Plane Polymer Bearings and Bushings

Choice of the correct bearing material is dependent on wear, friction requirements, load bearing capacity, temperature, pressure and running velocity. We recommend that a range of material is tested as the performance limits given are based on ideal operating conditions as each factor is independently tested. Unknown parameters or operating conditions could limit the validity of these performance limits. Specific material compatibility should be checked on each application.

Advanced EMC Technologies manufactures three standard types of plain polymer bearings:

We are proud to introduce our family of plane polymer bearings and polymer bushings. The use of engineering polymers in dynamic load bearing applications has helped revolutionize virtually all mechanical products. New product designs are continually pushing the limits of engineered plastic materials. Advanced EMC Technologies is evaluating and researching new advanced polymers on a continued basis to meet the advances in product design, which include higher load bearings, lower friction bearings and high temperature bearings. We provide quick-turn prototypes, low volume machined to high volume injection molded components in most bearing grade materials such as PEEK bearings, PEEK bushings, PTFE bearings, including Rulon equivalents, nylon bushings, PPS bearings and many more.
