The operation of fitting bushes, or linings, into holes or places where wear is to be received, or friction diminished, as pivot holes, etc.
A simple suspension bearing that accommodates limited rotary motion, typically made of two coaxial steel tubes bonded to a sleeve of rubber between them. The compliance of the bushing in different directions has a great effect on ride harshness and handling.
Any removable metal lining, generally a thin metal ring surrounding a part to provide either a bearing surface or a tighter fit than direct machining could achieve.
A sleeve or a lining for a bearing or a drill jig to guard against wear.
An insulator attached to a piece of electrical equipment, such as a capacitor or transformer. The capacitor keeps an energized conductor insulated from the equipment.
An insulator found on electrical equipment where the wires attach to the equipment. Transformers and capacitors have bushings.
a sleeve that is used as a bearing on suspension forks, suspension swing arms, pedals, and derailleur jockey wheels.
(1) in machinery, a removable liner fixed in a bore to improve the bearing surface; (2) in chain, a renewable liner fixed in the barrel of a link, or center link, to provide an improved bearing surface; (3) in chain, a hollow cylinder used to space the sidebars and provide a bearing surface for the chain pin, and on which the rollers may or may not be mounted.
an insulating liner in an opening through which conductors pass
a cylindrical metal lining used to reduce friction
a cylindrical sleeve made of a slippery material that spins directly on the spindle
a hollow cylinder used as a renewable liner for a bearing or a drill jig
a smooth sleeve that gives the axle a low friction surface to spin in
an insulated fitting for carrying a conductor through a metal enclosure of electrical equipment such as transformers or capacitors.
A plastic or metal piece used to reduce friction and play between moving parts.
Removable cylindrical lining for an opening used to limit the size of an opening, to resist abrasion, or serve as a guide for another object.
a cylindrical plastic lining for a redline wheel used to resist abrasion or friction. Bushing wheels were used on redlines from 1968-1971.
A close fitting support device used to restrict flow between two liquids, thermally isolate a hot liquid, support the rotating shaft, break down pressure etc. Commonly made of carbon or Teflon.
A material that acts as a buffer between metal and metal or metal and wood to avoid abrasion. There are many types of bushings used in the piano: plate bushing, key bushing, flange bushings, and teflon bushings.
(as contrasted with "bearing") Mechanically, almost identical to a bearing. The difference is that a bushing forms a continuous circle. Therefore, bushings are drawn in and out of continuous bores in a block, rather than being retained by a cap.
The lining of an inside surface to reduce friction.
A aoft metal like lead, babitt, or aluminum used to line the arbor holes of some grinding wheels. Also a removable ring, usually steel, used to adapt a grinding wheel to a smaller spindle.
A protective liner that provides a cushion between moving metal parts.
This term refers to a mechanical device used for mounting a sprocket or gear on a shaft. Several types of bushings exist including straight bronze sleeves and the split-tapered style, of which there are several (e.g. - B-Loc, Taper-Lock®, Q.D.®).
A metal, and sometimes nylon, "donut" that supports a rotating shaft (like an axle). Most metal bushings are made out of something like Bronze Oilite, a metal that is permanently lubricated.
A sleeve, metallic or nonmetallic, usually removable or replaceable, which is placed in a body to resist wear, erosion, etc.
a usually removable cylindrical lining for an opening used to limit the size of the opening, resist abrasion, or serve as a guide.
A brass ‘bearing' into which an arbor pivot fits and rotates.
A liner, usually removable, for a bearing; an anti-friction liner used in place of a bearing.
A bushing is an electrical engineering component that insulates a high voltage conductor passing through a metal enclosure. Bushings appear on switchgear, transformers, circuit breakers and other high voltage equipment.
