Plain Bearings offer reduced friction in oscillating and slowly rotating applications - without the need for rolling elements such as balls or rollers. Instead, either the lubrication characteristics of the materials themselves, or additional specialised sliding materials, minimise friction between the moving surfaces inside the bearing. Unlike rolling bearings, the load on a Plain Bearing is distributed over a large contact area resulting in low specific load and good sliding properties - making them the ideal solution for high load – slow speed applications.
Features & Benefits of Plain Bearings Include:
Large load carrying surface area
High load carrying capacity
We can supply Plain Bearings from SKF, INA, Fluro, IKO, HMEC & LS.
