Calenberg Bearings

Ciparall® Sliding Bearing

Calenberg Ciparall® Sliding Bearings combine sliding and deformation properties of the bearing where the sliding action is independent from the deformation. Horizontal displacements of the structural members are transmitted by relative movements (sliding) whilst angular rotations and stress relief are taken up by permanently elastic pads.

Transverse tensile forces, flatness imperfections of surfaces and creep deformations are not transmitted to the sliding layer; the dimensionally stable sliding plane remains level and parallel whilst the sliding properties are maintained. This is a precondition for the functionality and operational safety.
