igus announced its self-lubricating plastic bearings utilizing their iglide L500 plastic material. These self-lubricating plastic bearings are designed for continuous high rotational speeds under low loads.
The L500 material combines extraordinary wear resistance in long-running, high speed applications. Continuous rotational speeds of more than 16 ft./s are possible, and the L500 material performs even under extreme environmental conditions, such as temperature ranging from -148° to 482° F, as well as media contact. The L500 material is characterized by its low moisture absorption and thermal expansion.
These self-lubricating plastic bearings are ideal dry-running, wear resistant alternatives to sintered bearings.
The positive material properties of the iglide L500 allow the self-lubricating operation of electric motors, fans, and ventilators, where sintered bearings were previously used. There is a standard range of RoHS-compliant L500 self-lubricating plastic bearings available, as well as production of customer-specific solutions.
