Igus introduces new polymer material optimised for railway applications

Igus has introduced a new variant of its iglidur tribopolymer material, RW370, that complies with EU fire protection standard EN 45545 for railway vehicles. Resistant to harsh media and extremely durable, the new material is well-suited to a wide range of bearing applications within rail transportation systems, including door guides and hinges, as well as in rotating joints and adjusting mechanisms for seats and tables. 

“In transportation, mechanical components must be stable, strong and reliable, capable of withstanding high cycle rates, harsh environments and fluctuating weather conditions,” says Robert Dumayne, director of drytech bearings at Igus. “Without requiring external lubrication, igus drytech high-performance polymers deliver wear-resistant and maintenance-free continuous operation, improving efficiency as well as being versatile and cost-effective.” 

Igus offers a wide range of components to suit the rail industry, including heavy-duty bearings for gear, brake and coupling systems, as well as maintenance-free lead-screw units for motion applications in switchgear and motor drives for points, doors and ramps. Online product selection and lifetime calculation tools are available to aid engineers in the selection process for rail industry applications.
