The box contains a set of state-of-the-art card overlays, which filter the bearing choices by criteria - similar to the igus online configurator.


The dry-tech sample box includes a complete array of iglide® bearings, ranging from iglide H, which is ideal in corrosive environments, to iglide A350, which can withstand temperatures up to 356 º F, and are perfect for the food industry. The box also contains a user-friendly bearing guide that highlights the key properties of each bearing making the search for the perfect bearing simple and precise.
