Top Features and Qualities of Sintered Bronze Bearings

Sintered bronze bearings perform an essential role in many applications. The friction dissolving components self-lubricate, they require little maintenance, and they’re economically priced. Now, we’ve already described the lubricant impregnation process in some detail. Furthermore, we’ve talked about powder metallurgy, the science that makes this partnership possible. Proceeding further on this track, we’re about to […]

Different Signs of Sintering Failures

In place of superfluous text, we’re digging straight into the indicators that signal a sintering failure. There are different symptoms, signs that crop us with different cues, and it’s our job to clearly identify each one. Where do we start? Well, a deeper look at metal porosity seems logical. After all, that spongy metal structure […]

Advantages of Powder Metallurgy over Conventional Metal Fabrication Techniques

Prepare for a battle. The headliners at the event enter. Conventional metal fabrication techniques come out first, and powder metallurgy technology is close behind. Okay, this is a colourful metaphor, but it accurately reflects the contest we’re attempting to illustrate. Specifically, several advantages come quickly to mind when powder metallurgy is put up against those […]

What is Powdered Metal Fabrication?

As we’ve said time and again, the sintered bearings sector represents an important part of the powdered metal fabrication industry. After all, this is an engineering principle that produces self-lubricating bearings. Imbued with that beneficial feature, a bearing functions without a separate oil feed mechanism. None the less, this technology doesn’t limit itself to this […]

The Principle of Self-Lubricating Bearings

There’s no great mystery behind self-lubricating bearings, no magic greasing the sintered parts. It’s all science, a form of engineering that employs lubricant transference tech. Try Picturing the principle as a transfer-driven process. At the beginning, that oily liquid is contained in the sintered bearing material. Just how does the oily stuff reach that required […]
