Slewing rings stay tough

Written by: Chris Shaw | Published:

Polymer slewing rings from igus are ready-to-fit solutions that require no lubrication or maintenance, have been designed to replace ball-bearing type rotary tables or systems and can be used in a wide variety of applications, usually pivoting.

The tough, yet light weight iglidur PRT slewing ring bearings are corrosion-free, and the sliding parts are made of the tribo-optimised special material iglidur J.

The design of the slewing rings from igus exploits the advantages of the tried and trusted iglidur polymer plain bearing range. All the housing parts are made of aluminium (316 stainless steel versions are also available), the iglidur sliding parts run on hard anodised aluminium, and all connecting screws are made of stainless steel.

Manual clamp, drive plate and spacer rings are available as accessories. In addition, special solutions are available ex-stock, such as FDA-compliant slewing ring bearings (sliding parts made of iglidur A180) and slewing rings that are extremely chemical-resistant and can be used at up to 180°C (using the iglidur H1 bearing material).
