The Industrial market is continuously growing and facing the need for higher quality and reduced maintenance. Innovations are needed to become CO2 neutral within the next 30 years, being at the same time cost efficient. So manufacturers search for innovative solutions to constantly optimize existing products and launch future concepts into the market.
At Saint-Gobain, we are helping manufacturers meet the needs of this changing marketplace by collaborating on their specific requirements.
Based on our experience and knowledge, we are capable to design, test, prototype and supply globally to Industrial manufacturers components that make a big difference to quality and performance.
NORGLIDE® Bearings and RENCOL® Tolerance Rings are effectively used in numerous industrial systems with pumps, valves, e-motors or just any pivots and joints of machinery. Their durability under load, corrosion resistance, and ability to comply with mating tolerances, are primary reasons for their popularity.
Noise Free components made for a squeak-free and quiet movement, while Smart Design means our tailor-made solutions allows us to offer a wide choice of materials and dimensions optimizing size, weight and cost. Long Life means components operate at optimum efficiency again and again with no degradation in performance. Perfect Fit provides the compensation of mating component tolerances and misalignment.
A NORGLIDE® Bearing is used as a thrust washer or cylindrical bearing for different types of valves such as butterfly or ball valves, providing low and constant friction over longest lifetime and high corrosion resistance.
A NORGLIDE® Bearing as a half-shell is used within axial piston pumps providing high load capabilities and constant low friction in lubricated conditions.
A RENCOL® Tolerance Ring is used to easily mount the stator to the shaft / housing. The stainless steel tolerance ring compensates for the different thermal expansion of dissimilar materials.
A RENCOL® Tolerance Ring is used to mount a bearing to relax mating component tolerances.
The pivot uses a NORGLIDE® Bearing, to eliminate free play and to maintain constant torque. The flanged PTFE bushings support axial and radial loads for a consistent operation over the complete lifecycle.
NORGLIDE® as liner for spherical bearings: a material that allows you to design and build maintenance-free spherical and rod end bearings.
