iglidur PRT slewing rings are ready-to-install bearings for lubrication-free dry operation. The design is not based on metallic rollers or balls, but on maintenance-free sliding elements made of tribologically optimised iglidur materials and rings made of lightweight anodised aluminium or stainless steel. iglidur materials are universally applicable and can be used in combination with high temperatures, moisture, chemical contact or in the food industry.
The Linatronic 735 from Krones is used to check reusable bottles. Are there objects, smallest foreign bodies or lye residues in the bottles? Are there cracks in the glass or has something splintered? Are there dirt residues on the side? PRT slewing rings are used to open the Linatronic. They ensure lubrication-free and maintenance-free bearing points and make a significant contribution to hygienic design.
The compact design of the PRT-02-30 makes it the ideal flip chart solution. Thanks to ready-to-install delivery, it also did justice to easy assembly. In addition, due to the plastic sliding elements made of iglidur material, maintenance work is no longer necessary after installation.
When upgrading a customer robot, an iglidur PRT slewing ring was incorporated in the axis for the first time. An iglidur PRT-02-20 is now used in the rear axis of the robot. In order to optimally meet the requirements of EEVE, igus designed a custom solution with reduced required drive torque. It ensures that the rear wheel can rotate freely even in harsh operating conditions and without any maintenance.
An iglidur® slewing ring, PRT-01 with an outer drive ring made of aluminium and sliding elements made of iglidur® J were used to develop a 3D head that makes angled cuts and holes using a high-pressure water jet.
The success for our customer: an automatic insulation material cutter that cuts the insulation boards according to the CAD data.
The PRT slewing rings can withstand a static axial load of 27,000 newtons and a dynamic axial load of 7,000 newtons.
The TV mount can also be pivoted, telescoped and rotated up to 360° at the same time. The mount impresses with innovative unique selling points such as freedom from lubricants to avoid contamination of technical devices, as well as freedom from maintenance and quiet operation for optimal comfort.
In a great variety of industries, polymer slewing ring are used to technically refine solutions and save costs.
Due to sliding elements made of plastic and even lighter with aluminium housing.
No noises caused by metal friction or metal balls.
Polymer sliding elements are insensitive to dirt and moisture.
