Bearings from igus are proving to be quite an asset to the solar energy industry.
Corrosion free and light weight, these state-of-the-art plastics bearings are resistant to extreme temperatures as well as ultra violet light, water, dirt and dust – making them a good fit for solar panels.
Amongst the most innovative bearings for solar technology, the drylin leadscrew nuts and igubal pillow block and rod end bearings have been carefully designed by igus to endure the most extreme environments, offering an effective alternative to metallic bearings.
Suitable for high load applications, igus’ bearings are self-lubricating and maintenance free; these properties help increase service life whilst reducing costs and protecting the environment.
