GGB UK

GGB helps create a world of motion with minimal frictional loss through plain bearing and surface engineering technologies.

GGB’s wide choice of bearing materials includes metal-polymer, engineered plastics, fiber reinforced composite, metals and bimetals, bushing blocks and thrust plates as well as specialized housings and assemblies all available in standard or custom sizes and shapes, and manufactured to precise spécifications.

Plain bearings are usually cylindrical in shape and contain no moving parts. Standard configurations include cylindrical bearings, flanged bearings, thrust washers and flanged thrust washers and sliding plates of various shapes. They also can be made to custom designs.

With R&D, testing and production facilities in the United States, Germany, France, Brazil, Slovakia and China, GGB partners with customers worldwide on customized tribological design solutions that are efficient and environmentally sustainable. GGB’s engineers bring their expertise and passion for tribology to a wide range of industries, including automotive, aerospace and industrial manufacturing.

  1. Bearing Assemblies

    Bearing Assemblies

    Engineered as a solution to conquer misalignment reduction when high demands are placed on bearings, GGB's UNIMINI and EXALIGN® self-aligning shaft bearing assemblies offer improved equipment performance over standard bearing assemblies by reducing stress and friction. 

    Designed to be used with our wide range of metal-polymer bearings and fiber reinforced composite bearings, GGB's self-aligning bearing assemblies remain insensitive to the angular misalignment of a shaft, automatically micro-adjusting to movements. This reduces torque and friction, offering greater reliability, longer service life and lower cost of ownership.

    Offering superior performance in a wide variety of applications, GGB's self-aligning assemblies are available in both standard and custom configurations. There are standard shaft-bearing configurations available — MINI and UNI bearing housings designed for universal installation, and EXALIGN® plummer or pillow blocks and flanged mounting housing units for specific assembly requirements.
