Product description
iglidur® L500 | For extreme rotational speeds
iglidur® L500 is a bearing material for high speeds and fast sliding movements with low loads. Due to the low thermal expansion and low moisture absorption, bearings can be manufactured with minimal potential to expand. Applications which feature these advantages are fans, small motors, fast-running sensors or the magnet technology.

When to use it?
  • For rotating applications at high
    speed
  • If highest service life is required
  • For high pv values with low loads
  • At operating temperatures up to +250  °C
    (long-term, short-term up to max. +350  °C)
When not to use?
  • When a universal bearing for high temperatures is required
  • When medium to high pressures occur
  • For oscillating applications

Tolerances and measurement system
The installation dimensions and tolerances of the iglidur® plain bearings are a function of the material and wall thicknesses. For each material, the moisture absorption and the thermal expansion are imperative. Plain bearings with low moisture absorption can be designed with a minimal amount of tolerance. For wall thickness, the rule is: The thicker the bearings are, the larger the tolerances must be.
Testing methods
 
Assembly
iglidur® bearings are press-fit bearings. The inner diameter adjusts only after press-fit in the proper housing bore with a recommended tolerance. The before press-fit oversized dimension can be up to 2% of the inner diameter. In this manner, the secure press-fitting of the bearing is achieved. Axial or radial shifts in the housing are also prevented.
