Kugler Bimetal | Join the Metals

Kugler BIMETAL has constructed a powerful know-how in tribology with more than 60 years in the field of anti-friction.

The Bimetal solutions combine a bronze coating on a steel substrate, attending to higher tribological and mechanical performance, purely functional design and outstanding power density.

Since 1950 Kugler BIMETAL SA has manufactured, exclusively, parts in steel/Kugler-TOKAT bronze, intended to solve problems of friction. These parts have been developed to meet the most demanding applications where extreme operating conditions are encountered: severe mechanical stresses, high speeds, high accuracy and high temperatures. Such parts, machined to very precise tolerances, are found in the following areas of application: aeronautics, defence, transport, all kinds of machinery, hydraulics, etc.

Based in Geneva, the company has expertise in:
✔️ Axial Piston Pump – Barrel
✔️ Guide Bearing L
✔️ Radial Bearing

We are glad to have them in our network since 2017.
