Here you will find a variety of high quality plain bearings and bushes. Next to the rolling bearing, the plain bearing is the most frequently used bearing type in mechanical and plant engineering. Plain bearings are suitable for rotary, swivel and linear movements. In the plain bearing, the two parts moving relative to each other are in direct contact. They slide on each other against the resistance caused by sliding friction. This resistance can be kept low by various means. These include selecting low-friction material pairings and lubricating or creating a lubricating film that separates the two contact surfaces. Unlike plain bearings, bushings can support radial and axial loads in one direction. For example, plain bearing bushings are cylindrical components used for mechanical decoupling to reduce friction between moving parts. Sintered bushings, plain bearing bushings as well as spherical plain bearings and flange bearings are available in the Krones.shop, for example.
