Plan maintenance in advance: this goal is not only pursued by igus with its intelligent smart plastics products for monitoring energy chains, cables and plain bearings, but manufacturers of machines and systems are also offering increasingly more solutions with their own condition monitoring tools.
With specifications such as low coefficient of friction and excellent vibration dampening, the tribo-polymer iglidur E7 has already proven its strengths in the sliding elements of the drylin linear technology from igus. Now the plastics specialist has also included the material in its plain bearings catalogue range. This also allows users to benefit from iglidur E7 mechanisms with rotating or pivoting movements. The low coefficient of friction of the material ensures smooth movements, reduces the required drive energy and saves additional costs.
