Bushings, (sometimes called plain bearings, plain bushings, or sleeve bearings) reduce friction between two surfaces sliding against each other.
Bushings are akin to thin tubes most commonly used for machinery with rotating or sliding shafts to improve efficiency and reduce vibration and noise. Bushings can be used for drilling operations in drill jigs, hydraulic external gear pumps and motors. Other common types of bushings are bushings for cars, trucks & SUVs.
The difference between bearings vs. bushings is that a bushing is a type of bearing. While the term bearing is a general term for something that allows motion between two components, bushings are specific pieces of equipment. Bushings, unlike rolling-element bearings, are designed as a single part.
