Thrust Washer | Self-lubricating | Choose Your Size!

Thrust Washers with graphite have been developed for high load, low-speed applications and are made of rotational cast high-strength bronze using a specially formed graphite plug as a lubricant.

Our range of oilless washers is available in metric and imperial sizes. Our in-house machining service can produce non-standard sizes to suit specific customer requirements.

Self-lubricated Washer Thrust technology

Our portfolio offers maintenance-free oilless bronze bushings for high loads and long life according to customer drawings and common standards (VDI/BAK, NAAMS).

You can also use our self-lubricating bronze oilless parts configurator.

Thrust washer material is determined by the application. The choice of material is determined by several factors such as speed, load, and temperature. Thrust washers may be produced from plastic, brass, bronze, stainless steel, graphite, or various other materials.

Whatever your application may be, VIIPLUS engineers will assist you in determining the most cost-effective material and production process to fulfill both your and your customer’s needs. Give VIIPLUS a call today so we may solve your customer’s problems.

MAINTENANCE-FREE

Clutch  Hub Thrust Washer Bearing

Although the thrust washer is a small part, it is closely related to the reliability, safety, and comfort of the whole vehicle.

Bearings have an important impact on the performance of the vehicle. In terms of reliability, once damaged, it will affect the driving of the vehicle. In terms of safety, the installation position of some bearings is very important, such as wheel hub bearings, which are to support the weight of the entire vehicle. Once a fault occurs, it will affect the safety of the entire vehicle. In terms of comfort, bearings not only have a great relationship with the smooth operation of the vehicle, but also those bearings with poor quality are prone to produce larger noises.

What is a thrust washer?

Thrust washer bearings are flat bearings that are typically inserted between a rotating component and a stationary component, and function to keep the rotating component in place by providing it with something to rub up against if it begins to move laterally. VIIPLUS thrust washer bearings are made from self-lubricating materials that promote maintenance-free, dry operation for a wide range of applications and axial load requirements. All of our materials are rigorously tested by our professionals. Ensure long service life and high wear rates.

Where are thrust washers used?

They are used in high-wear applications such as axle assemblies, motors, transmissions, pumps, power take-offs, and winches. Just about any application that needs a wear surface.

Precision-engineered thrust washers are used in high-wear applications such as transmissions, power take-offs, pumps, axle assemblies, motors, and winches. Thrust washer kits contain thrust washers of varying thicknesses for correct installation during component assembly. Standard thrust washers are made for products such as automotive engines.

Turbocharger Washer Thrust Bearing

A turbocharger is an important energy-saving product, which can improve engine power, and reduce fuel consumption and pollution. The thrust bearing is a key component to ensure the normal operation and working life of the whole device, which not only requires good physical and mechanical properties but also should give excellent frictional wear characteristics.

The Advantage Of Oilless Thrust Washer

Thrust bearings can work in certain situations that cannot be used, are inconvenient to use, or have no advantage in using rolling bearings, such as particularly high operating speeds, particularly large shock and vibration, limited radial space dimensions or must be split and installed, and need to be in the water. or working in corrosive media.

  • Good fatigue strength
  • Good friction reduction and wear resistance
  • Good corrosion resistance
  • Good friction compatibility
  • Good embedding
  • Higher carrying capacity
  • Good thermal conductivity, manufacturability, and economy

How To Choose Thrust Bearing Material

Thrust washers can be found in almost every appliance, machine, transportation conveyance, power tool, and recreational device that has moving parts, axles, bolts, pins, bearings, and rotating components. In their simplest form, thrust washers are long-wearing flat bearings in the shape of a washer that transmit and resolve axial forces in rotating mechanisms to keep components aligned along a shaft. Thrust washers are an economical alternative to rolling thrust bearings whenever forces velocities are moderate.

The selection of thrust bearing materials should consider the following aspects: load type, load size, journal speed, operating temperature, corrosion conditions, oil supply method, matching thrust plate hardness, contamination conditions, economic performance, etc.
