  • LowCost-material for large quantities
Product description
iglidur® R | Low-cost material, low wear
The development of iglidur® R as a bearing material focused on high performance and very low cost. Especially in the dry operation, a low coefficient of friction and wear were to be achieved. Plain bearings made from iglidur® R are supported by a combination of solid lubricants. The PTFE and silicone-free material achieves extremely low coefficient of friction in dry operation and runs largely free of stick-slip effects.

  • When high wear resistance at low loads is required
  • If you are looking for a very cost-effective bearing
  • When a very low coefficient of friction in dry operation is required
  • If edge loads occur
  • When you are looking for low water absorption
  • When PTFE and silicone are not allowed in your application

Tolerances and measuring system
The installation height and tolerances of iglidur® plain bearings are dependent on the material and wall thicknesses. For each material, the moisture absorption and the thermal expansion are decisive factors. Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be designed with a minimal bearing clearance. The rule of thumb for wall thickness: the thicker the wall of the bearings, the larger the clearances must be.
Testing methods
 
Assembly
iglidur® plain bearings are press-fit bearings. The inner diameter adjusts only after press-fitting into the correctly toleranced housing hole. The press-fit interference can be up to 2% of the inner diameter. This ensures that the bearing is securely press-fitted. Axial or radial movement in the housing are also prevented in this way.
