The polymer bearing range from Treotham and igus  offers a wide
variety of engineering solutions that are maintenance free as they require no
lubrication. With numerous specially engineered compounds used, the polymer
bearings are adaptable to a diverse range of applications.

The igus iglidur
range of polymer plain bearings help improve the performance of products whilst
reducing costs

  • Require no maintenance
  • Dirt resistant, corrosion free and lubrication
  • Lightweight and environmentally friendly
  • Performance is predictable to enable precise
    calculations of the product life cycle

Iglidur plain bearings are available in three forms, sleeve
bearings, flanged bearings and thrust washers. There is a wide range of
standard stocked sizes in a wide range of varying materials. The sleeve and
flanged bearings are designed to be press fit into a machined housing.

Treotham offer a
large range of specially designed iglidur compounds suitable for a varied range
of applications, while the standard materials are suitable for most applications

  • General purpose
  • Long service
  • Temperature resistance
  • Water resistance
  • Food contact
  • Special applications

There are compounds
for high loads, extreme temperatures, underwater use, low coefficients of
frictions, chemical resistance and long service life

  • Lightweight, compact and economical
  • Available in over 30 different materials from
    FDA compliant to high temperature
  • Offered in a range of specialised designs

The Iglidur Product range also includes the following: 

  • 3D printer filament
  • Clip bearings
  • Slewing rings
  • Flange bearings
  • Piston rings
  • Stock bars
  • Special solutions

Igubal Spherical Bearings are self-aligning components made
of high performance plastics and compared to conventional spherical bearings,
are far more economical with a low purchase price. The Igubal Spherical
Bearings are maintenance and lubrication free, insensitive to dust and dirt and
are corrosion free.

Igubal Spherical
Bearings can be used as an upright, pivot or flange bearing and are available
in a range of configurations

  • Rod Ends
  • Clevis Joints
  • Pillow Blocks
  • Flange Bearings
  • Pressfit Spherical Bearings
  • Thrust Bearings
  • Spherical Balls
  • Detectable

Rod Ends are
maintenance free, self-lubricating and ideal for use in rough environments due
to their high tensile strength and high strength under impact loads

  • Corrosion and chemical resistant
  • Can be used to compensate misalignment and edge
  • Suitable for use in combination with pneumatic
    cylinders and gas pressure springs
  • Can be used to realise rotating, oscillating and
    linear movements

Suitable for use in combination with Series E rod ends,
Igubal Clevis Joints are lightweight and easy to assemble. Clevis Joints have
good vibration dampening and noise dampening qualities with a high tensile

Clevis Joints should
be used if high stiffness is required, dry running is required with no
lubrication and in combination with pneumatic cylinders and gas pressure

  • Food industry
  • Packaging applications
  • Heavy duty applications
  • Automotive industry
  • Disposal engineering
  • Automation

Igubal Pillow Block Bearings are cost-effective bearing units that are easy to install and are able
to compensate alignment errors and prevent edge loads

  • Maintenance and lubrication free with high
    stiffness and strength
  • Can be used in liquid media as they are chemical
    and dirt resistant
  • Can be used for high radial loads
  • Good vibration dampening qualities
  • Suitable for rotating, oscillating and linear
  • Suitable for adjusting misalignment and if split
    housings are needed

plastic ball bearings are single-row grooved ball bearings made up of an outer
ring, inner ring, the cage and the balls.

The product benefits:

  • Lubrication and
    maintenance free
  • Enabling a maximum service life
  • Reduces the coefficient
    of friction 
  • Resistant to corrosion 
  • Can be used underwater
  • Non-magnetic and light weight

Drylin Linear Plain Bearings

Designed for dry running, Drylin Linear Plain Bearings glide
rather than roll, operating on glide pads. As they are dry running, the
components are protected against grease and oil, disallowing dust to cling to
surfaces. Drylin Linear Plain Bearings have no restrictions in terms of minimum
stroke length and are almost inaudible during operation.

Drylin T Rail Guides
are classical linear guides with identical dimensions to standard commercial
ball guide systems, and can be used in almost all industries

  • Lubrication free, corrosion resistant and lightweight
  • Adjustable clearance and high static load
  • Insensitive to dirt
  • Feature automatic clearance adjustment and a
    service life up to 501,000km
  • Available in standard, heavy duty and miniature

Drylin N offers
extremely low profiles extruded from aluminium that are available in several

  • Carriages are lubrication free, lightweight and
    corrosion resistant
  • Small mounting height between 6-12mm in a
    variety of carriage options
  • Preload, over-moulded, replaceable liners,
    threaded holes and mounting holes options available
  • Available in 4 sizes: 17, 27, 40 and 80mm

The Drylin E
maintenance-free Linear Drive System from Treotham offers a dry running
solution for a variety of applications

  • Lubrication and maintenance-free
  • Cost effective
  • Lightweight and robust
  • Ready to install units fitted with cables and
    limit switches
  • Easy to calculate and configure with online
