Thermoplastic Bushes

WMG® Bearings

Our WMG range of plastic bearings can be used across a wide range of applications and industries.

These thermoplastic bearings are suitable for applications requiring high abrasion resistance in atmospheres where dust or other particles are a constant problem. Our WMG range has a very low level of dynamic friction and almost zero stick slip characteristics.

We can also offer bearings manufactured in many different types of plastic material to suit various applications and can be machined or moulded depending on quantities required. 

For fitting information, please refer to the Bearing Selector.
