Can I machine iglidur plain bearings?
Plastic is easy to process and machine. Simple, conventional devices and machines as used for woodworking and metalworking are usually sufficient for machining purposes. In addition, iglidur plain bearings have a homogeneous structure. This means that you do not have to worry about roughened-up gliding layers or damaged carrier surfaces. In many cases, a changed surface even has a positive effect on the operating characteristics, especially in the running-in phase.
