Why injection moulding tools from the 3D printer?

Dirk Zacharias | 2. August 2019

With the aid of 3D printing, injection moulds can be manufactured at up to 80% lower costs. As a result, 3D-printed moulds are particularly interesting for small batches and samples, and can be commissioned for a quantity of 1 or more. The complete iglidur range of 50 materials is available for the maintenance-free plastic plain […]

My iglidur plain bearing is worn on the outside.

Lars Butenschön | 9. July 2019

Plain bearings with unplanned wear on the outer diameter or bearings that damage the housing hole do not usually have a tight-enough press-fit and, for this reason, have turned in the housing. They are several ways of solving this problem: choosing a temperature-resistant material with low coefficient of thermal expansion, simply gluing the plain bearing […]

Can I nevertheless lubricate my plain bearing?

Lars Butenschön | 9. July 2019

Yes. iglidur plain bearings do not need any lubrication as they have solid particles of lubricant embedded in the material. In spite of this, it can make sense to lubricate a bearing point equipped with iglidur plain bearings, for   example in order to protect the shaft or housing against corrosion or dirt. However, other measures are […]

Do I need to axially secure the plain bearings?

Lars Butenschön | 9. July 2019

iglidur plain bearings are held in place in the smaller housing hole by means of the press-fit. Certain parameters such as high or especially low temperatures, however, can diminish the press-fit – at least temporarily. In this case, technical measures are recommended, such as using collar bushings, other types of component or a more suitable iglidur material […]

What does “lubrication-free” mean?

Lars Butenschön | 9. July 2019

iglidur materials do not need any additional lubrication – unlike many other plain bearings. The friction between plain bearing and shaft is reduced due to extremely fine particles of solid lubricant that are directly embedded in the material and thus are insensitive to outside influences. 0 0
