Sliding bearings DS

1. Structure

Acetal with filler on sinter bronze with steel backing.

2. Characteristics

⦁ marginally lubricated and dry bearing material developed for oscillating conditions,

⦁ DS does not cause fretting corrosion damage to the shaft under low amplitude oscillating movements,

⦁ performance similar to DX but with lower friction,

⦁ lubrication indentations are constant dispensers of lubricant.

3. Applications

⦁ industrial: mechanical handling and lifting equipment, machine slides, hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic motors, ski-lifts, pneumatic equipment, medical equipment, textile machinery, agricultural equipment, scientific equipment, etc,

⦁ automotive: steering gear, power steering, pedal bushes, seat slides, king-pin bushes, tailgate pivots, brake caliper bushes, etc.

4. Availability

⦁ to order: cylindrical bushes, thrust washers, strips and non standard parts.

5. Technical data

6. Assembly tips

Assemble with stepped shaft in housings with insertion chamfer. Before assembly moisten housing or bush with oil. Fixture: no additional fixture is necessary after press fitting in, however gluing is permissible in special applications

or with reciprocating motion.
Caution: Do not use any lubricants containing MoS2, graphite or any other solid ingredients (can result with increased wear due to higher friction).

After-machining is permissible.
