LM76 Releases Self Lubricating Bearings
Self lubricating, sintered bronze and power metal alloy plain bearings from LM76 feature: high precision, high load capacity, high speed, high temperature, very low coefficient of friction, and low noise. Available in inch sizes (0.250 in. to 2.500 in. ID x 2.000 in. long) and metric sizes (2 mm to 100 mm ID x 120 mm long) these bearings are suitable for washing machines, exercise equipment, portable machine tools, toys, motors and automotive equipment such as alternators.
Because of the very low coefficient of friction these bearings show no wear after many thousands of hours of use. Standard inch and metric cylindrical and flanged oil impregnated bearings are typically shipped from stock, Custom bearings (ID, OD, flange size, and length) can be ordered as well as special purpose alloys. Alloys include: sintered bronze, iron sintered bronze, Paralite (non-migrating lubricant), and Triboloy (chromium, nickel, cobalt alloy for temperatures over 1000 degrees F). Triboloy sintered bearings are resistant to corrosion, erosion, abrasion, and galling, and even at high temperatures they are resistant to oxidation.
LM76 also manufacturers a variety of FDA & USDA compliant bearings and shafting, in inch sizes of .25 inches to 1.5 inches, and a FDA & USDA compliant profile rail and slide system that can easily be integrated into new and existing applications. The bearing options include: Self-lubricating FDA & USDA compliant Teflon composite bearings in a 304 stainless steel shell, and lower cost bearings with a ceramic coated shell and FDA & USDA compliant liner. Bearings are available in closed and open configurations, and are drop-in replacements for all inch sized linear ball bearings.
