Thanks to their durability, reliability, low friction, extended wear life and maintenance-free properties, GGB high-performance bearings can be used in a vast number of general industrial applications across a broad range of industries including Civil Engineering, Construction, Chemical Engineering, Electrical & Electronic, Food and Beverage, Forestry, Metal Working, Robotics, Medical and Hospital, Mining, Military, Packaging, Pharmaceuticals, Primary Metals, Pulp and Paper, Plastics and Rubber, Recreation and Sports, Rail and Tramways, Textile and more.
Ideal for use in a diverse range of applications, our customers benefit from the many advantages of the low friction properties found in GGB’s polymer bearings and metal-polymer plain bearings. GGB maintenance-free industrial bearings are used in applications such as electrical switchgears, solenoids, textile machinery, food processing equipment, traffic restrictor and pipe hangers and many more including:
And many more...
Heil Farid European Company Limited has been manufacturing refuse collection vehicles for more than 30 years. Heil Europe selected GGB’s High-Strength GAR-MAX® maintenance-free bearings for their high static load capacity and excellent resistance to shock, misalignment, chemicals and contamination.
Bestec GmbH specializes in the design and manufacture of vacuum systems for surface analysis and deposition techniques in the research and development of semiconductors. To load its vacuum system, a 200 kg special steel cover plus a 50 kg lifting frame are raised and swung aside. GGB replaced the existing motorized bearings with two DU® self-lubricating, metal-polymer plain bearings in EXALIGN™ anti-friction bearing housings. The GGB bearings are maintenance-free, smooth running, durable and more cost-effective than the motorized bearings they replaced.
With short lead times and quick turnarounds, our customers’ maintenance downtime and inventory carrying costs are immediately reduced. With a global production platform, GGB are ideally positioned to serve customers efficiently and professionally, anywhere in the world. Our maintenance-free plain bearings comply with strict environmental standards while offering many essential benefits:
Low friction and high wear resistance
Lower system cost
GGB bearing experts are available to provide solutions to meet each application’s specific needs with a vast range of standard or custom bearings. GGB industrial bearings offer good wear and friction performance over a wide range of load, speed and temperature conditions and the self-lubricating material is resistant to wear, chemicals, cavitation, flow erosion and fatigue.
