Heavy duty bearings

Heavy-duty applications include lock gates, bridges or crane hinge points.
In situations where traditional heavy-duty bearings including bronze and composite bearings fail, BBS can offer a solution: bearings produced from ToughMet®, until now primarily used in aerospace applications where failure is not an option.

With a maximum static load of 820 N / mm2 and an impressive PV factor of 9.6, these heavy-duty bearings are ideal for a wide range of heavy-duty industrial applications, including:

  • Mining & quarrying
  • Heavy construction
  • Motorsport
  • Offshore oil & gas
  • Marine

The ToughMet material is more resistant to saltwater corrosion and hydrogen embrittlement than the majority of copper alloys. In certain environments, corrosion speed is comparable to that of stainless steel and nickel alloys. In addition to these heavy-duty bearings, BBS Industrie also offers other types of bearings for heavy industrial applications, including:
