Most people think of bearings as being made of bronze or other metal alloys, but they can wear better and weigh less when they are manufactured from thermoset composite materials. “What you’re talking about here are engineering material solutions to customer problems,” Spaulding Composites Inc. CEO Jack Lyons explains.
Spaulding Composites was founded in 1873 and became a recognized leader in the manufacture and application of thermoset composites by the 1950s. “The durability and mechanical properties that you get out of the combination of the resins and reinforcing materials provide much better physical characteristics than either material does by itself,” Lyons continues.
Components manufactured by Spaulding Composites are used in aerospace, cryogenics, heavy equipment, power generation, energy exploration and a variety of industrial applications.
