  • Technical guide bushes/slide bearings made of plastic or hard fabric

    We manufacture guide bushes and plain bearings from various materials as well as slotted or drilled on request.

    Manufactured from hard fabric or high-performance plastics
    guide bushes are particularly impressive because they are maintenance-free and wear-resistant. Low friction values and low weights combined with high corrosion and chemical resistance make them particularly popular. They are mainly used where subsequent lubrication is not possible. We manufacture guide bushes entirely according to your individual specifications without minimum quantities. We are happy to implement special requests such as the use of materials with certain conformities, engravings also with consecutive numbers, a slot for easier installation or the insertion of lubrication holes for you.

    Advantages of plastic guide bushes/slide bearings

    • cost-effective
    • low power-to-weight ratio
    • maintenance-free dry running
    • high mechanical damping
    • corrosion resistant
    • chemical resistant
    • low coefficient of friction
    • wear-resistant
