igus has released a 2013 bearings catalog for its iglide plastic bushings, igubal self-aligning bearings, and DryLin linear bearings and guides. The new edition features a number of innovative new product lines, such as knife-edge rollers offering oil-free deflection for conveyor belts, and zero-backlash leadscrew nuts. The catalog additionally offers 17 new plastic bearing materials suitable for almost any application — from agricultural machinery and construction equipment to bicycles, luxury yachts, and medical devices.
New linear slide table, DryLin ZAW, is perfect for those applications when you need the rail to move but the carriage to remain stationary, and the DryLin Mono-Slide guide has a one-piece carriage which prevents misalignment issues. End caps for the low-profile DryLin N linear slide range are also now available, as well as a plethora of new additions to the company’s growing plastic ball-bearing range, all of which run without the need for lubrication — a characteristic of all igus’ bearings products.
