This section provides overview, applications, and principles of plain bearings. Also, please take a look at the list of 16 plain bearing manufacturers and their company rankings.
A sliding bearing is a bearing that directly supports the rotation of a shaft or the linear motion of moving parts by the sliding surfaces of the bearing.
Since the rotating shaft or moving parts are in direct contact with the sliding surfaces of the plain bearing, the frictional force is large and frictional heat is generated. For this reason, the contact surfaces are lubricated with oil, metal impregnated with lubricant on the bearing sliding surfaces, or resin material with high lubricating properties.
Sliding bearings that do not use lubricants are called dry bearings. Sliding bearings are inexpensive, easy to use, and flexible in terms of material and size, and they are used in different ways depending on the application and operating environment.
Sliding bearings have the following characteristics:
