The multitude of application possibilities with iglidur in seating systems

Julio Pauli | 12. May 2020

A modern car seat today is very complex and has undergone enormous technological progress in recent years. More and more electronic adjustment options (e.g. seat height adjustment) have found their way into the mass production applications of car manufacturers by means of actuators. Thereby the minimisation of noise and weight is a crucial requirement for all modern seating designs. Seating systems should be light, offer maximum comfort and, at the same time, be safe.

BSR and NVH: what influence do polymer plain bearings have on noise generation?

Sebastian Bloechl | 12. May 2020

The application areas for plain bearings are enormous and can be found in almost all industries. As a rule, the main focus is on minimising wear and friction of the counter partners. But nowadays these requirements for the bearing point are supplemented by an essential detail. With the trend towards ever quieter vehicles and car […]

iglidur plain bearings in windscreen wiper kinematics

Steffen Schack | 8. May 2020

A functioning windscreen wiper is an important part of the car and crucial for comfort and road safety. The wiper arm, together with the lever mechanism responsible for its movement, should last for the whole service life of the vehicle and function perfectly.    For the moving components and bearing points, this means extreme load over several million cycles in many respects: the airstream […]

Polymer plain bearings in a gearbox – is this possible?

Sebastian Bloechl | 20. April 2020

“Shift and operate as we please”, a saying that can also be applied to vehicle operation. Be it a modern car or a freshly polished classic car: on some days we prefer to change gear earlier and save money, on others we tickle the last torque out of the engine. The gearbox and the shift forks […]
