GGB Bearing Technology (Heilbronn, Germany), formerly Glacier Garlock Bearings, now offers two new metallic bearing materials. Its GGB-CSM™ series is made of solid material, and its bimetal GGB-CBM™ series features sliding layers sintered onto metallic backings. Both are self-lubricating for maintenance-free performance and provide high load capacity, a broad temperature range, and corrosion resistance. The GGB-CSM and GGB-CBM bearing materials are manufactured using a powder metallurgy process to produce a metallic matrix with homogeneously distributed solid lubricant (graphite, MoS2), which forms a lubricant film with the bearings’ motion. Potential applications include general mechanical engineering, steel plants, steel works and civil engineering, turbines (water, steam, gas), pumps and compressors, packaging and handling equipment, among others.
