Igus GmBH: Detectable Plastics

Under its ball and spherical bearing series, Igus offers plastic products that are both lubricant-free and detectable. These guarantee that no lubricants or plastics enter the production chain during operation or in the event of a system failure.

Easily traced with standard metal detection methods, the plastics can be used in rod end bearings, clevis joints, flange bearings, spherical bearings, and pillow block bearings.

Being lubrication-free, the plastics need not be actively lubricated, and further save costs as they are maintenancefree plain bearing materials. They are also compliant with the EC Directive 10/2011 and FDA specifications for repeated contact with food.
