Plain Bearings: Simple Design for Sophisticated Applications
Digitisation and automation are increasing rapidly in the agricultural sector. Robotization is only one part of the developments. In the field of mechanical engineering, there are also far-reaching improvements in automation through the increased use of intelligent and data-driven technology.
Bearings are a fundamental component in most types of industrial equipment, enabling low-friction motion for operations such as positioning, transporting, and guiding loads. They rely on sliding contact between softer bearing materials such as plastic, composite or bronze, and a relatively harder guide material, such as aluminum or steel.
Plain bearings have a simple construction, making them easy to install, maintain, and replace when necessary. In general, plain bearings offer higher speeds and loads within shorter stroke applications. They also perform well in different orientations ( vertical/horizontal ) and offer excellent resistance to harsher environmental conditions.
