EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Igus® Inc. offers iglide Q specifically designed for high-load applications. Iglide Q is an economical, maintenance-free alternative to bronze, metal-backed and custom injection-molded bearings. Even at maximum loads of 14,500 pounds per square inch (PSI), iglide Q boasts the lowest coefficient of friction of any iglide plain bearing, enabling it to deliver a superior performance with limited wear.
Iglide Q is well-suited for oscillating applications and can be used where both shock and impact loads are present. Iglide Q also is impervious to a wide range of chemical offenders, including organic solvents, fuels, oils and fats and, like igus’ entire family of iglide bearings, is lubrication-free, corrosion-free and dirt-resistant.
In continuous motion, iglide Q operates within a permissible temperature range of –40 to +275 degrees Fahrenheit and can withstand short-term exposure up to 311 degrees Fahrenheit. Iglide Q can be paired with an array of different shaft materials such as stainless steel or hard-anodized aluminum. Iglide Q’s high-load capacity makes it a viable choice for material-handling machinery, scissor lifts, motorcycle stands, lift tables, amusement park rides and many more.
Iglide Q is available in a variety of both metric and inch sizes.
