EZ FZ is a manufacturer of jibs, accessories, remote controls, monitors, fixtures and other products for the film and video industry. iglidur® plain bearings from igus® are used in its camera jibs. The bearings replace bronze bearings, which had to be lubricated a lot and regularly serviced. The switch to the self-lubricating iglidur® plain bearings makes the jibs lighter, cheaper and maintenance-free.
“We see a number of benefits from the iglidur® plain bearings,” says Steve Bonin, owner of EZ FX, “they reduce friction, are lighter than bronze and are cleaner with everyday use. They allow considerable cost savings to be made, which is great for both us and our customers. “
