igus releases the A181 series of iglide bearings

July 15, 2016 - igus’ iglide A181 bearings are designed to offer the ability to provide wear and corrosion resistance along with maintenance-free operation. The A181 material meets requirements set by the FDA and EU regulation 10/2011 EC, as well as RoHS specifications.

For maintenance-free performance without external lubrication, iglide A181 uses integrated dry lubrication, non-metallic, RoHS-approved materials and tribologically-optimized plastic blends to create a true all-around performer in both rotary and pivoting movements in bottling, packaging, and processing applications.

iglide A181 bearings are available with or without flange, and are now available in nearly 200 metric and imperial dimensions, with diameters available up to 50 mm or 2 inches. For further dimensions, or customized components, the A181 material is also available in bar stock in a range of diameters.
