iglidur® PRT - Polymer slewing ring bearing

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 the counter-running surfaces of the iglidur® J gliding elements are hard-anodised. All fastening screws are made of stainless steel.
Typical sectors of industry and application areas:

Slewing ring bearings for material handling

Slewing ring bearings for automation technology

Slewing ring bearings for assembly technology

Slewing ring bearings for stagecraft and lighting technology

Slewing ring bearings for energy generation and much more.

When should I use a polymer slewing ring bearing?

  • When a ready-to-install solution is sought
  • As robust, corrosion-resistant bearing unit for high loads
  • For extreme overturning torques
  • For application in alternating ambient media
  • For maintenance-free and lubrication-free applications
  • For low to medium surface speeds

When not to use it?

  • For fast, continuous rotations
  • For temperatures higher than 180°C
  • When only low drive forces are available with high loads
  • For the highest demands on roundness and precision
