Just relax on the lake or glide completely carefree through the lagoon, all this is made possible by the electrically assisted “Ceclo”. To ensure that the ride remains very smooth for a long time, the French manufacturer of the same name now installs polymer plain bearings from igus instead of metallic ball bearings in their e-pedal boats. As a result, the lubrication-free and maintenance-free rotation of the propeller reduces maintenance costs and also meets strict environmental regulations.
High speeds and high waves not only make for a lot of fun on board high-speed boats, they can also be dangerous as passengers experience a physical shock every time the boat’s hull strikes the water. Vibration-dampening seats with bearings that absorb these shocks are therefore called for. Designers are able to rely on wear-resistant igus linear bearing technology, thanks to the use of tribo-polymers that are lubrication-free, maintenance-free and corrosion-free.
