RWG is one of the world's leading airframe-bearing manufacturers for the international aerospace industry. They offer standard and custom rolling element, self-lubricating, and metal-to-metal bearings. They are a renowned and ever growing manufacturer of flight mill bearings with the highest precision and quality. Their capabilities include needle rollers, roller element spherical bearings, custom double row bearings and unique configurations or special allots for custom designs.
The secret to their success in addition to high quality and innovation is their strong customer focus.
Key RWG Products
Their standard range includes bearings in four main categories: Bushings, spherical plain bearings, roller bearings and rod ends.
Metal to metal bearings and rod ends
RWG FRASLIP self-lubricating bearing materials are based on specially engineered liner fabrics. This design provides high load ratings, uniform wear, low friction and extended service life.
RWG has three basic formulations that cover most applications:
Self-lubricating liner system that consists of synthetic fibers used for high static loads and low speeds.
Tight woven fabric of multifilament synthetic fibers, coated (saturated) with a unique formula of PTFE, resin and special filers.
Outstanding compatibility with bare titanium
Qualified to SAE AS 81820, EN2755, ABS2045 plus customer approvals
Temperature range from -67 F to 325 F and can handle 392 F for a short duration.
Helicopter liner system that consists of special PTFE based factory and super finished ceramic mating surface. FRASLIP EF fulfills the performance requirements of SAE AS81819 and was developed for high speed oscillating applications.
Temperature range of -67 F to 325 F
Self-lubricating bearing system of factory high strength with non-fluid absorbing fibers. FRASLIP T is suitable for high temperate and/or high-speed applications at medium loads.
Temperature range of -65 F t0 600 F and can handle 675 F for a short duration
RWG self-lubricating liner systems can be found in numerous applications, most commonly found in:
Flight Control Systems
Passenger and cargo doors
Deep Space Applications

Metal-to-Metal bearings and rod ends
Metal to metal bearings are traditionally used for high load applications and / or severe environmental conditions such as high or low temperatures. They have different types of construction and various coatings, platings and lubricants are available to ensure the best performance under almost any conditions.
Different types of construction and various coatings, platings and lubricants are available to ensure the best performance under almost any conditions.
High load ratings
High tolerance to impact loads
Numerous material possibilities
Very high load rating
When lowest friction, highest accuracy and higher speeds are required, rolling element bearings are the first choice. RWG offers a wide range of designs from small deep groove bearings to large high load spherical roller bearings. They offer special platings, materials and lubricants for a wide range of applications.
This type of product offers very low rotational friction and continuous operation possibilities.
Various designs of roller bearings
Deep Groove ball bearings
Angular Contact Bearings
Self-aligning ball bearings
Spherical roller bearings
Hybrid bearings with temperature ranges up to 650 F
