Product description
iglidur® A180 | The FDA-compliant all-rounder
Plain bearings made of iglidur® A180 are suitable for use in direct contact with food. They are therefore the ideal solution for bearing points on machines for the food and packaging industry, medical equipment manufacturing, small household appliances, etc. Even where wet cleaning contact with damp media is the order of the day, the iglidur® A180 is characterised by the lowest moisture absorption.

Tolerances and measuring system
The installation dimensions and tolerances of the iglidur® plain bearings depend on the material and wall thickness. For each material, the moisture absorption and the thermal expansion are decisive factors. Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be installed with a smaller bearing clearance. The rule for wall thickness: the thicker the wall of the bearings, the larger the clearances must be.
Testing methods

Assembly
iglidur® plain bearings are press-fit bearings. The inner diameter is only adjusted to the appropriate tolerance after pressing into the housing. The press-fit excess dimension can be up to 2% of the inner diameter. This ensures the secure press-fitting of the bearings. Axial or radial movements in the housing are reliably avoided.
