Comparison of plain bearing materials: bronze bushings and other alloys

Lars Butenschön | 14. May 2021

Bronze bushings, like many other purely metallic bushings, are based on a so-called alloy. In this process, metallic “mixtures” are created by melting together different types of metal, which in turn have different specifications. A direct comparison of these different alloys with the no less numerous different polymer compounds, which are common in polymer bearings, […]

Polymer ball bearings in plasma technology

Patrick Czaja | 12. May 2021

Within the industry, plasma technology has established itself as a technical standard for optimising material surfaces. Atmospheric pressure plasmas are created, for example, by electrical discharges in the air or by other gases. They enable remarkable material surface treatment due to a large amount of reactive and short-lived chemical species. The species clean, disinfect and […]
