Reduce automatic greasing system failure
GGB grease-free bearings and tribological coatings solutions can reduce the need for frequent and costly greasing system failures on high-performance cranes and heavy-duty hydraulic machinery.
Extend longevity in the most demanding environments
Built to withstand high friction, even in the harshest offshore environments.
Hard chrome ban
With high toxicity levels, high costs, and more bans likely coming in the next decade —chemical conversion coatings are becoming a thing of the past. GGB polymer coatings solutions are the most effective alternative.
Enhance manufacturing productivity
Industrial applications can enhance manufacturing capabilities by enabling mass custom production with less downtime.
Grease-free bearings and polymer coatings help reduce costs associated with lubrication maintenance. They’re also a critical preventive measure against catastrophic failures of crane components.
Keep your operation running safely and optimally with surface solutions designed to outperform and outlast, without failure.
Your unique surface solution
At GGB, our tribological bearings and polymer coatings solutions are precisely designed to meet and exceed operating expectations in performance, durability and longevity—even in the most demanding on and offshore environments. Reducing friction and minimizing automatic greasing system failures means safer operation, fewer repairs and extended wear life. Add it all up and it all translates to a better bottom line, too.
The difference is clear with Tribology
GGB can provide customers with a viable tribological solution with our range of standard TriboShield or our paired TriboMate polymer coating solutions for just about any crane—from smaller chain hoists to enormous Gantry crane operations. GGB’s TriboMate® paired coatings are specifically designed to work with and enhance the performance of GGB products—bearings and TriboShield® coatings.Our environmental-friendly coatings can also replace chrome in your application. To meet the need for high load, self-lubricating bearings that provide low wear rates, we offer our line of Fiber Reinforced Composite bearings. GAR-FIL bushing offers very good friction and wear properties in these demanding conditions. Because the environment for these cranes is usually dirty, we introduced our SBC sealed fiber reinforced composite bearings and assistance in how to insert it. Our application and tribology experts can partner with you and develop a unique design proposal.
