Igubal flange bearings have been developed for the support of shaft ends or for shafts lead-through. They are maintenance free, light weight and cost effective. They have a high strength under impact loads and are chemical resistant. They should be used when there is a low installation space, when dirt resistant bearings are needed, when splitting components are needed and to adjust misalignment. They cannot be used if temperatures are higher than 200°C, if an integrated fixing collar is required, if dimensions above 50mm are necessary or if rotation speeds higher than 0.5m/s are required.
