ZEDEX® DIN AND STANDARD PARTS

ZEDEX® SOLUTIONS

The products offered are intended to support customers with DIN and standard parts. The technical data of the machine element offered are based on the results of tests carried out in real conditions and have not only been calculated on a theoretical level.

 

This was possible thanks to the targeted choice of the dimensions of the machine elements that were tested on our test benches. The results obtained were then adapted to the other dimensions offered.

FOIL BEARINGS

Foil bearings are slotted bushings that are made from sheet strips by cold forming. This type of plain bearing bush is particularly suitable when large diameters are required, for which a sufficiently large semi-finished product is not available.

Custom-made dimensions are also possible. Do not hesitate to send us your request.

 

When are foil bearings suitable?

  • with large diameters
  • if you want to save costs
  • with high temperature fluctuations
  • if a low operating bearing clearance is required
  • if the bearing should be replaced quickly and without cumbersome tools

When are foil bearings not suitable?

  • if no axial fixation is available and it cannot subsequently be done into the housing
  • if a rotary movement between housing and bearing is not permitted

Stave bearing as alternative

If a wall thickness > 6mm and/or a width > 140mm are required, we recommend the usage of a stave bearing.

Plain bearing bushes made of ZEDEX® materials

Standard version

Standard plain bearing bushes are manufactured with the highest precision and made of all ZEDEX® engineering & high-performance polymers. There are currently over 2000 dimensions in the range from 2mm up to 250mm inner diameter.

Depending on the requirements, 4 bearing clearance classes (coarse, standard, fine and negative) can be selected.

Find out the available standard dimensions in our delivery programme.

Take advantage of the consulting of our application technology. On request we design the bearing for you in a plastic-compatible manner and provide you with a load bearing capacity and service lifespan calculation.

Special dimensions version

If the dimensions of the bearing you are looking for do not correspond to the any standard, we can manufacture it – whether shorter or longer, smaller or larger – according to your specifications.

Plain bearing bushes with special dimensions are manufactured with the highest precision and available made from all ZEDEX engineering & high-performance polymers according to your requirements. They are availabe as a prototype, in small series or in volume production.

Do not hesitate to send us your request.

Otherwise, take advantage of the consulting of our application technology department. On request, we design the bearing for you in a plastic-compatible manner and provide you with a calculation of the load bearing capacity and the service lifespan.

Special version

You need a special plain bearing bush in a special design

  • as a spherical bearing
  • as a slotted bearing
  • as a composite plastic/metal bearing
  • as a hydrodynamic bearing

with special dimensions

  • very big or small
  • highest precision
  • negative bearing clearance and low friction

with special properties

  • low friction
  • high wear resistance
  • anti-adhesive
  • low outgassing
  • physiological harmlessness
  • medical approvals

for harsh environments and extreme operating conditions

  • cryogenic temperatures
  • high temperatures
  • strong impacts and vibrations
  • high edge pressureaggressive chemicals
  • high surface pressure
  • dirt and abrasive particles

with integrated functions

  • sealing lips

or simply according to your wishes.

Do not hesitate to send us your request.

Otherwise, take advantage of the consulting of our application technology department. We will offer you a technically and economically sensible solution for your requirements.

All the bushings are offered in four different bearing clearance classes.

* Basically, the usage of a mounting hole with a quality different from ISO 5 is possible (e.g. H4 or H6). In these cases, after having pressed-fit the bush, only the upper deviation of in the chart given “ISO tolerance of the inner bore after pressing-fit at 20°C” changes, namely it changes of the value of the difference between the ISO tolerances of the mounting hole used and the one recommended (H5).

Stave bearings

Stave bearings are bushings made of “staves” or segments, which we manufacture by mechanical processing from plastic sheet strips or by injection moulding. They can operate with or without segment connectors.

This type of plain bearing bush is particularly suitable when large diameters are required, for which a sufficiently large semi-finished product is not available.

Find out the available standard dimensions in our delivery programme.

Custom-made dimensions are also possible. Do not hesitate to send us your request.

Stave bearing with segment connectors

The noblest version of the stave bearing is the one with segment connectors. Usually the “staves” or segments are made of ZX-100K and the special safe segment connectors are made of ZX-410.

When the lifespan of the stave bearing is reached, the connectors ensure that the bushing is still properly supported within the maximum allowable clearance.

At this point you can carry out a rapid maintenance of the stave bearing, with less effort. The worn segments can simply be replaced with new ones, without disassembling the shaft.

Do not hestitate to send us your request.

Stave bearing without segment connectors

The version of the stave bearing without segment connectors is obviously the price effective one, but at the same time the more laborious version during both the assembly and replacement phase, after having reached the end of its service lifespan.

However, once mounted, the bearing guarantees the same performance as the one with connectors. It is recommended to keep the wear controlled with regular maintenance checks.

Do not hesitate to send us your request.

Injection-moulded stave bearing

For applications where the size of the segment allows it and at the same time several units are required, it is advisable to analyse the possibility of injection moulding the stave bearing segments.
