The earth turns without friction.
For everything else, try our bearings.
Almost nothing in technical constructions moves without them: Virtually every rotary movement is enabled and optimized thanks to innovative sliding bearings.
Sliding bearings put in incredible performances, something that isn't readily apparent to laymen. In Mecca, DEVA sliding bearings play a crucial role in the function of the world's biggest tower clock. With a diameter of 43 meters and hands that weigh up to 7.9 metric tons, this represents a major technical challenge. DEVA spherical sliding bearings also ensure that the 1,310-meter-long suspension bridge spanning the Hardanger Fjord in Norway is mounted securely. And in the Kaiserschleuse lock in Bremerhaven, DEVA sliding bearings are responsible for making sure that the lock gates, which weigh 2,400 metric tons, keep moving reliably both above and below the water. DEVA maintenance-free, self-lubricating bearings of various sizes and materials move the world in diverse industries.
They have proved themselves in innumerable applications and are constantly being evolved and optimized.
Personal consultation is essential to us. We will be delighted to answer your questions concerning the use of sliding bearings in any industry. From heavy duty to power generation.
