Self-lubricating, maintenance free ball bearings for confined spaces now available from igus

New xiros thin ring bearings offer smooth motion and feel in control systems

For control systems on automobiles and other applications where space and weight restrictions can be problematic, new thin xiros ball bearings from igus are available in accordance with DIN 625 for rotary controls.

The new xiros 67 and 68 thin ring bearings are suitable for temperatures ranging from -40º - 176º F, and are available in two materials (xirodur B180 and S180) with inner diameters ranging from 4-30mm, with custom dimensions and integrated solutions available upon request. Customers can select from glass, 316 stainless steel, or high-strength plastic balls depending on application requirements.

xiros 67 and 68 bearings have been extensively tested to last for over 100 million cycles (within permissible loads) and proven an excellent, maintenance-free solution for all types of control systems and beyond. “As with all xiros bearings, the frictional torque of the new thin ring bearings is very low, explained Nicole Lang, product manager for plastic bearings at igus Inc. “This allows for excellent haptics when used on rotary controls, since no breakaways can be felt in the movement of the bearings.”
