The automotive industry has accepted PM technology, with the result that over 70% of its production worldwide is aimed at the automobile manufacturing sector. There is tremendous scope for PM to penetrate further, considering the wide variety of vehicles such as cars, buses, trucks, vans and three-wheeled vehicles, as well as two-wheeled vehicles such as scooters, motorcycles and bicycles. A lubricant is a device introduced between two components that slide relative to each other. The task of the lubricant is to prevent the two components from coming into contact and therefore abrading each other. Dry steel rubbing on dry steel will tend to “pick up.” This means that material from one component will be deposited on the other component, and vice versa. It does not take long before both surfaces become rough and unusable.

A. GRAPHALLOY is a solid, uniform combination of graphite and metal. Molten metal is impregnated into a graphite substrate under high temperature and pressure. Used as a bushing or wear surface, GRAPHALLOY survives dusty atmospheres, high temperature, submersion and corrosive environments. Self-lubricating, self-contained fluid-film thrust and journal bearings systems are such a product. They offer design simplicity, and used in place of external bearing lubrication skids, provide fewer parts, lower initial and long-term costs. Since they operate as soon as shaft rotation begins, they need no involved starting sequence. In addition, power outages do not affect bearing lubrication during coastdown. An external lubrication system needs to be started before the related machine, and requires a backup power source, battery driven pump, or gravity tank to offer lubrication during an emergency shutdown. Therefore, use of the self-lubricating self-contained system means a reduction in machine skid size, weight, complexity, and maintenance.
In low speed, high load applications, LUBRON AQ solid lubricants have a typical coefficient of friction between 0.02 to 0.10, depending on a variety of factors affecting performance. Type of environment, bearing load, velocity, temperature, finish and hardness of the mating surface all influence coefficient of friction. LUBRON AQ bearings provide proven performance for demanding underwater applications. LUBRON AQ’s bronze alloy and solid lubricant construction offers the optimum choice for toughness, rigidity, and low coefficient of friction, dry or immersed. Cast bronze alloys have been used for centuries in a broad spectrum of bearing applications. Other bearing materials have been unable to match their versatility. By alloying copper with other elements, the properties of bronze can be altered to suit the requirements of most any application. The choice of a bronze alloy for a particular application is determined by the desired physical, mechanical and metallurgical properties needed. For applications exposed to flowing water, corrosion resistance becomes a critical consideration. Corrosion associated with high water turbulence includes cavitations, erosion, and impingement attack.

TU line of steel-backed, PTFE-lined, self-lubricating bearings available in both inch and metric sizes. Self-lubricated bronze bearings are bearings that are manufactured with some form of pre lubrication feature, engineered to provide continuous lubrication throughout the life of the bearing. This pre lubrication eliminates the need for any further additional lubrication. Bronze bearings that are self-lubricated can come in many different forms. This article will outline some of the more popular methods of self-lubrication used in bronze based bearing products.

A schematic of a journal bearing under a hydrodynamic lubrication state showing how the journal centerline shifts from the bearing centerline. In a piano, various wooden parts of the keyboard and action are linked together by center pins typically made of German silver.
Proper alloy selection is necessary to attain maximum resistance to wear and corrosion. Ideally, the bearing and its mating surface are always separated by the LUBRON AQ lubricant film. Over a long period of time, however, extreme wear of the lubricant may result in mating surface contact. Under these circumstances, the selection of the bearing alloy becomes particularly important. Table 1 is intended to aid the engineer in selecting a suitable alloy for the specific application under consideration. Metal skeleton, according to the needs of gear pump bearing users, bronze, cast iron, cast steel, stainless steel, non-metallic skeleton can be used bakelite, phenolic plastic, nylon and so on. A self-lubricating bearing is a component that does not require any additional external lubrication. Even when operating in areas of high moisture, fluid/debris contamination, and elevated temperatures.

Lubrication is initially associated with grease or oil, but its presence does not necessarily mean dirty fingers when handling slide bearings. Lubrication actually only means reducing friction and wear between elements or friction partners that move relative to one another.
After polymerization is substantially complete (i.e. after the article has cured) the article may be post-cured to increase cross-link density. As is known, additional cross-linking may be accomplished by post-curing polymers at an elevated temperature. The temperature may be ramped up gradually to a desired elevated temperature and held for a sufficient time to permit full cure. With respect to curing, a relatively slower cure is typically preferred. Cure time may be increased, for example, by decreasing the amount of initiator or accelerator, or increasing the amount of oxygen in the material, for example, by decreasing the vacuum under which mixing is performed. Because oxygen in the air acts as a strong inhibitor to the reaction, curing preferably occurs in an inert atmosphere, such as in a nitrogen atmosphere or in an enclosed mold.
Motion system designers are increasingly outfitting round and profile rails with self-lubricating bearings that can significantly, reduce cost of ownership, improve performance and deliver virtually maintenance-free operation.
