Bearing made of iglidur® Tribo-Filament saves weight and installation time

Formula Student racing car  

Two factors were considered in the selection of the products mounted on the Formula Student racing car of Team Running Snail of the Amberg-Weiden University: the weight and the utility. Since the chassis was first constructed for the 2015 season, we looked for a solution for mounting the chassis stabiliser, whose function was to swing both axes.
 
Thus we printed a bearing in a 3D printer using iglidur® Tribo-Filament, machined a bit, and then glued on. Compared to a welded alternative, it could save both weight and workload. In addition we achieved the necessary tolerances. The printed bearing could hold without failure already for one year. Numerous igubal® and iglidur® bearings and a drylin® rail are also installed in the pedals.
