HPMB® - New Filament Wound Bearings for Industrial Applications

April 29, 2015


GGB HPMB Bushings for Industrial Applications

GGB Bearing Technology has developed HPMB®, a new self-lubricating filament wound plain bearing material with a machinable liner, providing tight dimensional control and class-leading tribological properties for industrial applications. 

HPMB® liners are easily machined by GGB or after bearing installation by end-users with readily available single point tools. The filament wound construction of the bearings offers high strength and impact resistance, high load capacities, excellent shock and edge loading resistance, low friction and wear, long service life, negligible water absorption and excellent corrosion resistance.

The bearings are self-lubricating, minimizing maintenance and eliminating lubricants that be harmful to the environment. They can be used in dry or water-lubricated applications with high loads, tight clearances and slow rotation or oscillatory movements. Potential applications include railroad stabilization systems and brake linkages, injection molding machines, guide bushings, hydraulic cylinder pivots and valves.

GGB HPMB self-lubricating hydro bearings in filament wound are available as cylindrical bushings

HPMB® bearings are available in cylindrical and flanged configurations on a made-to-order basis.  For more information about HPMB® bearings, visit www.ggbearings.com or contact marketing@ggbearings.com.
