Brake and bearing service

Railway Applications

Specifically for applications in the railway engineering sector, we have developed a Teclite composite variant that is resistant to extreme weather conditions. The resins in this composite are suitable for high temperatures and can also be used in extremely cold conditions.

Composite material

Teclite composite bearing material is an ideal alternative for the bronze bearings traditionally used in the railway sector. Our composite material is lightweight (approx. 1/6 the weight of steel or bronze), is self-lubricating and is capable of withstanding severe loads in a dirty environment.

The composite material does not corrode and offers a longer service life than traditional bearing materials. The material can also cope well with heavy vibrations and high shock loads.

BBS Industrie b.v. not only manufactures standard bearings and wear parts, but also tailored products for specific applications in the passenger, cargo and railway industry.
