Advantages GGB Engineered Materials Offer
Ideal tribological solutions provide excellent wear life with improved corrosion resistance for smooth operation in harsh environments.
Lower system costs
GGB bearings reduce shaft costs by eliminating the need for hardening and machining grease paths. Their compact, one-piece construction provides space and weight savings and simplifies assembly compared to roller bearings.
Lead-free GGB bearings comply with increasingly stringent environmental regulations such as the EU ELV directive and RoHS directive. Seamless operation and higher productivity with less downtime can be achieved by GGB`s maintenance-free solutions.
Thanks to our global manufacturing plants we can offer short transport ways that reduce CO2 footprint.
Improved system performance and service life
Superior wear resistance and high shock load capacity provide extended bearing service life and improved reliability. Additionally, excellent low friction properties reduce power losses for improved equipment performance.
GGB can provide customers with a viable engineered solution, working alongside global OEMs and their distributors. Our application and tribology experts can develop a design proposal, and from prototype delivery to serial production and assembly, our experts will accompany you.
HPMB® — A fiber reinforced composite bearing, the high-precision HPMB® features machinable inner and outer diameters for superior application precision, circularity and cylindricity tolerance (with pre-machined available for immediate installation).
SBC WITH GAR-MAX® — A sealed GAR-MAX bearing that excludes contamination to offer maintenance-free alternative to greased bronze and roller bearings. The self-lubricating SBC WITH GAR-MAX® features excellent resistance to shock loading and misalignment and high static load capacity. GAR-MAX® features excellent resistance to shock loading and misalignment and high load capacity. With great chemical resistance, it’s ideal for hydraulic cylinders, backhoes, skid steer loaders, and front-end loaders.
GGB-CSM® — A thick walled monometal bearing, the self-lubricating and maintenance-free GGB-CSM® is produced by metallurgic powder and features homogeneously distributed solid lubricant (graphite, MoS2) in the metallic matrix. With lead-free and corrosion resistant alloys available, it can handle temperatures up to 600°C (depending on alloy).
GGB-SHB® — A case hardened steel bearing, the GGB-SHB® features a plain or grooved sliding layer and is ideally suited for lubricated applications where there is low rotation speed with high specific pressure.
HI-EX — A Metal-Polymer hydrodynamic composite bearing, the lead-free HI-EX® features marginal lubrication for good wear and chemical resistance under thin film conditions. Suitable for use with low viscosity fluids, it’s approved to standard ASTM E595/ECSS-Q-ST-70-02C and rated for a maximum temperature of 250°C.
DX®10 — A Metal-Polymer grease-lubricated bearing solution, the lead-free DX®10 features enhanced chemical and erosion resistance and is ideal for harsh environments. From piston and oil pumps to reciprocating bushings, it features great wear and fatigue performance with high loads and temperatures.
