Reliable in combination with dirt, vibrations, low temperatures and heat

Conditions in agriculture are rough and temperamental. Therefore, it is even more important for components to work reliably and withstand the daily conditions. Our technical products can do exactly that: low temperatures, heat, ice and dirt simply do not faze them, as with their high-performance polymers and without additional lubrication, they have been designed especially for this.
Maintenance-free polymer plain bearings can be used with heavy-duty applications in soil cultivating machines or front loaders. drylin linear systems can adjust monitors in tractor cabins. Energy chains and chainflex cables are ideal for supplying field spraying systems with energy and liquids. Application options are versatile.

Benefits of igus products:

  • Dry-running and corrosion-resistant
  • Insensitive to dust and dirt
  • UV and weather-resistant
  • High mechanical stability, very resilient
  • Vibration-dampening
  • Compensation of misalignment and deflections
  • Long predictable service life
  • Easy assembly

White paper

Service life maximisation of shafts and plain bearings for agricultural machines

One of the most common causes of failure and downtime in agricultural machinery lies in the wear of the shafts and bearings. You can learn in our white paper how you can avoid this problem with our lubrication-free plain bearings and increase the service life of both components.

Successfully in use in the agricultural industry

Intensive cultivator on the field

No more wasting time with lubricating bearings

igus has been successfully collaborating with Lemken since 2008. Various Lemken machines are equipped with igus plain bearings, among them the cultivator Karat 9. In the overload elements, the metal bearing points previously used had to be lubricated up to one hour per day to prevent wear and corrosion. By switching to lubrication-free polymer plain bearings, the farmer saves valuable time. Furthermore, the dirt resistance and stability of the plain bearings increase service life and dependability.

Heavy load up to 15 tons possible

Maintenance-free and resistant to dust and dirt, the iglidur G plain bearings are used in hinges, locking systems and hydraulic cylinders of bale trimming machines from Optimal-Vertrieb Opitz. They replace red brass solutions, that were produced in-house and required both a relatively large installation space and lubricants that polluted the environment. The new polymer bearings need no lubrication and withstand all edge loads without problems.
