9th competition for novel plastic plain bearing applications

For the ninth time, we are looking for industrial applications using plastic plain bearings that stand out for their technical and economic efficiency, their creativity and the novelty of their design.

The aim is to show the technical superiority of plastic machine elements:

Has a simple plastic bearing resolved a long-standing problem? Has a plastic plain bearing been the only way to create an application or improve it?

Last date of entry is 22 February 2019
We look forward to receiving your submission

Best regards.
