance costs. The balls can consist of either stainless steel or glass, which means that axial deep groove ball bearings made of plastic are:

  • corrosion-free
  • non-magnetic (with glass balls) and
  • chemical-resistant.

The stated measurements of xiros axial deep groove ball bearings are based on the DIN 711 standard. The product range consists of single-direction and single and double-row deep groove ball bearings for axial loads. The double-row thrust bearings are particularly well suited if a higher load capacity is required.
