Insights from the igus® lab
Linear guide: wear measurement on special shaft
In order to offer the tribologically best solution, the wear behaviour of drylin® liners made of iglidur® X (XUM) and J (JUM) was tested directly on the customer's shaft made of AISI 304.

iglidur® X has an extremely low wear rate of 0.21 µm/km.
Test results in detail
E4.48 L in the test
e-chain® E4.48L holds 86% more tensile force
In a comparison test, the E4.48L e-chain® faced a competitor product. Strength, unsupported length, fracture test and tensile behaviour were tested.

The result: The E4.48L was superior to the competitor product in all tests.

Where is igus® hiding?
Polymer ball bearings in a wave pool
Ambient air is pumped through valves at the bottom of this pool into the water to create waves. For the system to function properly, the bearings in the drive mechanism must be resistant to moisture and chlorine. Perfect conditions for xiros® pillow block bearings and iglidur® J plain bearings.
