iglidur PRT slewing ring bearings are ready-to-install slewing rings for lubrication-free, dry operation. The design is not based on metal rollers or balls but on maintenance-free sliding elements made of the proven tribologically optimised iglidur materials in combination with rings made of lightweight anodised aluminium or stainless steel. iglidur materials can be employed universally and enable use in applications involving high temperatures, moisture or contact with chemicals as well as in the food industry. iglidur PRT slewing ring bearings are ready-to-install slewing rings for lubrication-free, dry operation. A slewing ring is used when an application has to perform a rotary movement horizontally.
Frequent areas of use are:
- Vertical turning machines
- Base of robot arms
- Lighting equipment
- Shop construction and furniture manufacture
- Turning stations
The special properties of iglidur PRT slewing ring bearings enable a wide variety of applications. iglidur slewing rings, however, are not designed for high speeds and heavy loads. For such cases, conventional multi-component bearings with grease lubrication and large interspaces have their advantages.
What differentiates igus slewing rings from those of other manufacturers is the modular kit principle: with diverse accessories such as spacer rings, universal sliding elements and drive pins, it is possible to customise any pre-harnessed assembly.
