Up to 40% more cost-effective & 80% lighter than metal bearings

Spherical bearings made of high-performance polymers - versatile and cost-efficient

igubal spherical bearings are maintenance-free, self-aligning bearing elements manufactured completely from polymer. Depending on the choice of material, use at temperatures of up to +200°C is possible. Over and above this, the entire igubal joint system is insensitive to dust and dirt and resistant to corrosion. Thanks to its lubrication-free properties, there are no obstacles to use in liquid media. The igubal expert will guide you through the few steps necessary to calculate the service life of spherical bearings online.
