igubal rod end bearings handle high loads at normal room temperatures, have excellent dampening properties and weigh only a fifth of traditional metallic bearing rod end bearings, making them an excellent replacement for standard metal options. The resistance of igubal bearings to dirt and dust makes them ideal for applications where a standard greased bearing would not be suitable, such as in outdoor and agricultural applications.

Also on display will be igus’ line of self-lubricating plain bearings, iglide, which are currently celebrating 30 years of innovation. Swapping bronze bearings for iglide specialist plastics can increase service life in tough applications by 600% or more, while reducing costs by up to 80%. All iglide bearings are completely self-lubricating, so they will not attract dirt and debris which can cause bearings to seize. Additionally, liquids like water and chemicals will not affect bearing performance. For these reasons, among others, iglide plastic materials are a perfect solution for outdoor applications.
