Rebabbitting White Metal Bearings And Stern Tubes

For 70+ years Goltens 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. Learn more.


Every year Goltens stations around the globe recondition thousands of bearings with the most exacting tolerances.

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

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.
