deva.glide® materials consist of highly wear-resistant cast copper alloys whose sliding surfaces are uniformly provided with solid lubricant deposits in macro distribution. They are suitable for applications with high static and dynamic loads.
With maintenance-free, self-lubricating high-performance sliding materials from the deva.metal® product range, it is now possible to realize sliding bearing concepts that operate reliably over long periods of time.
The friction or the coefficient of friction μ depends on the normal force. In polar friction pairings, the adhesive portion of the coefficient of friction is very high due to the attraction of the friction surface at low normal force.
Since 1970, we have been producing plain bearings with a polymer coatings, either with initial lubrication or without any lubricant at all. Our commitment to the environment extends not only to the manufacture of lead-free products, but also to environmentally friendly production.
Today's heavy-duty industry is driven by efficiency and effectiveness. But with the increasing awareness of our environment, it stands to reason that fat-free solutions are the right way to protect our nature.
In the past, lead was used to improve the metallic running properties. deva.metal® materials were and still are partly produced with the addition of lead powder. New alloys are now being produced without lead. Lead is considered harmful to health. Furthermore, it causes a grain change in deva.metal®. Read here.
Pipe and cable laying vessels play an important role in the emerging offshore wind farm industry. These various systems for pipe-laying vessels rely on the safe operation and long service life of self-lubricating and maintenance-free bearings.
Maintenance-free spherical plain bearings are becoming increasingly important in industrial applications. Increasingly high demands are being placed on machines and systems in terms of service life and maintenance. Self-lubricating spherical bearings from the DEVA® system offer the best conditions for maintenance-free operation.
The current rapid development of wind turbines poses many challenges for suppliers, as the operating conditions of wind turbines are becoming more and more demanding. Therefore, turbine manufacturers need to use high-quality and reliable components. DEVA self-lubricating bearing materials best meet these requirements and offer maximum reliability for wind turbines.
