Watch GGB's Presentation on Composite Bearings for the Hydropower Industry

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.
 
Titled Composite Bearing Design with Improved Tribology and Machinability for Aggressive Applications,” the presentation examined how the use of self-lubricating, fiber/resin composite bearings enhance functionality, design flexibility and performance in industries such as hydropower, energy storage and beyond for less system wear and improved bearing life.
 
The structure of GGB’s fiber reinforced composite bearings such as HPMB®, enable the bearings to support high static and dynamic loads in hydropower settings, and provide the ability to machine composite bearings to a tight dimensional tolerance. Recent developments in self-lubricating fiber/resin composite bearing technology have included fiber construction to overcome machining limitations while providing superior tribological performance.
