Solar panels

drylin® lead screw drives and igubal® spherical bearings in solar technology

Technical data:

  • What was needed: Smooth operation under extreme ambient conditions
  • Requirements: Insensitive to dirt, maintenance-free, smooth movement
  • Industry: Solar technology
  • Success for the customer: drylin® lead screw technology and igubal® spherical bearings ensure a perfect operation at extreme temperatures and weather influences due to wind, water, dirt and dust.
Go to solar panels: With the help of a solar panel, sunrays can be converted directly into electrical energy. Several panels result in a solar module, which can be mounted statically or dynamically. The application shown here is a moving solar module, i.e. the solar panels automatically move with the sun. This workflow must function smoothly.

Go to igubal® spherical bearings


Extreme temperatures and weathering by wind, water, dirt and dust push metallic bearings to their very limits when they are used in solar power systems.


igus® polymer bearings can be used in very extreme environments and with high loads and are maintenance- and lubrication-free.
