iglidur PRT slewing ring bearings are ready-to-install slewing rings for lubrication-free, dry operation. A slewing ring is used when an application has to perform a rotary movement horizontally. Frequent areas of use are:
What differentiates igus slewing rings from those of other manufacturers is the modular kit principle: with diverse accessories such as spacer rings, universal sliding elements and drive pins, it is possible to customise any pre-harnessed assembly.
But pre-harnessed slewing rings can also be configured individually and purchased with the PRT expert.
The benefits over the previous model
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.
By entering just a few parameters relating to installation space, load, speed and environment, you can configure the appropriate slewing system for your application and, in the same step, receive a reliable statement on the expected service life of the slewing ring bearing. For use in robot joints, we offer complete slewing rings with drive, in diverse sizes and designs.
Defects are detected before they occur, unscheduled downtime and failures are avoided, repair times are shortened due to early intervention, machine availability increases and maintenance costs decrease. Scheduled maintenance inspections become unnecessary, employees can be more effectively employed, and machines and systems have a longer service life.
We carry out tests so that you do not have to experiment. Find out, how high-performance polymers are tested in the industry's largest test lab. In addition to standard tests, we also carry out individual customer tests.
