Plain bearing techniques in harmony with

Plain bearing technology

The Dr.-Ing. Folz Gleitlagertechnik GmbH is specialized in the development, production and distribution of highly wear-resistant and maintenance-free/low-maintenance plain bearings and spherical plain bearings as well as further drive elements like axles and housings.

For more than 30 years, we have been researching and developing in the field of sliding tribology of metallic friction partners under highly dissipative environments. The resulting products of the protected family of brands ZFO-P, MAINFREE and ZFO-Cu are manufactured with high vertical integration at our site in the industrial area Püttlingen-Etzenhofen.

For the development and design of special plain bearings which are subjected to high tribological stress by forces, heat, cold or because of specific media effects, we are your partner of choice due to our long-term experience.

We see ourselves as a technology company where all plain bearing elements - bearings, axles, housings - are developed, produced and sold by us.

Due to modern manufacturing with robot interfacing and highly qualified employees, we are always able to meet the high requirements of our renowned business partners.
