Graphite Metallizing Corporation, the manufacturer of self-lubricating Graphalloy bushing materials, announces virtual engineering meetings for customers who need bearing/bushing solutions in tough pumps, conveyors, ovens, and other extreme applications.

During the past year, Eric Ford, vice president of sales and marketing for Graphalloy, has been promoting virtual meetings with global sales representatives unable to visit customers in-person due to COVID-19 restrictions.

“We are conducting multiple meetings per week now, all over the world,” says Ford. “This solution allows us to present a graphic overview of the Graphalloy product line, including successful applications, while our engineers answer any of the customer’s technical questions regarding design considerations.”

Graphalloy Bushings offer solutions in places where traditional bearing lubricants will not work, including high temperature applications, clean environments, submerged operation applications, and more.

“These virtual meetings benefit our customers by allowing various members of our support team to participate, while the customer can invite multiple members of their team, from various locations, to attend at the same time. It’s much more dynamic and detailed than simply sending emails back and forth,” adds Ford.
