On the move for more than 80 years - that is the secret of our success. Established as a foundry in 1926, Main-Metall has become a developer, producer and supplier of a wide range of high-quality plain bearings and guiding elements for the mechanical engineering and plant manufacturing industries.
Tribology, the science of friction, lubrication and wear, is our profession and calling. Internally developed products and manufacturing processes based on research and technical know-how have made Main-Metall an eagerly sought after business partner in the global market. Our diversified product range for the manufacture of plain bearings, bearing materials and non-ferrous castings is unrivalled. Expert advice, customised business solutions and unique design, complement our comprehensive service package.
