Iglide l.jpg
Iglide

  • All Polymer Bearings

  • USP’s

  • Competition

  • New products


We are a plain bearing l.jpg
We are a “Plain Bearing”

  • Basically this means that we do not use rolling technology like

  • ball bearings.

  • Instead of rolling we are sliding (friction bearings)

  • Often times referred to as “Bushings”

What benefit can innovation in polymers have for plain bearings?

Thermoplasic polymer

+ Reinforcing compounds

+ Solid lubricants

= iglide®

  • Universal and custom solutions

  • Advantages of Polymers are enhanced

  • Disadvantages of Polymers minimized or eliminated

Unique selling points l.jpg
Unique Selling Points bearings?

* Maintenance-Free

  • No lube (messy, bad around food, attracts dirt, dust, etc.)

  • Lifetime Calculation/Online Calculator

  • Light - Quiet

  • Vibration Dampening

  • Good in Abrasive Environments

  • Good Chemical Resistance

  • Quiet Operation

  • Higher Static Load than Bronze/Steel plain bearings



Sintered bronze oilite l.jpg
Sintered Bronze (Oilite) bearings?

  • Oil-impregnated bearings

  • Most common in US

  • Best for high RPM applications

  • In most apps they are not used correctly

  • Need maintenance/oil

What about Bronze?


Sintered bronze oilite7 l.jpg
Sintered-Bronze (Oilite) bearings?

  • Iglide Advantages:

    • Better for linear (no oil)

    • Better for pivoting/oscillating

    • Better for lower speeds

    • No lube in dirty environments, food applications, etc.

Mention Iglide “R” and “M250” as they are dimensionally interchangeable


Du bushing garlock l.jpg
DU Bushing (Garlock) bearings?

  • Metal-backed Teflon liner

  • Very common in Europe

  • Dimensionally similar to Iglide thin-walled parts


Du bushing garlock9 l.jpg
DU Bushing (Garlock) bearings?

  • IGUS Benefits:

    • Lower Cost

    • Better in bad environments (think about scratching a Teflon pan)

    • DU has thin liner-if gone you get metal-to-metal contact = bad.

When you see these applications we often recommend our G300 material


The 6 rules of iglide l.jpg
The 6 Rules of Iglide: bearings?

  • Check application surface pressure, speed, and temperature

  • Max Pressure x Velocity (P*V value) = 28,571 continuously lube-free

  • Ideal App is low speed <60FPM, with loads up to 14,500PSI (rotating/pivoting)

  • Use hardened shafts if PSI >725

  • Total travel <6000 miles

  • Clearance of .02”-.04” is acceptable


Extreme iglide products l.jpg
Extreme Iglide Products bearings?

  • iglide® Z/T500

  • For extreme loads 21,000PSI +

  • For high temperatures

  • Permanent application temperature 550F

  • Excellent chemical resistance

Slide13 l.jpg

USP’s- DryLin bearings?

  • Maintenance-free

  • Self-Lubricating

  • Good in dirty, nasty environments

  • Lower cost

  • Innovative Designs

  • Flexible

  • Low-Profile

  • Quiet

We have the very unique capability to calculate lifetime and wear!


Competition ball bearings l.jpg
Competition: Ball Bearings bearings?

  • Names: THK-Thompson-Hiwinn-IKO-INA-Star-Rextroth

  • aka. Ball bushings, ball slides, recirculating

  • ball bearings

  • Disadvantages:

  • 1. Not suitable for abrasive/harsh environments

  • (dirt, chemicals, water, washdown, metal shavings)

  • 2. Not good with high static loads

  • 3. Often over engineered for many

  • applications= Very $$$

  • Loud

  • Must use special, hardened, expensive shafts

Tribocological Benefits


Competition plain bearings l.jpg
Competition- plain bearings bearings?

Main US competitor is Pacific Bearing

Disadvantages:

  • No lifetime calculations

  • Mostly sold through Distributor

  • More expensive

  • Bad in harsh environments

  • CANNOT REPLACE LINERS


Drylin 2 1 rule the principle l.jpg
DryLin bearings?® - 2 : 1 RuleThe Principle:

< 2

Fdrive

floating bearing

fixed bearing

The driving force must not be further away from the fixed bearings than twice the distance between the bearings
