In 4 steps to the right plain bearing



Select or specify size

Specify your desired dimensions in whole or in part. From over 8,500 catalogue sizes, we will recommend the right one for you or calculate further on the basis of an individual special part.



Define parameter & motion profile

How big is the load to be carried or supported? How fast or slow is the rotating or pivoting movement? And what are the temperatures in your application? The more details you provide, the more precise the service life calculation will be.



Select shaft material & housing material

Select the planned shaft material and the material for the housing into which the plain bearing will later be pressed in. On this basis, we calculate the service life of the plain bearing and show you the alternatives you can use to improve it.  


Compare service life & select desired plain bearing

Compare at a glance. Do you need the most cost-effective bearing that works? Or are performance reserves more important to you? You are in control.
