Bushes (Flexible Bearings)
We offer a wide range of bushes for a variety of applications. Bushes can be used to accommodate loads, reduce shock, correct misalignment and manage vibration across many industrial situations.
The fully bonded bush consists of rubber bonded between two concentric steel sleeves. The bush is designed to accommodate small torsion, conical and axial movements and endure radial loads.
Duplex bushes are similar to standard bushes, but are reinforced with an intermediate tube. This bush configuration provides high radial load bearing whilst retaining low axial and torsional stiffness rates.
Inner sleeve bushes consist of rubber bonded to the inner sleeve and are designed to accommodate small torsion, conical and axial movements and endure radial loads.
A semi-bonded bush consists of rubber sandwiched between two concentric steel sleeves. The rubber is bonded to the inner sleeve and interference fitted to the outer sleeve. The semi-bonded bush is designed to accommodate small torsion, conical and axial movements and endure radial loads.
We offer a variety of non-standard bushes, designed to customer specification. If required we can use customer metal work to produce the finished part.
These bushes consist of a contoured inner and outer metal forming a ball-joint, articulated by a thin annulus of rubber. They are designed to accommodate high radial and axial loads and allow conical and torsional displacement and misalignments.
