Design efficient and long-lasting agricultural machinery with highly engineered, maintenance-free plastic components from igus®. Our durable iglide® bearing materials, embedded with solid lubricants for dry-running operation, can absorb high shock and impact loads. They’re also resistant to dirt, chemicals and corrosion.
We offer plain bearings, shafting, self-aligning bearings, linear bearings, linear actuators, and lead screws and nuts that can be used in a variety of agricultural applications, including tractor cabins and doors, disc harrows, fertilizer spreaders, hay rakes, and more. igus® also offers complete bearing assemblies, which include GFK shafting, a nitrided pin with greater corrosion resistance than nickel, zinc and steel.
In addition to bearings, we offer cable management solutions guaranteed to last up to 36 months. e-chain® cable carriers come in a variety of sizes ranging from 5mm inner height for the smallest installation spaces. chainflex® flexible cables are designed for flexing and can handle any type of motion.
All igus® products are rigorously tested each year inside our 41,000 sq. ft. lab in Cologne, Germany, allowing for extended, predictable service lives.
Vibration dampening and load-bearing clevis joints used in a fertiliser spreader AXIS 50.1 W. Realised to date: more than 10 years of service life at a temperature of -20°C and a block load of 4,000 N.
The company igus® has been successfully collaborating with the company Lemken, since 2008. Numerous devices from Lemken are equipped with igus® plain bearings, among others, the cultivator Karat 9.
This disc harrow can easily be adapted to any width. The drylin® R liner used in the sliding bearing of the disc harrow is maintenance-free, precise, durable and very load-bearing, thus guaranteeing a long service life.
The iglide® Z plain bearing used in this planting machine was more cost-effective than the use of an axial bearing and is also dust-resistant, moisture-resistant and self-lubricating.
Maintenance-free and resistant to dust and dirt, the iglide® G plain bearings are used in bale trimming machines of the company Optimal-Vetrieb Opitz GmbH.
The company Agrobot based in Spain uses the E-Z e-chain® cable carriers for this harvester, which are maintenance-free and cost-effective.
