Plastic products in agricultural engineering

The use of plastic plain bearings facilitates 8 x longer service life

Especially in agricultural applications, you need solutions that can stand up to rough conditions, such as dirt, shock and edge loads. The absence of lubricants and a long service life are equally important.
In many applications, metallic bushings or recirculating ball bearing guides can be replaced by self-lubricating plastic plain bearings.

The advantages of igus® plastic plain bearings, specially for agricultural applications are:

Dry-running and corrosion-resistant

Resistant to dust and dirt

High mechanical stability

Vibration dampening

Resistant to dust and dirt

Balance of inclinations and bending

Custom dimensions according to drawings... even for small quantities

Harvesting machine

This harvesting machine processes strawberries, from picking in the field to on-site packaging. First, it picks each individual fruit, using a computer-controlled detection program. Then the strawberries are transported via belts to the packaging trays. The picking arms have to have flexibility to prevent damage to the fruit while in motion. With limited operating space, a compact design was necessary. The compact dimensions of igus® E-Z Chain® were perfect for this application.
