High load ratings, durable and with a long operating life, even in the most challenging ambient conditions. These product advantages mean that ELGES plain bearings, cylindrical roller bearings, and spherical roller bearings are particularly suitable for applications in buildings and structures.
ELGES Spherical Plain Bearings
ELGES spherical plain bearings have high load carrying capacity, excellent wear and frictional characteristics as well as outstanding dry running characteristics. ELGES large spherical plain bearings with X-life certification are available from a shaft diameter of 320 mm (radial) and 220 mm.
No Maintenance Thanks to ELGOGLIDE
Maintenance-free ELGES spherical plain bearings with ELGOGLIDE ® have a sliding layer based on PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), which is characterized by excellent sliding characteristics. The new feature of ELGOGLIDE® is not the Teflon, but the combination of Teflon and support fibers embedded in a resin matrix that is bonded with adhesive to the steel support body. The unique selling propositions of this sliding layer developed by ELGES are therefore very high permissible contact pressures at very low friction values and absolute freedom from maintenance.
ELGOGLIDE® facilitates a significantly longer life compared with our competitors’ products, especially in the case of higher loads.
FAG spherical roller bearings make a convincing case due to high load carrying capacity, low friction and long lubrication and maintenance intervals. They can compensate misalignments and shaft deflections due to their angular adjustment facility and are available with special coatings such as thin layer chromium plating.
