igus is introducing the MKM double-flange bearing. This press-fit bush is pushed into position, then the second flange is turned down in one step.
The MKM bearing is therefore axially located on both sides and pre-tensioned; it has a tolerance compensation of the sheet thickness. Furthermore, it is available in two materials, the standard iglidur M250 material or an electrically conductive material that can go through an E-Coat paint process.
These iglidur MKM double-flange bearings are suitable for use in sheet metal structures that need to be painted after fitting - such as in car seat frames, roofing systems and furniture.
Having the same maintenance-free, lubricant-free and wear-resistant characteristics as other iglidur bearings, the MKM bushes can be specified with the aid of online tools such as the igus life calculator.
