iglidur® PRT polymer slewing ring bearings application examples

iglidur® PRT is a slewing ring bearing with the proven advantages of the igus® polymer bearings. The sliding elements made of iglidur® J operate absolutely free of maintenance and lubrication. All housing parts are made of aluminium, and hard anodised giving the iglidur J sliding elements the perfect running surface. All fastening screws are made of stainless steel.
