ecoline drive

Components for automotive applications are exposed to very high loads such as high temperatures or friction and require material characterstics with high robustness and stress resistance. We offer our pre-material for slide bearing applications, hot stamped parts and machined components in various lead-free alloys adapted to a wide variety of processing methods and applications.

We are happy to support you also in the design and production of your slide bearings with individual quantities. With our in-house capabilities, we are the leading manufacturer in various industrial sectors, such as agricultural and construction machinery, general mechanical engineering and other niche applications.

Here you will find detailed information on ecoline drive - please contact us if you have any questions.

All current guidelines for lead-free materials are summarised in the Regulations.
