A bearing is a component that supports a rotating shaft in a machine. A polyurethane bearing is a bearing that is fitted with polyurethane, a material with excellent abrasion resistance, impact resistance, and weather resistance.
Bearings are used in a wide range of machinery, from automobiles, aircraft, and generators to home appliances such as refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, and air conditioners. In such machinery, bearings support rotating shafts with wheels, gears, turbines, rotors, and other components attached to them, helping them to rotate smoothly.
Bearings are required to maintain the rotational accuracy of the shaft over a long period. For this reason, the use of polyurethane bearing, which is fitted with polyurethane that has excellent wear resistance and other properties, will not impair rotational accuracy and will maintain performance for a long period.
Urethane is a material with excellent wear resistance, impact resistance, and weather resistance. Polyurethane bearings, in which urethane is attached to bearings that support the rotating shafts of various machines, are used in products that are expected to perform a variety of functions.
For example, they are used in the machine parts that identify banknotes and cards in various financial equipment, where accuracy is required.
They are also suitable for low-vibration and low-noise applications, so they are used in conveyance mechanisms of forklifts, conveyor conveyors, elevator door openers, and guides for conveyance equipment.
Bearings are used not only in factories and other workplaces but also in homes, in pumps, motorcycles, home appliances, automobiles, and other familiar products, as well as in various fields such as semiconductors, industrial machinery, information and telecommunications, and transportation.
Bearings are used in various parts of familiar machinery, and are components known as bearings that support a rotating shaft.
When a machine is operated, it is subject to various rotations and other movements. Bearings are generally inserted and attached to the rotating shaft. At this time, bearings reduce friction in the rotating parts of the machine and enable the shaft to rotate smoothly. Therefore, the use of bearings can prevent the destruction of the shaft.
Bearings are used not only in factories but also in various familiar products, such as home appliances. Bearings are used to rotate shafts smoothly and accurately, and they reduce energy loss and heat generation due to friction in a variety of products.
Urethane, on the other hand, is a material with excellent wear resistance, impact resistance, and weather resistance. Therefore, polyurethane bearings, in which urethane is attached to bearings, are applied to products where such functions are expected.
