At Alloy Bearings we are solely focused on white metal bearing technology and are recognised as New Zealand's leading plain bearing specialists. We uphold this position by extending asset life through spare bearing auditing, inspection and reporting, remetalling, machining, manufacturing, replacement and retrofit upgrades of white metal bearings and associated technology.
Being a global minded company means that our expertise are not enjoyed in New Zealand alone. Many contented customers in Australia, Fiji, Samoa, Philippines, and Papua New Guinea are happy to confirm the quality that they have come to expect from us.
Whether you need bearing remetalling services in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Whangarei, Invercargill, or anywhere in between, we provide a complete service which includes arranging all freight to and from your site.
"We would like to formally acknowledge and thank AB Alloys for their prompt and diligent attention to our recent urgent requirement to remetal and machine most of the bearings from one of our STAL turbines. The cooperation with our principal contact and yourselves was always productive, timely and professional.
There were some challenging complexities with these bearings and we were impressed by the diligence applied by AB Alloys in identifying quite a number of issues that needed resolution. In those cases AB Alloys provided sound recommendations that facilitated good decisions to be made. The quality of workmanship on the completed bearings and the documentation accompanying them was also noted as being very good.
Accordingly please accept this as a formal thank you for your attention to our requirements, especially as the urgency of the requirement was of course entirely not of your making!”

White metal bearings have considerable benefits. Under normal operating conditions they have a very long life, they allow large momentary overloads, are able to handle lubricant problems and if misalignment occurs they are able to conform and compensate.
White metal bearing failure is seldom sudden or catastrophic. Typically the result is an increase in running clearances that can be easily detected by vibration analysis or an increase in noise. This means that damage to expensive rotating equipment is avoided or minimised.
Refurbishment can then be carried out with the bearing remetalling providing considerable advantages in cost and time without sacrificing performance. Do you have a technical question about plain bearings? Contact us
