Plain bearings are highly versatile as they can operate under dry, greased and liquid lubricated conditions. They are suitable for all types of movements such as sliding, rotating, oscillating or reciprocating motion and can support different loads and varying temperature configurations. Their thin wall construction allows compact design and weight reduction.

The principal benefits offered by plain bearings are low friction for improved equipment operational efficiency along with high wear resistance for greater reliability and extended service life.
