For heavy loads and shock loading conditions, bimetal bearings have anti-corrosion capabilities and are easy to install, making them ideal for emergency replacements.
Hard and strong, bronze bearings have long lifespans and resist shock, impact, wear and corrosion (and require an external lubricant at installation and during operation to reduce friction and wear).
Used when high speed operation is required and in limited-space and variable-load applications, sintered bearings feature large pores that can be filled with lubrication (which is then released under applied force). Oil-impregnated sintered bearings offer maintenance-free operations and are suitable for complex shapes.
For harsh operating conditions and high specific loads with oscillating and low frequency motion, steel bushings have high load capacity and very good resistance to fatigue at high temperatures.
