The innovative assembly concepts of igus plain bearings are particularly popular for hinge connections in, amongst other things the seat height adjustment. The igus clip bearings are easy to handle and increase efficiency. The flange processes and recalibration steps common to metallic plain bearings are eliminated. Further advantages are the weight (up to 5x lighter) and parts price reduction (up to 40%) compared to the metal version.
Developing the interiors of cars is a big challenge for designers and engineers. Within just a few seconds, it creates a first gut feeling. Even before we sit down on the car seat, we reach for the steering wheel. Immediately afterwards, we examine the arm rest and feel the buttons for adjusting the windows…
Grease or lubricating oil is essential for installing metal ball bearings. With xiros polymer ball bearings you can enjoy 100% lubrication-free ball bearings made of plastic. No grease No oil No residues on hands or machines!
The Xiros self-lubricating plastic ball bearing is adopted for the shutter mechanism of the active air intake grille, which could perfectly meet the requirements of the customers: it features minimum friction coefficient, dirt resistance, resistance to high temperature and low temperature and light weight. For vertical shutter, we also provide iglidur J sliding bearing for […]
Plastic and high temperatures? Yes, even as a connection to actuators of turbochargers or in EGR valves, iglidur® high-temperature materials are represented millions of times as plain bearings or coupling rods. With permanent application temperatures of up to 250 ° C and briefly 300 ° C, plastic plain bearings are used in almost all engine […]
Coordinated thermal management is essential for the vehicle to be as efficient as possible. Under the optimal operating temperature, the highest efficiency and therefore the lowest consumption and the minimum emissions are achieved. The coolant plays an important role in this, as well as cooling to protect against corrosion and prevent frost. Coolant pumps, controllers […]
Lubrication-free iglidur J plain bearings replace metallic solutions in grape destemming machines This year, the grape harvest in Baden, Germany, makes an early start at the beginning of August. Experts expect it to be one of the best years ever in the southern region the country. After harvesting, gentle processing of the grape plays a […]
What is Buzz, Squeak and Rattle (BSR)? BSR are all noises that are produced by components and assemblies in the motor vehicle. BSR testing, also called a noise and rattle test, is an acoustic method from the automotive industry and is used to measure the volume of these noises. A realistic situation with corresponding vibrations […]
What is fogging? Generally speaking, fogging refers to the outgassing of individual material parts that condense in the surroundings of the component. Usually, the fogging effect is associated with heated living spaces. Here, black-dust settlements occur in flats during the heating period. Typical signs of fogging are planar black coating or black dust that sticks […]
AGVs become lighter and require less maintenance thanks to lubrication-free motion plastics In times of increasing digitalisation of factories and warehouses, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are continuously conquering intralogistics. The reliability requirements are high in order to ensure faster processing and unimpeded material flow. AGV manufacturers are therefore equipping their systems with motion plastics components […]
