Bearings and bushings face ever-growing performance demands in industrial products and components. MetalTek has extensive experience casting OEM bearings and bushings for a variety of applications. The power transfer market including bushings, bearings, and gears demands casting components featuring high wear-resistance. We provide a very broad range of wear-resistant bronze alloys (and many proprietary ferrous alloy grades) used in bushings and bearings for the process equipment, aerospace and pulp and paper industries.
Our bearings are best for demanding applications where friction is extreme. We are the world’s exclusive supplier of high performance Bearium® bronze. Customers specify MetalTek bronze materials and centrifugally cast components for bushings and bearings because of their long life in demanding environments. We even helped NASA’s Space Shuttle Crawler by installing our proprietary Bearium B-10 on their sleeve bearings.
Our casting capabilities – including centrifugal, sand, investment or continuous cast – allow us to manufacture OEM bearing and bushing components that fit your application and the exacting requirements inherent in any heavy-duty environment. Contact MetalTek’s Metal Experts to find out which particular metal and casting process should be used for your bearing needs.
