iglidur plain bearings
Plain bearings often have to withstand considerable adverse influences such as abrasive dust, high speeds or chemicals. To enable indication of the degree of wear of such plain bearings in good time, last year igus developed the world’s first intelligent bearing with iglidur high-performance polymers. This warns of imminent failure in good time. Machine and equipment operators can plan maintenance, repairs and part replacement in advance.
“Self-lubricating”, ” lubrication-free” or even “lubricant-free”. You often read these descriptions in bearing technology. The common denominator here are bearing systems that no longer need additional lubrication. In other words, no one has to stop the machine and relubricate it with a grease gun, there is no need for an oil change or, in the […]
Everyone has seen them at some point. Individual solar modules on a house roof or many of them arranged to create a solar power plant. These solar modules are generally fixed in place, oriented optimally to catch the sun. In large solar power plants, energy is generated more efficiently with special tracking systems, the “solar […]
It is not only nerves that are threatened by squeaking plain bearings. Squeaky bearings and bearings that make other noises can be a real noise pollution issue. For this reason, I will take a closer look at the topic of squeaking today. How it is generated and what can be done about it. This podcast […]
The safety of food and drink is crucial to the well-being and health of people around the world. The cleaning and disinfection of food and beverage machines is therefore extremely important. One of the best-known manufacturers of cleaning and disinfection products for this industry is Ecolab. Such cleaners are typically used in beverage filling machines. […]
