By putting iglide J sliding elements together, slewing ring bearings with an inside diameter of 500 mm up to almost any measurement can be manufactured.

The sliding elements made of the tribo-optimized plastic iglide J run maintenance and lubrication-free. The counter-faces of the slewing ring bearing are primarily made of aluminum and are hard-anodized, providing good tribological and sliding features.
