igus introduces RW370 bearing material for railway fire protection

October 13, 2016 - In industries where special safety requirements are implemented, special component materials must be used. To comply with the EN regulation 45545, the European fire protection standard for railway vehicles, igus has developed and released their self-lubricating bearing material, iglide RW370. In addition to meeting these new industry standards, is also resistant to wear, chemicals, and other media.

Bearings made from RW370 have been extensively tested at the igus laboratory in Cologne, Germany, and they are well suited for door guides and hinges, as well as in rotating joints and adjustment mechanisms for seats and tables. In addition to the RW370 bearings, igus offers a wide range of components to suit the rail industry, including heavy duty bearings for gear and brake systems, and lead screw units for motion application in switchgears and drives for doors and ramps. Online product selection and lifetime calculation tools are also available to aid in the selection process for applications in the railway industry and beyond.
