- Particularly lightweight
In contrast to metal thrust bearings, xiros axial deep groove ball bearings made of plastic are particularly light. They are characterised by smooth running, low friction and extraordinarily low coefficient of wear. As they do not require additional lubrication, they are clean and perfectly suited for the medical and packaging industries as well as applications with food contact.
The bearing rings and the ball-cage assembly of the xiros thrust bearings consist of xirodur® plastic, which was specially designed by igus. This makes lubrication superfluous, leading to a tremendous reduction in maintenance costs. The balls can consist of either stainless steel or glass, which means that axial deep groove ball bearings made of plastic are:
