New High Performance Iglidur L350 Plastic Plain Bearings
Iglidur L350 came ahead in the process of compacting bearings with significantly lower wear rates especially at very high speeds. Here at ASAP Supply Chain upgrades of the wear and tear are not our favorite since we like customers to order parts often. Igus, The Cologne-based Leading Manufacturer of energy chain systems and polymer plain bearings, developed an innovative lubrication and maintenance-free material for very high speeds in constant operation. The company says iglidur L350 is suitable and affordable for any use in fans, blowers or electric motors. In revolving tests, the igus material proved its full potential against metallic solutions.
Friction and wear play an absolute important role where lastingly fast rotations exist. Iglidur L350 is designed for constant high speeds. The new high-performance plastic scored high compared to other solutions in moving applications. The other solution compared to the new high-performance plastic was metallic sintered bearings due to its higher flexibility against impacts and edge pressure.
In igus' in-house test laboratory, the bearing made of iglidur L350 showed a three-fold decrease in wear at speeds of 1.5 m/s. The amounts of friction and wear for iglidur L350 plain bearings remained constantly low. The new material can be used in result of the low thermal increase of the bearings even in demanding environment conditions with temperatures of up to +210 degC. With endless research, the price of iglidur L350 could be reduced by 50 percent compared to similar igus materials.
The iglidur L350 is appropriate for a wide range of applications from fans, blowers, electric motors, and simple household appliances. It is the alternative to oil-impregnated sintered bearings. Plain bearings made of iglidur L350 can be calculated and ordered online. The material is also available for the development and production of customer-specific geometries and bearing solutions.
At ASAP Supply Chain, we like to make great relationships with manufactures because they can give us the best price possible. That’s something we are proud of here, since we have many great connections with manufactures that we order from frequently. Order manufacture parts are the best because they are in the best condition possible and we like our customers to have reliable parts.
