Bearing & Coating Solutions for Crane Applications
In industrial industries where crane applications are being utilized, crane design engineers must manage a multitude of unique challenges from greasing systems, to sealing issues, to managing NVH. All these challenges pose big impacts on the operations bottom line. 

No matter the challenge, we’re committed to working alongside our partners to incorporate innovative and cost-effective tribological solutions. In this video, we review a seaport crane application where the partner needed to develop a complete system solution. The system would benefit from a grease-free solution that could withstand contact friction with no stick slip effect. Since environments where cranes are utilized tend to be dirty, the system also needed improved sealing to keep it contaminant free. 

Through collaboration, we were able to create a system utilizing GGB’s TriboMate® solution, a traditional GGB plain bearing paired with our TriboShield® polymer coatings featuring a sealing solution from a trusted partner company. The utilization of material formulations on both surfaces in contact exponentially improved the system’s performance while reducing environmental toxins – specifically into the water/sea/ocean in this case.
