Wear-re­sis­tant igus iglidur RW370 bar stock for main­te­nance-free spe­cial so­lu­tions in rail­way ve­hi­cles

Ap­pro­pri­ate ma­te­ri­als are needed to pre­vent fires in trains and trams. For ex­actly such cases, Treotham of­fers the spe­cial igus ma­te­rial iglidur RW370 not only in the form of plain bear­ings in its prod­uct range, but now also as a lu­bri­cant- and main­te­nance-free bar stock for the pro­duc­tion of spe­cial so­lu­tions. This wear-re­sis­tant ma­te­rial com­plies with the fire pro­tec­tion stan­dard EN 45545.

With the high-per­for­mance iglidur RW370, Treotham has a bear­ing ma­te­rial suit­able for ap­pli­ca­tions in trains and trams. It fea­tures high wear re­sis­tance and low co­ef­fi­cients of fric­tion in dry run­ning. The proven ma­te­rial is very hard-wear­ing and lu­bri­ca­tion-free. An­other im­por­tant ad­van­tage of the ma­te­rial: It meets the fire pro­tec­tion stan­dard EN 45545 re­quired for ma­te­ri­als used in rail­way tech­nol­ogy. For the pro­duc­tion of cus­tomised spe­cial so­lu­tions, Treotham now of­fers iglidur RW370 as bar stock and sheet in dif­fer­ent sizes and thick­nesses, so the de­signer has the op­por­tu­nity to de­sign shapes freely. The main­te­nance-free bar stock can be used on the bo­gie or in cou­plings of trains and trams, for ex­am­ple. Here they al­low the car­riage to slide onto the bo­gie and pivot the cou­pling in the event of lat­eral mis­align­ment of the rails or cor­ner­ing.

Wear-re­sis­tant spe­cial pro­files man­u­fac­tured quickly

In ad­di­tion to spe­cial parts made of bar stock, Treotham can also pro­vide spe­cial pro­files of dif­fer­ent shapes from iglidur RW370. Th­ese can be used for guid­ing train or tram doors, for ex­am­ple. In this ap­pli­ca­tion, the ma­te­rial plays other spe­cial func­tions: Com­pared to metal pro­files, it re­duces weight and is also qui­eter in op­er­a­tion. In ad­di­tion, spe­cial pro­files can save costs com­pared to other pro­duc­tion pro­cesses by re­duc­ing re­work and ma­te­rial scrap.
