PRLog - Nov. 19, 2009 - igus has published new additions to its TechTalk Design Advice Series, created and written by igus product managers. The two most recent installments for the company’s bearings line are “The Science Behind Triboplastic Bearings” and “Increase Speeds and Accelerations with Plastic Bearings”, which both aim to educate design engineers by offering technical insights and tips that make igus' products easy to use in any application.
Every year, igus develops hundreds of new plastic compounds.
“The Science Behind Triboplastic Bearings” discusses the science behind plastics’ tribological properties and tries to overcome some misconceptions about plastic bearings. The full article is available at www.igus.com/
“Increase Speeds and Accelerations with Plastic Bearings” compares the performance of standard ball bearings versus plastic linear bearings as they react to high accelerations and decelerations. Since igus’ linear bearings are capable of unlimited accelerations without any negative effects, one customer was able to increase throughput by 20 percent.

igus also has three other online forums for its cable carriers, continuous-flex cables and spherical bearings. The entire design advice series can be found at www.igus.com/
