Rebabbitting White Metal Bearings And Stern Tubes

For 80 years TIG marine has been a leader in centrifugal casting of white metal bearings for bearing reconditioning and rebabbitting of bearings for Marine, Stationary Power and Industrial applications.

Every year TIG marine stations around the globe recondition hundreds of bearings and stern tubes with the most exacting tolerances.

TIG marine was a pioneer in the field developing proprietary centrifugal casting machinery to meet the highest tolerances and quickly repair and recondition bearings.

Centrifugal casting, where the bearing is spun while the babbitt material is poured, is a significantly better process with much improved results versus a poured cast bearing. The spinning results in increased pressure and ensures that babbitt is free of impurities, gases and imperfections. This ability to repair large-diameter stern tubes, crankshaft and other journal bearings with precision and speed is something our customers have to come to rely on.

We specialize in saving our customers time and money by reconditioning worn and damaged bearings with the quickest possible turnaround times. Our focus is always minimizing the downtime of your equipment and helping avoid the acquisition costs of new replacement bearings.

After casting, every bearing is machined to the maker’s specifications and shipped back in a like-new condition.
