I would like to look at the standard dimensions of the iglidur® gears and the selection of gears in the shop or place an order directly.
I cannot find the dimensions I want in the shop or I need an individual gear for my application.
I would like to receive further information about the iglidur® gears and read through the most frequent questions and answers about gears.
Do you need a gear made of another material, with a different hub design or with specific dimensions?
We are happy to take care of your special solution.
Actuators make up a large proportion of vehicle elements that have to be supplied with power and signals. The small units convert electrical signals and pulses into mechanical movements and are responsible for actuation of the throttle valve(s) during acceleration, the automatic closing of boot lids and doors or the shifting and positioning of a seat. The areas of application are manifold, actuators can be found in all areas of the vehicle.
Amongst other things, gears with usually complex geometries are responsible for movement and the transmission of force. By increasing the efficiency of actuators and minimising noise , iglidur® polymer gears have proven their worth in actuators in the automotive industry.
For our iglidur® gears, you do not need a single drop of lubricating oil. Not only our users, but also the environment profit from this. In addition, our tribologically optimised materials produce less abrasion, as a result of which less energy is needed.
iglidur® gears have proven their worth in different gearboxes and have also been tested under realistic conditions of use in the igus test laboratory. For example, torque fluctuations, efficiency and backlash of the gearboxes with the iglidur® gears are electrically measured and evaluated. The gathered experience values allow continuous optimisation of our gears and the use in wear-intensive continuous application.
iglidur® gears are characterised by their special wear resistance in use. Due to their special material composition of base polymers, fibres, fillers and solid lubricants, they have very low wear properties and do not require additional lubricants. This extends maintenance intervals and reduces expensive downtime minutes.
What is a gear?
A gear is a round component that has uniformly distributed teeth around its circumference. It transfers force between two rotating gears or between a gear and a rack. Depending on the application, further types are used.
What kinds of gear are there?
The most common kinds of gear/toothed components are:
"We were looking for a material that was lubrication-free, robust and cost-effective, so we opted for the iglidur® plain bearings from igus"
