Sintered bronze and sintered iron Sliding bearings - ISO 2795 / DIN 1850 part 3

FU-1 sintered bronze

The FU-1 sliding bearings made from sintered bronze powder are pressed to shape and sintered under a high pressure and temperature. The oil is simultaneously dispensed into the tiny pores on the metal.

The FU-1 sliding bearings can be used in dry conditions for applications with medium speeds and low loads over a long period of time without requiring any maintenance. Sintered bronze sliding bearings are economical options, and are available in an almost unlimited variety of dimensions. They are popular in electrical and electronic machinery, chemical engineering machinery, cars and office equipment.

FU-2 sintered iron

The FU-2 sintered iron sliding bearings protect the shafts by means of the embedded oil. At low loads, these bearings have the same sliding and frictional properties as the sintered bronze sliding bearings. . The absorbed oil in the sintered iron sliding bearings helps prevent seize-ups.

These bearings are commonly used in textile machinery, power tools and shock absorbers for cars and motor bikes. They can also be used statically as guide bushings or retaining bushings.

FU-3

The FU-3 sintered bronze steel sliding bushings have the same benefits as the FU-1 and FU-2 bearings.

The proportions of iron and bronze can be configured by the client according to different requirements.
