High-performance fabric FLUROGLIDE®
Application advice and the procurement of maintenance-free Spherical Plain Bearings and Rod Ends are a matter of trust. As in no other area of Spherical Plain Bearing products, the same designations, dimensions and even standards (such as DIN ISO 12240-1) are often as misleading for the user as in this product field. This is because the same designations, dimensions or standards do not automatically guarantee the same technical characteristics in the maintenance-free Spherical Plain Bearing and Rod End sector. This applies in particular to load ratings and even more so to the resulting service life.
Why is this so?
These FLUROGLIDE® products include both
- maintenance-free high-performance Spherical Plain Bearings of dimensional series E (GE..EW-2RS / alternatively GE..UK-2RS), dimensional series G (GE..GW-2RS / alternatively GE..FW-2RS) and
- large Spherical Plain Bearings of dimension series C (GE..CW-2RS / alternatively GE..DW-2RS) and
- maintenance-free axial and angular contact Spherical Plain Bearings to DIN ISO 12240-3 and 12240-2.
In addition, there is the heavy-duty Rod End series (dimension series E, DIN 12240-4) EI..EW-2RS (alternatively GIR..UK-2RS) with female thread and EA..EW-2RS (alternatively GAR..UK-2RS) with male thread.
Cylindrical Sliding Bushings - also equipped with the FLUROGLIDE® high-performance fabric - complete the premium product range.
These maintenance-free high-performance Spherical Plain Bearings and Rod Ends are used in demanding applications in mechanical engineering, in ship and harbour cranes, in the materials handling sector, in special vehicle construction and in rolling mills.
