SMS is a distributor of the series of D-glide maintenance free composite plain bearings.
These materials can in all respects match conventional metallic plain bearings. Loads
or on a similar and in many cases higher level, friction is lower and wear is less
and all without lubrication or any other form of maintenance. We not only provide
the materials but also the knowledge to make optimum use of them. This can range
from selecting of a truck, to designing the complete bearing construction for 600
tons offshore sheavers.
The D-glide bearings are in a rapidly increasing pace becoming the first choice for
most plain bearing applications.
SMS has a large stock of high quality pressed and woven friction material in sheet
and roll form and of finished brake blocks and shoes for most common industrial
and maritime brake and clutch brands.
In our modern workshop all work regarding brake linings, including riveting and vulcanisation,
is being carried out.
Also SMS is increasingly becoming the central point customers turn to with problems
regarding brake systems such as early wear, squeaking brakes, glazing linings, replacement
of asbestos friction materials and so on.
Due to our long experiance in this area we have build up a lengthy track record of
solving problems that appeared insoluble.
