Orkot Composite Bearings & Bushings
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions offers composite bearings and thermoplastic bearings for a wide range of applications. Bearings are fitted within an application to allow constrained relative motion between two or more parts. They are mechanical devices that support another part and/or reduce friction.
TurciteR-B SlydwayR is a low friction linear bearing strip C for use
primarily, on the ways and gibs of machine tools. It provides low
friction, stick-slip-free operation, long life and minimum wear.
TurciteR-B SlydwayR is applied using a two- part epoxy resin after
cleaning and degreasing the bare metal surface thoroughly.
TurciteR-B SlydwayR is dimensionally stable, maintenance free and can be operated with or without lubrication.
Trelleborg's range of bearing materials includes Turcite® and HiMod® engineered thermoplastic bearings and Orkot® synthetic composite bearings.
Orkot Marine and Hydro Bearings
Orkot is a composite consisting of technical fabrics impregnated
with thermosetting resins, evenly dispersed solid lubricants and
other additives. OrkotR bearings offer significant advantages
over traditional metal bearings. All are dimensionally stable,
have excellent wear resistance and outstanding low-friction
characteristics, giving them unrivalled performance in dry running
conditions or with boundary lubrication. With virtually no swell in
seawater, they are ideal for marine and hydropower applications.
