Strong UV radiation, heat, wind, dust: solar plants have to operate under extreme environmental conditions. igus offers different and customised solutions that meet these exact requirements. Our motion plastics impress with their long service life, freedom from maintenance and low costs. Application scenarios for dirt-resistant and lubrication-free plain and spherical bearings are tracking systems, floating photovoltaic plants and cleaning systems.
Tech up, Cost down - for example with lubrication-free, customised pillow block bearings for one-axis solar trackers and rod end bearings for actuators.
You can find more information on these and further product innovations at our 400m2 trade show stand. You can either explore it virtually, on your own or together with our industry expert. Make an appointment now for a guided virtual tour with individual consultation:
See for yourself the quality of our products and try out our maintenance-free igubal polymer spherical bearings.
In the company's own 3,800 square metre igus test laboratory, the service life, wear resistance and load capacity of igubal pillow block bearings for solar modules were examined under real loads of the daily motion sequence, simulated in a time-lapse.
The number of movements achieved under a load of 1.5 tons corresponded to a service life of 72 years.
