Design better performance into your next project

Polygon’s construction equipment bearings help operators stay productive while reducing maintenance costs.

Polygon bearings are engineered to be self-lubricating and maintenance-free, providing an ideal solution for many construction and heavy equipment applications. Manufacturers of construction and other off-highway equipment trust Polygon composite bearings to deliver excellent load capacities, low friction, resistance to corrosion and other benefits. Leading equipment manufacturers and their Tier-1 suppliers rely on Polygon’s bearing assemblies to deliver the performance demanded by the construction industry.

Potential Applications

  • Excavators
  • Mini & micro excavators
  • Bulldozers
  • Backhoes
  • Skid steers
  • Wheel loaders
  • Mining equipment
  • Articulating joints
  • Cylinder base and rod ends
  • Cylinder movement pivot points

When to design in Polygon composite bearings

  • Self-lubrication is required
  • Bearing neglect could lead to product liability claims or premature failure
  • Maintenance costs need to be closely monitored
  • Stick-slip conditions exist
  • High load capacities are needed
  • Resistance to chemical, galvanic or fretting-related corrosion is a problem
  • Galling and scoring need to be minimized
  • Electrical insulation is required
