The benefits of solid polymer bearings include resistance to dirt and impact. This plastic liner contains a solid lubricant which is displaced from the bearing onto the shaft during movement. The bushing may be fabricated by positioning the steel body concentrically over an elastomeric plug, charging the annular cavity between the body and the plug with a sinterable particulate, expanding the elastomeric plug diametrically to compact the particulate, removing the plug and heating the bearing body and compacted particulate. There are many pros when it comes to choosing metallic self-lubricating bushings , such as their massive strength due to the metal backing and solid lubricants. The advantages conferred by this self-lubricating layer include a low coefficient of friction and high load capacity — up to 36,260 pounds per square inch (psi) compared to the 1,450 psi achievable with sintered bronze bearings. Spyraflo sintered bronze bearing in a special self-clinching steel housing. Those skilled in the art will recognize that the bushing of the present invention provides an advantage over prior art bushings in that operator lubrication of the bushing is necessary much less frequently, in fact, on only an extended periodic basis. It is also known in the prior art to introduce a sinterable particulate material into a bushing’s annular cavity, and compact the particulate material against the inner surface of the bushing in situ by means of a rigid and tubular-shaped compacting punch which enters the space between a center plug and the interior die wall. Click here to learn about GRAPHALLOY self-lubricating bushings mounted in stainless steel pillow blocks. Ideal in a wide variety of applications where self-lubricating properties are required over a long period of time. It is well known to provide all of these prior art bushings with means for lubrication, such as a lubricating fitting so that grease or other lubricants may be periodically introduced to the internal bearing surface. This means that workers don’t need to spend excess time lubricating the actual bearings themselves. 1 and 2, the bushing of the present invention, designated generally as 10, is shown to include a monolithic body 12, a lubricant cavity or reservoir 14, an internal bearing surface 16, one or more internal passageways 18, at least one recess 20 in the bearing surface 16, and a cover 22 mounted to cylindrical body 12 in order to enclose the lubricant cavity 14.

Development of Self Lubricating Sintered Steels for Tribological Applications (PDF) (Thesis). Common applications for bushings include pumps, food applications such as bakery ovens and bottling plants, as well as in mixers, oil pumps, meters, and more. Self-lubrication ensures frictional forces on the bearings and drive system remain consistent, and no added grease or oil is required that can attract contaminants that destroy conventional bearings. Thus, the bushing of the present invention comprises a cylindrical body including an internal cylindrical bearing surface, a cavity or reservoir for storing a liquid or semi-liquid lubricant, at least one passageway extending between the cavity and the bearing surface to permit the flow of lubricant from the cavity to the bearing surface, and finally a cover or casing which is mounted to and over the bushing body to enclose the cavity. One of the important properties of bronze as a bearing material is its ability to conduct heat away from the bearing surface. Because no grease or oil is used, these bushings do not attract dust or foreign matter. GRAPHALLOY bushings eliminate fire hazards; operate intermittently and unattended over long periods; operate where machines must be steam cleaned. A bushing is a type of bearing in the form of a straight or flanged tube for sliding applications. The present invention relates to bushings and, more particularly, to a composite and self-lubricating bushing for use in die sets, presses and other heavy duty machinery. Oilite bearings are manufactured in three standard materials. Clever advertising gimmicks and inaccurate training materials often claim self-lubricating” or lubed for life” capabilities for systems or components that do not fit the definition of the lubrication being an integral element of the bearing material. As Bushings or Seals in water pumps, gasoline pumps, spray pumps, meters, foot bearings, mixers, dye jigs, food and pharmaceutical equipment, bleaching and washing tanks, and rotary filters; even in molten metals. An important distinction to make is that self-lubricating bearings are not bearings that come pre-applied with grease or oil lubricant – these bearings are instead referred to as prelubricated bearings. A wide range of lubricants are available to meet specific requirements within a temperature range of -60°C to 200°C, lubricant additives are also available to impart anti-wear properties in marginal lubrication conditions. AST’s 650 Series of Bushings is suitable for such high-load, low-speed, high-temperature applications such as: iron and steel manufacturing equipment, automotive machinery, injection molding machines, food processing, paper, chemical and textile machinery and other heavy industrial applications. The dry-running nature of these bearings means dirt particles do not stick to the surface, but instead deflect off it. For this reason, optimal performance can be maintained even in extremely dirty environments. In fact, in the particular application of die set use, the optimum bearing layer thickness, for bore lengths of 2-4 inches (lengths normal for die set use) has been found to be between 0.010 to 0.030 inches. This method of compaction is particularly well suited to bushings adapted for the particular application of die set use, to which the preferred embodiment of this invention is directed. 7. The bushing of claim 6 further comprising at least one recess on said bearing layer, said recess being aligned with said one passageway to facilitate distribution of said lubricant on said bearing layer. However, under high velocity and extreme load conditions such lubricants are quickly dissipated; and if the tool operator is not diligent in the proper and periodic application of lubricant, it is possible that a bushing may seize despite all of the foregoing design precautions. The solid lubricants are embedded as microscopic particles in millions of tiny chambers in the fiber-reinforced material. 2, the bushing 10 may also include an externally accessible filling port 26 having a conventional grease fitting 28. Filling port 26 is positioned in direct communication with one of the recesses 20 and through the network of recesses 20 and passageway 18 is in communication with cavity 14. Accordingly, the bushing may be refilled with lubricant simply by application of a conventional grease gun to grease fitting 28. The tool operator will be able to determine when cavity 14 is filled when excess lubricant begins to discharge from orifice 23.
The plastic bearings withstand 30-pound loads, oscillating movements, 10 cycles per minute and ambient temperatures up to 170 F. They are quieter and cheaper than sintered bronze alternatives and suffer minimal wear. GRAPHALLOY bushings reduce maintenance and downtime. Oil impregnated sintered bronze tubing – self lubricating.

