igus Introduces iglide M250 Self-lubricating Plastic Bearings
EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. – July 2005 – Igus® Inc. delivers iglide® engineered plastic bearings in twenty material blends and more than 6,000 sizes and styles available from stock. Iglide M250 self-lubricating bearings are well suited for low to medium load applications and are an ideal replacement for sintered-bronze bearings. Iglide M250 is impact resistant, provides excellent vibration dampening and is completely resistant to dirt and chemicals.

Iglide M250 is developed using a thermoplastic alloy, modified for general load resistance and low wear. A mix of solid lubricants provides the self-lubricating effect during dry operation as well as a high crystalline level on the surface, thus increasing wear resistance substantially.

Iglide M250 bearings are primarily employed in agricultural or sports and leisure equipment, gardening tools, mountings for the construction industry, medical technology and packaging and textile machines.

Features and benefits of iglide M250 include:
  • excellent vibration dampening characteristics, 250 times better than steel;
  • impact resistant;
  • high abrasion resistance;
  • impervious to dirt, dust and chemicals;
  • maintenance-free, dry operation;
  • quiet operation;
  • suited for all types of motion: rotary, oscillating and linear;
  • cost-effective; and
  • dimensionally interchangeable with most metal bearings.
