EAST PROVIDENCE, RI—Plastics specialist igus has announced the release of its dry-tech box, an ingenious sample kit designed to help engineers find the right material bearing for their application. The box contains a set of state-of-the-art card overlays, which filter the bearing choices by criteria–similar to the igus online configurator.

The dry-tech sample box includes a complete array of iglide bearings, ranging from iglide H, which is ideal in corrosive environments, to iglide A350, which can withstand temperatures up to 356 º F, and are perfect for the food industry. The box also contains a user-friendly bearing guide that highlights the key properties of each bearing making the search for the perfect bearing simple and precise.

All igus bearings have dry-running properties, making them lubrication-free, maintenance-free, cost-effective, and long-lasting. iglide bearings are all fully lab tested in the areas of durability, friction, and stability, and are at the core of igus’ plastics development.
