Metals and Bimetals

GGB offers a broad range of sizes, forms and materials in monometallic and bimetallic bearings.

GGB's Metal and Bimetal Bushings for high loads

For the demanding specifications of working within severe working conditions with minimal or no maintenance, our broad range of Metal and Bimetal bearings improve reliability and durability while lowering operating costs. Offering excellent corrosion resistance in industrial outdoor applications and in water, marine and offshore environments, these bearings can be made in many sizes and forms, including thin-walled, thick-walled, flanged, cylindrical, sintered and oil-impregnated, and more.


Resistant to shock loads  Eliminate Corrosion

Bimetal Bearings

For heavy loads and shock loading conditions, bimetal bearings have anti-corrosion capabilities and are easy to install, making them ideal for emergency replacements.



Lubricated Operation  Extended Service Life

Bronze Bearings

Hard and strong, bronze bearings have long lifespans and resist shock, impact, wear and corrosion (and require an external lubricant at installation and during operation to reduce friction and wear).



Maintenance Reduction  Design Freedom

Sintered Bushings

Used when high speed operation is required and in limited-space and variable-load applications, sintered bearings feature large pores that can be filled with lubrication (which is then released under applied force). Oil-impregnated sintered bearings offer maintenance-free operations and are suitable for complex shapes.



High Load Capacity  Low Friction High Wear Resistance

Steel Bushings

For harsh operating conditions and high specific loads with oscillating and low frequency motion, steel bushings have high load capacity and very good resistance to fatigue at high temperatures.
