Benefit from stable bearings with the best lifetime!
The advantages of WB8 D&E bronze bearings compared to our closest competitor, according to independent analyses.
100% TIGHTER MICROSTRUCTURE WITH HOT ROLLING
The WB8 series features more comprehensive material processing stages, and is at least
LONGER LIFETIME & LOWER RISK
A 43% longer lifetime has been demonstrated in third-party lifetime testing. D&E has conducted technical analyses for more than 50 years, and – together with Wieland Werke in German and our industry-leading customers – has developed a pioneering bronze bearing, manufactured with 100% material verification via internal raw material production and processing.
WB802-T-bearings are intended for radial and axial movements in constructions where exceptional long lubrication intervals are wanted.
The bearings are wrapped of a coldformable homogenous bronze, which because of this will obtain exceptional material properties. The standard sizes are fitted with holes, which are dispersed in a special way over the whole bearing-surface. These holes serve as lubricant reservoirs i.a. to rapidly build up a lubrication film in the moment of start and there-with reduce the start friction.
The properties of the WB802-material, together with the procedure of wrapping and calibration, make this type of bearing especially suitable for constructions, where high loads and relatively slow movements are occurring.

Tolerances: Bearings pressed into housing H7 get tolerance H9. Recommended tolerance for the shaft IT 7 or IT 8 with position of tolerance e or f.
Lubrication: Additional lubrication ought to be done through the shafts or radial through the housings. All customary greases can be used e.g. greases with additives of graphite or molybdenum-disulphide.
