Global Bearing Technologies supplied its first bearing into the Italian market in 1975 and since then GBT has broadened its product range to all different fields of industries and applications. During the 1980’s the company started to focus more deeply on the automotive application, putting a remarkable level of effort into performance and product quality and as a result in these years GBT succesfully developed its business in a growing automotive industry and market.
In 1985 GBT established a wear test laboratory in their in Italy based plant, which has since been used to various types of testing related to the many applications concerning the automotive industries, with a world-class research and development facility. Over the past decade our Research and Development team has taken ungoing efforts to enhance the wear test laboratory, and getting equipped with the latest design-modeling & simulation software, benchmarking equipment.
In GBT we are continuously working on the tribological aspects to improve the frictional control technology, which will directly result into less wear and higher life span for sliding bearings.
Our technical and sales team are in constant contact with our customers to respond quickly to any query raised by any of our clients from around the world.
Various GBT products that are incorporated into automobiles applications have functionality and performance characteristics that control friction and reduce energy loss. These are environmentally friendly as per ROHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances), compliance products that contribute to reduced energy and resource requirements.
Thanks to our team effort GBT products have become a well known brand in the global automotive industry. Naturally GBT supplies a wide range of sliding bearings in terms of material, sizes and shapes and into numerous applications concerning the automotive sector. Through its cutting edge technology GBT is contributing to a healthy global environment, whilst adding an extra edge to vehicle safety and comfort.

Add extra mile by using GBT sliding bearings
In GBT we are doing continuous research to design a material which can sustain the demanding conditions of the automotive industries and applications, therefore GBT sliding bearings are designed in a way which contains the following properties:
- High load carrying capacity
- Low coefficient of friction
- Our target to keep values of static and kinetic coefficient of friction as near to each other as possible
- A degree of self alignment to avoid edge loading
- Low maintenance i.e. lubrication free
- Sealed bearing surface to prevent ingress of dirt
- Corrosion resistance
- Long life
- Ability to withstand wide range of temperatures
- Easily changeable parts in case of wear
