Surface pressure

The three most common misconceptions about polymer plain bearings

Lars Butenschön | 14. October 2020

Plastics have become an integral part of everyday life and have established themselves in all areas of industry over the past few decades. Most people are now aware that there is no such thing as “the plastic”, just as there is no such thing as “the metal”. In the search for ever lighter and more […]

Surface pressure and compressive strength – simply explained

Lars Butenschön | 10. June 2020

One encounters these specifications not only in the plain bearing sector, but also in other fields of mechanical engineering. From the maximum compressive strength to the maximum recommended surface pressure. They are often tested according to standards in technical papers and documentation and advertised as “extremely high” in marketing trades. Sometimes the surface pressure seems […]

Calculate surface pressure for plain bearings – this is how it works!

Lars Butenschön | 4. June 2020

One of the most important parameters for determining the correct plain bearing is the surface pressure that occurs in the respective application. Without them, one can actually only roughly estimate (sounds more technical than “guessing”) whether the plain bearing in question is suitable. As a matter of course, literature and the technical documentation of the […]
