More energy for longer with igus plastic bearings

Plain bearings and spherical bearings are traditionally used to support the movements of solar panels while tracking the sun's rays for maximum efficiency. However, extreme temperatures and weather conditions caused by wind, water, dirt and dust take metallic bearings quickly to their performance limits.

Plastic bearings from igus UK are made from tribopolymers; totally self-lubricating and requiring no maintenance, they are tested and proven to perform and last in these extreme environmental conditions, have a predictable lifetime and never fail catastrophically.
