Self-aligning ball bearing made of polymer

Patrick Czaja | 4. May 2021

Self-aligning ball bearings (DIN 630) are double-row rolling bearings, consisting of an inner ring with a common ball raceway and an outer ring characterised by a hollow spherical design. Due to the hollow shape of the outer ring and the resulting angular mobility, self-aligning ball bearings are used in applications with larger misalignments, shaft deflections […]

The time for heating begins: polymer ball bearings from igus® defy extreme heat

Patrick Czaja | 27. October 2020

Plastics and hot temperatures in ovens do not have to oppose each other, as shown in the following application example of the Koppe company. Because lubrication-free polymer ball bearings from igus are successfully used in their pellet stoves for private households. The functionality of the stoves is ingenious, as the pellets burn without electricity via a mechanical drive unit. The polymer ball bearings ensure long running times and smooth operation in the drive unit.
