GGB white paper composite bearing design

Composite Bearing Design with Improved Tribology and Machinability for Aggressive Applications

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 ...
