Filament Wound Composite Bearings


Filament Wound Composite Bearings


 

A filament reinforced thermoplastic strip is wound about a rotating mandrel to build up multiple layers of the strip and form the structure of a bearing. In the world of composite bearings, the filament wound bearings are defined as multiple filaments are wound in a helix configuration to improve the strength of bearing wall. The liners are made of PTFE/Nomex/Polyester and intertwined with glass filaments to produce a reinforced structure. This multiple-layer design offers the bearing reinforcement for good reliability and longer service lifetime. The bearings are designed for maintenance-free solutions with preset precision inner diameter dimensions.
