Provides self-lubricating thrust surfaces, especially in applications where assembly does not lend itself to the use of a flanged bearing. Alternatively, they can provide a second thrust surface at the non-flanged end of a bearing.
In thrust applications, PV should not exceed 0.36N/mm² x m/s. Surface velocity (m/s) is calculated on the mean diameter of the thrust face and pressure (N/mm²) on the total thrust area.
We also offer an in-house machining service for non-standard sizes for specific customer requirements.
A thrust washer is a flat, disc-shaped bearing that is placed between a rotating component and a stationary component in a rotary assembly. Designed to control axial motion, thrust washers keep components aligned along a shaft by providing them with a surface to run up against. They also help prolong the life of these components by protecting them from excess wear during use. For certain applications, grooved raceways can be integrated into the washer’s design to facilitate the movement of axial forces in one direction.
Available in a range of thicknesses, sizes, and styles, cast bronze thrust washers are used in a wide variety of high-wear applications. Some examples include:
Automotive systems. Cast bronze thrust washers are heat-tolerant and corrosion-resistant, making them ideal for use in transmissions, axle assemblies, motors, and other automotive systems requiring a smooth and low-maintenance operation. Oil and gas equipment. With their exceptional wear resistance, cast bronze thrust washers are well-suited for supporting and protecting components in oil drilling equipment. Marine and defense equipment. The high strength and corrosion resistance of cast bronze thrust washers allow them to provide reliable performance in marine and defense equipment used in harsh and unpredictable environments. Industrial machinery. Cast bronze thrust washers exhibit the wear resistance and load-bearing properties to handle the specific demands of various industrial machinery, including automation equipment, mechanical and hydraulic presses, hauling and lifting devices, and more.
Casting Bronze Thrust Washer (with Grooves / with Bolt Holes)
Machined casting bronze bearings offer technically and economically favorable bearings solutions. It is with high load capability, low weight, ht and good corrosion resistance. Viiplus can offer different types of bronze alloys according to the required lifetime, service…etc. The tolerance is much tighter than wraped bronze bushes.
● High load capability, low weight and good corrosion resistance.
● The tolerance is much tighter than wrapped bronze bushes.
● All kinds of oil grooves can be choosed,lubricating by oil filled in the oil grooves.
● Cylindrical bushing, flanged bushing, thrust washer and slide plate are standard fabrication.
● Special designs can be made according to your design.
Benefits Of Washers
A washer is a disk-shaped plate with a hole used to distribute loads from a threaded fastener, such as a screw or nut. Other uses include being spacers, springs, wear pads, load indicators, locking devices, or vibration reducers.
Large diameter washers for industrial equipment or heavy machinery have the same qualities as standard-size washers but on a much bigger scale. They are used to construct many types of heavy equipment.
