All types of rotating equipment experience friction issues. For some applications, the amount of wear experienced causes subpar performance or, worse, premature failure with standard bushings.
Improve your application with bronze bushings from MMB Bearings. We supply a variety of standard and custom bronze bushings for demanding consumer, commercial, and industrial applications.
Benefits Of Bronze
Bronze bushings are strong and oppose shock, impact, abrasion, and corrosion. As a result, they have a longer lifespan than other materials. Additional advantages of bronze bushings include:
- Resists Corrosion
- Easy To Machine
- Resists Friction
- Simple To Fabricate
- Withstands High Temperatures
- Resists Wear
- Can Be Brazed And Soldered
A well-designed and maintained bronze bushing often outlasts the equipment it supports. Service instructions vary by product and intended use, but the application of an external lubricant like grease or oil further improves the bearing’s lifespan.
Your Bronze Bushings Provider
MMB Bearings is an ISO 9001:2015-certified supplier of high-quality bronze bushings designed to reduce the wear of rotating, contacting part surfaces. We keep an extensive inventory in stock, enabling us to meet client needs on time and within budget
- Straight Bushing
- Flanged Bushing
The majority of our bronze bushings are self lubricating, or oil impregnated. They resist corrosion, wear and impact, making them very strong and reliable. Large pores are filled with lubrication, which gets released during operation under applied force. As a result, oil impregnated bronze bushings don’t need maintenance for operation.
We also offer greaseable bronze bushings. These are not oil-impregnable and require lubrication before use.
Quality Materials For Demanding Processes
The difference between equipment success or failure often comes down to components. Those made of inappropriate materials for an application may hinder assembly functionality.
Manufacturers utilize bronze alloyed with many elements to create bushings with advanced performance attributes. Types of bronze alloys used for bushing manufacturing include:
- Leaded Bronze
- Tin Bronze
- Aluminum Bronze
- Manganese Bronze
Proper alloy selection is needed to achieve a long service life, whether for self-aligning bushings or miniature bushings. The experts at MMB Bearings can help you pick the right one for your application.
