The marine industry is one of the most critical in the world, linking continents in trade, enabling commercial fishing and creating a wonderful place for recreation. The marine industry however is facing an ongoing increase in regulation and scrutiny on emissions, discharge and lubrications. Marine insurers are demanding high standards and increased maintenance. Applications that have been normally lubricated via grease or oil are being redesigned to accommodate environmentally acceptable lubricants. These changes are creating increased challenges in creating and sourcing acceptable products and compatibility with existing designs.

Kormax brings the best options with a range of bearing solutions to perform in a wide variety of conditions and applications. These include Composites, Naval Bronze, Brass and Polymers. We have solutions for water lubricated bearings to replace rubber lined bearings, high load steering components and wear pads in transmission systems. We work with mariners to select the best solution for every application that will comply with standards, perform well and achieve business goals.

Get Started


As a continuous improvement organisation listening never stops. Through after-sales support and listening to feedback we learn, we resolve and we support our customers. We add to our knowledge base and prove new ways to offer customers the best.



A production plan is prepared ensuring production capacity and quality control are maintained to standard. The Supply chain system is set up to ensure all delivery requirements are achieved. Manufacturing commences and delivery satisfaction is measured.



The create stage involves conceptual design then detailed design. At conceptual design our application engineers open their minds to a wide range of creative solutions. Through brainstorming and internal consultation we model and analyze a number of ingenuitive options. Options are presented and through rationalization we assist in selecting the best design strategy. Detailed design & modelling is then performed to ensure the product is production ready.



The best solutions come only when the problem is comprehensively understood. At Kormax we begin with a confidential 360° review to fully understand everything. This broad analysis dives deep into the application objectives, physical factors, chemical exposure, manufacturing process, serviceability, operating maintenance, risk assessment, legal requirements, certification, competitive threats and budgetary targets.
