Plain Sleeve Bearings and Bushings
We can provide you with the leading ball bearing information
Plain Sleeve Bearings are economical alternatives to ball bearings in situations where ultra-low friction is not a major requirement. Plain bearings are available in two materials – Cast Bronze (SAE 660) & Powdered Metal/Oilite (SAE 841). These bushings are also available in three physical configurations: Sleeve, Flanged, and Thrust.
Bushings have a PV rating that can be used to determing which material is best suited for your applicaiton. You can go with Cast Bronze for general purpose applications. For High load applications with low speeds, you can go woth Powdered Metal. If you need much higher load capacity our new TU line might be a good fit. The TU bearings are bronze coated and have a PTFE coated inside diameter for additional lubrication. In addition to the items listed on our e-commerce website, we can also custom make a bushing for your application. Our flanged and graphite filled bearings are not listed below but we can also support those requirements as well.
