Plastic bearings

Dec. 8, 2005
Iglide plastic bearings come in 20 material blends and 6,000 metric and inch sizes.

The bearings are selflubricating and maintenance-free, will not corrode, have excellent vibration dampening, and are UV resistant. The bearings press fit directly into a housing, eliminating the need for special tools and lubricants. The bearings find use in agricultural, lawn, construction, fitness, sports, automotive, and semiconductorproduction equipment, as well as medical devices, textile machinery, machine tools, and packaging and material-handling machinery. igus Inc., Box 14394, East Providence, RI 02914, (888) 803-1895,
