Easy mounting of ball pins by hand, thanks to the clip-on spherical bearing bushing from igus28/10/2015

The new lubrication- and maintenance-free igubal® clip-on spherical bearing bushing (ZCLM 06-10) from igus can be easily mounted manually. The '06' stands for a ball pin of size M6 and the '10' stands for the plate thickness of the holding fixture in millimetres. A cylindrical bore with 12 millimetre diameter, is all that you will need. "The ball pin is inserted into the bushing, then simply pushed until it clicks into the holding fixture," says Thomas Preissner, Product Manager of the igubal spherical bearings division at igus, while explaining the novelty. "Typical application areas for this are coupling rods, double spherical bearings or other solutions for driving connecting rods. The nice thing is that the designers have great freedom in designing their geometries." Inside the bushing there is a spherical holding fixture for the ball pin, that securely holds it in position. igus offers the matching ball pin in galvanised or stainless steel.

Lubrication-free solution for prototyping Even the dismantling is as simple as the assembly! After pressing together the latching lugs offset by 90 degrees at the bottom side of the bushing, you can pull out the ball pin together with the bushing from the holding fixture. This option is an important feature particularly in prototyping. The holding force of 120 N remains intact even after repeated assembly and seperation. The clip-on spherical bearing bushing is made of the iglidur J material from igus. Like all other plain bearing products from igus, the material is self-lubricating and dry running, therefore, subsequent maintenance can be avoided. More dimensions of the igubal clip-on spherical bearing bushing are already being planned. igus provides more special solutions on request for geometries or materials of the ball pin.
