each made from our engineering & high-performance polymers of the ZEDEX® families

Special dimensions version:

  • with dimensions according to your specifications
  • from individual parts to volume production
  • Inner diameter from 2 mm up to 250 mm

Special version:

  • in combination with metal up to a shaft diameter of 1600 mm
  • as a turbine bearing for hydrodynamic lubrication
  • as a foil bearing
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 available as inner diameter.

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

Take advantage of the free consulting of our application technology. 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.

  • 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
  • toothing

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

* Basically, the usage of a mounting hole with a quality different from 5 is possible (e.g. H6 or H7). In these cases, after having pressed-fit the bush, only the upper deviation of the inner bore of the bushes increases, namely of the difference of the ISO tolerances.
