The igubal® range offers a complete line of self-aligning bearings, including: spherical bearings, pillow blocks, rod ends, clevis joints, and flange bearings.
igubal® bearings are easy to install and allow you to compensate for misalignment. They are also made from high-performance, low cost plastics, which have excellent vibration dampening properties, are lubrication-free, and operate in water or chemicals.
The resistance of igubal® bearings to dirt and dust makes them ideal for applications where a standard greased bearing would not be suitable.
Compared to their metal counterparts, igubal® weighs up to 80% less and can help to save on installation space due to being low profile. The maintenance-free aspect also helps to keep costs down.
Advantages of igubal®: - Cost effective - Maintenance-free - Lubrication-free - Resistant to dirt and dust - Corrosion resistant - Can be used in liquid media - Vibration dampening - Inner race set in housings with very low clearance - Dirt can become embedded for shaft protection - 80% lighter than steel
