Plain Bearing Bush Technology to Reduce Costs

We offers the whole range of metal, polymer and resin bushes. Bushings, also sometimes named sleeve bearings, have low friction coefficient. They can be used dry or greased. They are used in rotative movements with heavy loads. The choice of the bushing depends on speed, temperature and load.

  • When applicable, our bushes are produced according to ISO 3547.
  • See our catalogue for more details.
  • We also provide lead-free bushings.

Metal Polymer Bearing: Designed To Greatly Reduce The Transmission Of Noise And Vibration. High Quality. High Performance.
In industry, quality, sustainability and cost-effectiveness are all important factors in choosing bushing bearings products. Before identifying the value & price of the bushing bearings product, we generally need to describe its performance & characteristics, in accordance with legal norms, form a detailed document, the user will have quality to follow when buying. Let’s follow this thought path and explore the story behind Bronzelube.com self-lubricating plain bearing bush material products.

Bearings – High Performance, POM Bushing Or Other Composite Bushing

They can be plain polymer ( such as POM) or layered with mesh of PTFE and a structure with epoxy resin and glass fiber. Put a variety of different engineering composite bushings bearings together to do performance comparison, to find the one suitable for plain bushing bearing, this process is not easy. The first thing to look at is the composition of the composite bearing material. In this step you may be confused by countless materials with strange names. They have many fancy names and claim to be versions of “Teflon”, “POM”, “PTFE”, “3 layer”, “Sliding Material” “Oilless Bushing Material”and “Dry Bearing Material”. Not surprisingly, most self-lubricating bearings are specific mixtures made from the same small molecules that come together and have special chemical names. Typical polymers that can be used as bearings are PTFE, POM, some materials with high temperature resistance or other characteristics such as PEEK, PTFE Fabric…

So how exactly do we compare? There are many useful tools, such as data sheets on the famous network, sample books on self-lubricating bearing materials and, of course, books on the subject of self-lubricating sliding bearing materials. But the key question is, how do you know which one to use?

Cylindrical Wrapped Bushing, POM≠POM Composite Bushing, The Right Bushing Material for Your Project!

The bushing has 3 layers : a steel or bronze strip to improve mechanical resistance – a porous sintered bronze layer for heat conductivity, dimensional stability and the bonding of the sliding layer – a PTFE based sliding layer with good auto lubricant quality (low wear and low friction).
The polymer bushing has a composite structure : a steel layer – a porous sintered bronze layer – an alveolate acetal surface. POM usually refers to is not pure POM, pure POM can not meet the requirements of bearing life. In order to visualize this, we tested all composite bearing materials on a standardized test platform, and of course, the same tests were carried out on a variety of competing products. Test parameters include but are not limited to: load, speed, load type and motion type to detect wear of samples.

For plain bearings, the physical property table usually lacks parameters directly related to the suitability of plain bushing bearing materials, such as wear resistance, which is a key consideration for bushing bearing life.

Wear resistance depends on a number of factors, of which the coefficient of friction is one, but the magnitude of the coefficient of friction itself depends on a number of different environmental factors. Most importantly, the physical properties of most plastic polymers are pretty much the same on the inside and the outside, so it’s hard to see any differences in key properties (such as density, thermal expansion, and flow resistance during injection molding) between composites with the same base material.
The use of additives, such as reinforced fiber, PTFE fabric, PEEK and so on, has a very small impact on the value in the physical property table, but it may greatly affect the wear and sliding performance of bearings. Even if the composition of the mixture is very small, it may also have a significant change on the service life of bearings.
In our material development projects, even a small portion of the pigment used to change the color of the material may determine the success or failure of bearing durability. Therefore, the physical property table has a certain role, but it is far from enough for us to evaluate the performance of bearings.

How do you know, what kind of bushing material with better performance?

  1. General-purpose steel-based self-lubricating bearings without oil feed without oil lubrication or less oil lubrication, can be in use without or less maintenance.
  2. Good wear resistance, small friction coefficient, long service life.
  3. Has the right amount of elastic-plastic, can distribute the stress in the wider contact surface, improve the bearing capacity.
  4. The static and dynamic friction coefficient is close, so as to ensure the working accuracy of the machine.
  5. Can make the machinery reduce vibration, reduce noise, prevent pollution, improve working conditions.
  6. The transfer film can be formed during the operation to protect the grinding shaft.
  7. For grinding shaft hardness requirements are low, thus reducing the processing difficulty of related parts.
  8. Thin wall structure, lightweight, can reduce the mechanical volume.
  9. Steel back can electroplate a variety of metals, can be used in the corrosive medium; At present, it has been widely used in sliding parts of various machines.

This is a question that people often ask us: “How long will this material last?” In order to answer this fundamental question, in addition to providing written data, we decided to take a more practical approach — life calculation, which is backed by a huge amount of real data obtained from actual wear testing.
To this end, we have built a professional test platform to allow a variety of materials to run for a long time in real conditions, such as any type of load, speed and different applications. At the same time, we also overlaid other more important parameters, including different bearing materials, material outer structure materials, environmental influences such as heat, extreme cold, dust, or chemicals. These can be highly close to the working condition data of bearings in practical application, so as to achieve the most realistic data.

“Why plain bushing bearing service life and reliability usually more important than the bushing price?”

If several plain bearings can meet the speed & load requirements you need, then the next thing to do is to compare prices. You’ll be surprised how much the price varies. Usually, bearings cost only a few cents each, but if the demand is high, the cost can increase rapidly. Especially in some long-term projects, where thousands or even millions of bearings are needed, you may want to use low-cost materials rather than expensive alternatives.
However, please never compare prices alone, because the cost of bearing failure is usually much higher in terms of long-term costs. When purchasing decisions are made, they want to keep the purchase price low, and end users will do the same. The cost of each bearing is not only the direct cost of the purchase price, which may be surprising, “How long will the bearing material last”, “Can’t I just use a base metal polymer bearing?” These problems are difficult to judge only by the level of the purchase price.

Plain Bearing Life Time,  Cost-effective, Excellent price!

Knowing how long a bushing bearing will work is priceless

The cost of using bearings depends on the machinery and is sometimes enormous: during the intense harvest season, which lasts only a few days, the cotton harvester in the field breaks down; Or, in perfect climbing weather and on the track, the $2000 mountain bike starts rattling…
For these applications that bring high use costs due to bushing bearing damage, it is very valuable to know in advance how long the plain bearing can last, and it is also an important factor to bring long-term use to your equipment and reduce the comprehensive cost.
Replacing old bushing bearings and installing new one plain bushes is a painful business. You need to shut down all the equipment, the repairman takes out the bearings, and you need to unload everything around the plain bearings just to replace a mechanical part the size of a fingernail, which means a savings of only 20 cents on a $60,000 machine.
