igus Japan improves wear resistance of resin ball bearings
igus Corporation of Japan (Headquarters: Tokyo) has launched new products 'xiros D180' and 'xiros F180' of the resin ball bearing 'xiros' series. D180 has improved wear resistance to 4 times that of existing standard products. The F180 achieves electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection characteristics through the use of conductive materials. The xiros series previously consisted of three products, namely 'xiros A500' which can be used in high temperature environments up to 150°C, 'xiros B180' which can be widely used in standard environments, and 'xiros C160' which has excellent chemical resistance. ”, this time by adding two new products, the entire series of products has reached five. In addition to the increase in varieties, the size types are also increasing. At present, the product line of this series has a total of more than 100 products of different types, sizes and shapes. The wear resistance of xiros D180 is 4 times that of xiros B180. The inner and outer wheels are made of resin developed by igus, the cage is made of polyamide (PA), and the rolling elements are made of glass or stainless steel. The upper limit of the ambient temperature that can be used is up to 80°C. The xiros F180 uses conductive resin as the material of the inner and outer wheels, and the rolling elements are made of stainless steel. It can be used in the environment of -50℃～+80℃, mainly used in semiconductor manufacturing, papermaking, textile and glass industries. The price of xiros D180 is 2,600 yen (about 196 yuan, excluding tax), and the price of xiros F180 is 3,470 yen (about 262 yuan, excluding tax).
