GGB Bearing Technology principal engineer for tribological materials Michael Kim will present a paper on GGB’s composite bearing design at the upcoming HYDRO International Conference and Exhibition, to be held at the FIBES Congress and Exhibition Centre in Seville, Spain, Oct. 9-11.GGB will also be exhibiting in Booth 150.
Entitled “Composite Bearing Design with Improved Tribology and Machinability for Aggressive Applications,” the discussion will include insight into how the combined improvements in machinability and tribological performance relate to enhanced functionality, design flexibility and performance in industries such as hydropower, energy storage and beyond.
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.
The paper was co-authored by Elena Wapner, application engineering leader for GGB’s renewable energy and aerospace segments.
Each year Hydropower & Dams International Journal organizes the HYDRO International Conference and Exhibition to highlight influencers in the hydropower industry, as well as provide updates and information on energy, power, waterpower, renewable energy and dam engineering.
