Machines and components such as ball bearings used in food processing face enormous challenges. In addition to the use of the most aggressive cleaners, just as much water is used. Germs are counteracted and contamination of the food is prevented. Below you can read more about how a customer in the fish processing industry improved […]
In this section of our series of articles on the subject of plain bearing materials, we look at the so-called metal-polymer plain bearings. What are metal-polymer plain bearings? How do they differentiate themselves from other types of bearings? What are they particularly good for and when is it better to leave them alone? In this […]
ATMs are among the igus® xiros® ball bearings applications. Our polymer ball bearings fully demonstrate their superiority to metallic ball bearings in these applications. xiros® radial deep groove ball bearings are advantageous because they not only require no maintenance or lubrication, but also eliminate lubrication contamination on banknotes.
What does a famous painter, children’s toys and a bicycle road race have in common? For some, this is surprising, but they are in some way associated with ball bearings. When you think about ball bearings, many people know that they are mainly used in industry, such as in factories and motor vehicles. Rolling bearings […]
Grease or lubricating oil is essential for installing metal ball bearings. With xiros polymer ball bearings you can enjoy 100% lubrication-free ball bearings made of plastic. No grease No oil No residues on hands or machines! In most applications where ball bearings are used, mainly low loads and low speeds are required. Plastic ball bearings can be used in multi-functional applications, for example, in cases where they come into contact with liquid media, water or chemicals.
