iglidur plain bearings are held in place in the smaller housing hole by means of the press-fit.

You can find information on all aspects of this topic in our blog article; an overview of the temperatures above which we recommend an additional locating spigot for which iglidur material can be found in the igus plain bearings catalogue.
