Treotham introduces the new lubrication-free igus iglide F2 ESD bearings
designed for use in anti-static operation scenarios. Featuring electrostatic discharge
properties, the iglide F2 bearing is available in 14 bearing diameters and a
machinable bar stock to ensure maximum design flexibility.
Electronic components can become damaged when exposed to uncontrolled
static discharges, which can also obstruct production processes and contribute
to fire risk.
The iglide F2 ESD bearings are suitable for industries such as textile
manufacturing where flying debris and particles are attracted by statically
charged bearings and cling to them, causing expensive maintenance work and
The iglide F2 contributes to continuous active discharge of
electrostatic charges. The low surface resistance, ranging between 103 and 109
‚Ñ¶ depending on component geometry, reduces the charging voltage level and
contributes to depletion of the charge.
The iglide F2 ESD bearings are also maintenance-free and self-lubricating
with excellent wear properties. Extremely resistant to dust and debris, the
bearings can withstand high loads and speeds.
