FIELDS OF APPLICATION
Typical automotive applications include GRAPHITE BUSHINGS for wide range of linear motions, which include but not limited as windshield wipers, window mechanisms, seat adjusters, sun-roofs and fan motors. They can also be used in a variety of smaller electric motors and household actuators, in the consumer goods industry or in general mechanical engineering applications.
CYLINDRICAL GRAPHITE BUSHINGS
This most cost-effective form of bearing is primarily pushed into a pre-processed bearing bore using a mandrel.
FLANGE GRAPHITE BUSHINGS
Differ from cylindrical bearings with their flange on one side. This serves as a restraint during installation, and in certain cases, also serves as a larger support when placed under axial loads. This form of bearing also needs to be pushed in using a mandrel.
SPHERICAL GRAPHITE BUSHINGS
Guarantees autonomous re-alignment of the bearing bore. The bore diameter remains unchanged when installing the spherical bearing. However, the installation is somewhat more complicated.
SPHERICAL GRAPHITE BUSHINGS WITH RING
The main purpose of the extension is to compensate for any in-between spaces.
