MAXAM® Plain Bearings

MAXAM® Plain Bearings support radial loads that are well aligned and operate at relatively low speeds, enabling these bearings to replace ball bearings in various applications:

  • Wheels/Axles
  • Shafts

May be used as “fixed” or “float” bearings.  Can operate in high-temperature environments where thermal expansion of components is a factor.

MAXAM Plain Bearings are available in a variety of different designs:

  • Standard two-piece
  • Custom three-piece
  • Other specially modified designs are available to meet a wide range of operating conditions and load requirements.
