Bearings

Extending the service life of a bearing accounts for the factors that cause wear.  This infographic breaks down these items into five categories with suggestions for improving overall life and performance. Download your copy by clicking on the image for a printable PDF.   ...

Shock Absorber Bushings The physical construction of shock absorber bushings include a hardened steel back and PTFE on the inner lining. Bushings used in shock absorbers are specifically designed for linear applications. Shock absorber bushings help to cushion movement and vibration found in the vehicle...

What is the difference between seat bushings and seat bushes? Seat bushes and bushings refer to the same component. Many European companies use the term “bushes” while “bushings” is the preferred term in the US. Why are seat bushings important? Seat bushes help to raise and lower headrests...

The physical construction of torque converter bushings include low carbon steel, bronze intermediate layer and a sliding surface with PTFE and additives Torque converter bushings are optimized for friction and wear resistance in rotational and linear motion Bushings found in torque converters play a...

The physical construction of belt tensioner bushings include low carbon steel metal backed layer with a PTFE self-lubricating attached composite Belt tensioner bushings either have the PTFE sintered to the bushing or a bonded PTFE tape liner Due to the high-temperature working environment, a...

Seat bushings are found in reclining functions, suspension systems, seat mechanisms, armrests and seat headrests. OEMs look for bushings that have PTFE lining, a dry solid lubricant, to enable fluid motion and prevent noise. Cylindrical and flanged bushings are mainly used in seat bushing...

The accessory belt tensioner powers a car’s air conditioning, water pump, alternator and power steering by maintaining tautness of the engine serpentine belt. A tensioner is available as one of three designs:

Planetary gears require immense power to move heavy equipment while operating within a compact design. Full complement cylindrical roller bearings need only a small amount of radial space and provide high load capacity.
