Linear Bushing
A linear bushing is a type of bearing used to reduce friction and wear between moving machine parts, such as the rotating shaft and the housing in which it rotates. It provides a smooth and low-friction surface that allows the shaft to move freely without causing damage to the surrounding material.

Features and benefits:
  • Friction reduction
  • Shock absorption
  • Noise reduction

Q: When should bushings be used instead of other types of bearings?

Bushings are suitable for applications where low to moderate rotational speeds are involved, and the load capacity requirements are not extremely high. They are often used in cases where noise reduction, vibration dampening, and simplicity of design are critical.

Q: Do bushings require lubrication?

Some bushings require external lubrication to reduce friction and prevent excessive wear, especially in metal bushings. However, certain materials, such as self-lubricating plastics or bushings with incorporated lubricants, eliminate the need for additional lubrication.

Q: What are the common materials used for bushings?

Common materials for bushings include bronze, brass, steel, aluminum, and various polymers like nylon and polyurethane. The choice of material depends on factors such as load, speed, and environmental conditions.
