Plain bushesPlain bearings

Plain bushes are supplied in various types including wrap bushes, sintered bronze bushes and flanged bushes.  Adaptable and cost effective, big savings and improvements can be made to many applications with the selection of the optimum low friction material and carrier.


Spherical Plain Bearing

Spherical Plain Bearings are self-aligning plain bearings that have inner and outer rings with spherical sliding surfaces, and can take a large radial load and a uni-directional axial load at the same time.  There are many types of Spherical Plain Bearings, but they are basically divided into steel-on-steel types and maintenance-free types with various sliding surfaces which do not need re-lubrication in operation.


Rod End Bearings

Rod End Bearings are Spherical Plain Bearings mounted in housings for use on the end of hydraulic/pneumatic cylinders and linear actuators.  Two types are available, one has an internal/external thread or a welding peg for mounting as opposed to heavy duty “hydraulic” rod ends which are horizontally split and have two or four attachment bolt holes in the base as standard.
