Thick-walled plain bearings

Radial and thrust bearings as thick-walled plain bearings with high inherent stability and special bore profilesare used for applications with high circumferential speeds or thrust loadings. Principal applications are turbines, gearboxes, turbo-compressors, fans, vertical generators, electrical machines or turbochargers.

ZOLLERN thick-walled radial and axial plain bearings:

  • Plain bearings for general mechanical engineering, usually consisting of two bearing shells
  • Thick-walled design ensures high shape stability
  • Standard sizes for easier design in mechanical engineering
  • Usually supplied in a combination of steel/white metal and for special applications in steel/lead bronze with or without galvanised sliding layers
  • With special bore profiles for any application: cylindrical bore (on request with hydrostatic relief), lemon bore, multiple-area slide profile
  • Processed ready to install without the previously usual “scraping”
  • On request, we calculate dimensions, bores and oil flow
  • Manufactured according to your drawings or our own design suggestions
  • On request with temperature measuring device and oscillation sensor
