Treotham Automation is now supplying the latest slewing ring bearing range from igus, which are wear resistant, low maintenance and designed for compact installations.
The PRT-04 range from igus have sliding elements between the inner and outer bearing rings that use iglidur J plastic, aiming to minimise friction and wear without the use of lubrication and can withstand a maximum surface pressure of 35MPa.
In comparison to its PRT-01 range, igus says the new bearings range can ensure the moving mass is significantly reduced when using a 100mm inner diameter, and the bearings are also ideal for sorting systems, control panels and compact installations with medium loads.
The PRT-04 range is 50 per cent smaller in installation height, 60 per cent lighter and is available with inner diameters of 50 to 300mm.
Treotham has FDA and ESD-compliant versions of the product with no minimum order quantity, and further offer a range of accessories for the slewing ring bearings.
