igus® energy chains and plastic plain bearings for agricultural engineering

8 times longer service life for agricultural machinery by the use of plastic plain bearings

Especially in agricultural applications, you need solutions that can stand up to rough conditions, such as dirt, dust, heat, shock and edge loads. igus® makes this possible with its energy chains and plastic bearings that are characterised by their outstanding resilience and long service life. These products are used for instance in tractors, disc harrows, fertilisers, hay rakes, field sprayers, seed drills and other agricultural equipment. In many applications, metallic bushings or recirculating ball bearing guides can be replaced by lubrication free polymer plain bearings. We would like to show you how to improve your technology and save costs at the same time.

Your advantages with igus® polymer plain bearings and energy chains:

  • Dry-running and corrosion-resistant
  • Resistant to dust and dirt
  • Extremely durable
  • Quiet running
  • Compensates misalignment and deflections
  • Easy installation
  • Longer life

Here, you can see some examples of our customers' applications.

AXIS application

More than 10 years of service life under heavy load

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.

Application disc harrow

Easy assembly and high service life

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.

Application root ball transplanter

Heavy load up to 15 tons possible

Maintenance-free and resistant to dust and dirt, the iglidur® G plain bearings are used in bale trimming machines of the company Optimal-Vetrieb Opitz GmbH.

Application cultivator Lemken

Many years of successful cooperation

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

Application Maschio Gaspardo

Without lubrication and cost-effective

The iglidur® 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 lubrication-free.

Application planting machine

Maintenance-free and cost-effective

The company Agrobot based in Spain uses the igus® E-Z chain® energy chains for this harvester, which are maintenance-free and cost-effective.

Designing a true maintenance-free pivot

Engineers working in the agricultural industry can benefit greatly from implementing true maintenance-free pivots within their machinery. Maintenance-free pivots have several benefits that can help significantly increase efficiency within the agricultural field. Here, we will compare true maintenance-free designs with alternative designs, as well as go into the requirements for creating a true maintenance-free pivot.
