DRIE-D Mechanical Motion

Boom Hinge bearings

One of our bearing solutions is the boom hinge bearing. These bearings play a critical role in the smooth operation of heavy machinery, such as cranes, excavators, and aerial lifts, by enabling controlled rotation and movement of the boom.

Boom Hinge Bearings are designed to withstand heavy loads, extreme operating conditions, and repetitive movement, ensuring the longevity and reliability of the equipment. Our bearings are meticulously engineered using high-quality materials and advanced manufacturing techniques to meet the demanding requirements of the industry.

The design of our Boom Hinge Bearings with  D-glide® composite incorporates a precision-machined raceway that facilitates smooth rotational motion, minimizing friction and wear. This allows for efficient power transmission and precise control of the boom’s movement, resulting in improved productivity and operator safety.

Furthermore, our Boom Hinge Bearings are equipped with sealing systems that provide exceptional protection against contaminants, such as dust, dirt, and water. This feature enhances the durability of the bearings, extending their service life and reducing maintenance costs.

Boom Hinge Bearings with D-glide® composite

Our Boom Hinge Bearings with D-glide® composite technology take performance to a whole new level. D-glide® composite is a state-of-the-art polymer material specifically engineered for demanding applications, offering outstanding wear resistance and low friction properties. The incorporation of D-glide® composite in our bearings ensures smoother and quieter operation, reduced energy consumption, and increased equipment efficiency. The low friction coefficient of D-glide® composite significantly decreases the wear on the bearing surfaces, resulting in extended bearing life and reduced downtime for maintenance and replacements. This translates into substantial cost savings for our customers and allows them to maximize their operational uptime. In addition, D-glide® composite possesses excellent self-lubricating properties, eliminating the need for additional lubrication and reducing the risk of contamination. This not only simplifies maintenance procedures but also contributes to a cleaner and safer working environment. With our Boom Hinge Bearings featuring D-glide® composite technology, operators can expect enhanced equipment performance, improved load handling capabilities, and reduced noise levels. The smooth and controlled operation of the boom ensures precise maneuverability, increasing productivity and operational efficiency.
