Powdered metal bearings (SAE 841) are used in applications that call for completely wear-resistant components. Self-lubricating powdered metal bronze bushings are made by blending powders, shaping the mixture into the required sizes, and heating it in oven to bond the particles. The next step in the process is to size the bronze bushing; this involves placing the material back into the dye and press it into the finished shape. The next step in the process is to oil-impregnate the metal bronze bushing for lubrication or corrosive resistance. This creates a fantastic cost efficient bearing. Operation temperatures range from 10* F to 220*F. Shipped in plastic bag to preserve the oil. We offer many sizes in this section, in inch dimensions sleeved and sleeved with flanges. Metric bronze bushings are also available upon request.
Rainbow Precision stocks a sizable array of bronze bushings, also known as bronze bush, powdered metal sleeves or flanged type sleeves, and continuous cast solid bronze bars and cord stock in SAE-660. Bronze bushings are used in a variety of applications and industries, such as exercise equipment, suspension parts, machinery, wheel and caster bearings, agricultural equipment, and shaft repair.