The composite bushing of claim 1 further comprising a cavity in said steel body for storing lubricant, at least one passageway through said porous bearing layer and communicating with said cavity to permit the flow of lubricant from said cavity to said bearing layer and the interior of said bushing, and a cover mounted to said steel body to enclose said cavity. From these chambers, the plastic bushings release tiny amounts of solid lubricant during movement. We use only the best materials for our bushings and adhere to strict quality standards. With the combination of heavy load, along with the impact resistance of the steel and low friction factor of the bronze, this material is good for the various working conditions. 3. The plastic bushing should be particularly resistant to wear forces acting on its surface. This makes the bushings particularly suitable for applications requiring extreme temperatures, high pressure or corrosive chemical or water conditions where no lubrication can be introduced. We have since developed a wide range of High Performance Crossflon® materials, each suited to a specific application. A plated bushing would have too thin a layer of bronze to accept anything but the finest of foreign particles and the hardened steel bushing would be even less tolerant. In another application, a swinging hinge assembly used to support PVC swinging strip doors — used for quick loading bay access — has been using maintenance-free, all-plastic plain bearings since 1998 with no problems. 1, porous bearing layer 60 has chamfered edges 70 and 71. These chamfer edges 1 ameliorate any guiding problems which may occur due to an inaccurate alignment of the guide post within the bushing. In accordance with a preferred embodiment of the invention the bushing also includes one or more recesses extending along the internal bearing surface and in communication with the passageway from the lubricant reservoir. However, most of the known prior art applications of such a sintered bronze have involved bearings fabricated from sheet stock. Beldam Crossley provide a range of Crossflon® Bearings and Bushes helping to overcome the problem of poor lubrication, excessive heat and cold, friction, water and corrosion issues found with other bearings and bushes.

We also offer the complete line of plain bronze products, specializing in custom bearings, bar stock, washers, bronze wear plates and special machined parts. Since bearings usually receive a lot of frictional resistance that generates heat, lubricants such as oil or grease are used to prevent the seizing or abnormal wear that this frictional heat could otherwise cause. Traditionally, every lubricated bushing works according to this principle, including a number of maintenance-free bearings equipped with special sliding layers. The aerospace industry requires low friction bearings with excellent wear resistance to help reduce labor costs. Currently, this technology is only available with injection-molded, self-lubricating polymer bearings. Our lubricants contain effective friction and wear reducing elements, as well as corrosion protecting supplements. QD bushings like taperlock bushings allow for use of a single stock pulley for many applications with different shaft sizes. Finely finished radial holes are embedded with a solid lubricant covering up to 30% of the working surface. The Frelon break-in and transfer process of a self-lubricating linear bearing ensures operation at maximum efficiency. This expansion results in a compaction of the particulate material against the internal cylindrical surface of the bushing body. Still another object of the present invention is to provide a method for application of a porous bearing layer onto the internal cylindrical surface of a bushing which achieves a superior bearing layer quality and is cost effective. After removing the elastomeric plug from the bushing 40, the bushing together with its compacted particulate layer is placed in a suitable sintering oven 61 under conditions well known to those of ordinary skill in the art and is heated to a temperature necessary for sintering the particulate into a fused porous bearing layer 60. Preferably, the layer 60 has a thickness of about 0.010 to 0.030 inches.
It offers the property of good self-lubrication, low wear, low friction, good sliding characteristics, low noise. Those skilled in the art will also recognize that the method of the present invention is extremely simple and permits the application of a sintered porous bearing layer to the bushing in a fast and cost-effective manner. Self-lubricating bearings eliminate the need for maintenance , lowering labor costs, and increase the service life of aerospace applications.
