Plastic Bearings

Iglide plastic bearings come in 20 material blends and in more than 6,000 stock metric and inch sizes and styles.

All iglide bearings are self-lubricating and maintenance-free. Iglide bearings will not corrode, give excellent vibration dampening, and resist UV.

Such factors as speed, load and temperature mostly determine bearing suitability for an application. A predictability calculator, based on considerable data gathered in the lab and field, helps determine wear rates and bearing performance.

Applications for iglide bearings include agricultural and lawn equipment, construction, fitness and sports equipment, semiconductor production equipment, medical devices, textile machinery, machine tools, packaging and material-handling machinery, and automotive equipment.
