Plain bearings, linear guides and coupling joints by igus have been designed for dynamic use and tough environments. The high-performance plastics in use withstand extreme temperatures, vibrations, shocks, dirt and corrosion. They are lubrication-free, durable, maintenance-free and quiet; in addition, the low weight of the plastic bearings leads to a higher performance of the entire construction and a reduction in CO2 emissions.
In the course of e-mobility and hence quieter motors, requirements regarding components and modules have increased: they have to be as noiseless as possible and ideally have dampening properties (BSR: buzz, squeak and rattle). Noises always arise where components interact with each other and friction occurs. igus plastics minimise coefficients of friction and hence result in less wear and a quieter operation.
