Bearings are among the most critical components in a mechanical assembly, but are often one of the last design components selected. However, one important aspect is frequently not considered — tribology. Doing so can improve the efficiency and life-cycle of tribological contacts, thus improving high-level application.

Composites bearings are used in a wide range of industries for their strength, superior wear and friction characteristics, and their ability to operate without external lubrication. Filament wound composite bearings with the most effective tribological performance have historically been limited in their dimensional tolerance by the processing capabilities inherent to the winding process ...
GGB Bearing Technology’s principal engineer for tribological materials, Michael Kim, made a presentation on composite bearing applications at the 2017 HYDRO International Conference and Exhibition, held October 9-11, 2017, at the FIBES Congress and Exhibition Centre in Seville, Spain. ...

Metal-polymer bearings have been relatively successful in replacing traditional leaded bronze or bi-metal bearings in many lubricated applications. Until recently however, PTFE based metal-polymer plain bearings were unable to match ...
Polymer bearings with a PTFE-based running surface were first introduced as a breakthrough in scroll compressor performance approximately 30 years ago. These bearings consisted of the polymer surface, porous bronze interlayer and steel supporting layer...
Traditional compressor bearings, such as rolling element, leaded-bronze or bi-metal bushings, are greatly affected by wear in marginally lubricated conditions at bearing locations in compressor applications. Metal-polymers offer a unique advantage...
