About Project

FacFox takes CNC machining to the next level with our high-precision crafting of graphite-plugged bronze flange bushings. These innovative components are designed to excel in demanding environments, offering a unique combination of durability, self-lubrication, and heat management.

At the heart of this bushing lies a robust bronze base, machined using our state-of-the-art CNC equipment. Embedded within this base are solid graphite plugs. These plugs provide exceptional self-lubricating properties, eliminating the need for external oil or grease. This is particularly advantageous for applications where traditional lubrication methods are impractical or undesirable.

The surface of the bushing is distinguished by a pattern of evenly distributed round holes. These strategically placed holes offer several key benefits:

• Reduced Friction: As the bearing slides along a shaft or guide rail, the holes act as small reservoirs, allowing for a thin film of lubricant (graphite) to form, minimizing friction and wear.

• Enhanced Heat Dissipation: The holes also play a crucial role in dissipating heat generated during operation. This helps to maintain optimal operating temperatures, extending the life of the bushing and surrounding components.

The integrated flange at the base of the bushing serves two important functions:

• Simplified Mounting: The flange provides a wider contact area, simplifying the mounting process and ensuring a secure connection within your machine assembly.

• Increased Stability: The flange design enhances the overall stability of the bushing, particularly under heavy loads or challenging operating conditions.

Solution

  • Step 1: Bronze Stock Selection. A solid bronze bar stock of the desired size and alloy was chosen based on the application’s specific requirements.
  • Step 2: CNC Machining. The chosen bronze stock was then loaded onto a CNC machine. Using precise computer-controlled instructions, the machine meticulously machined the bushing’s outer geometry, including its overall shape, flange, and any necessary features.
  • Step 3: Hole Drilling. Following the initial machining, the CNC program guided the machine in drilling a precise pattern of round holes into the bronze base of the bushing.
  • Step 4: Graphite Plug Preparation. Solid graphite plugs were prepared according to the size and shape required for the specific bushing design.
  • Step 5: Graphite Plug Insertion. The prepared graphite plugs were then carefully inserted into the corresponding holes drilled into the bronze base.
  • Step 6: Quality Control. The completed bushing underwent a rigorous quality control inspection to ensure all dimensional tolerances and surface finishes met the specified requirements.
  • Step 7: Cleaning and Packaging. Finally, the finished graphite plugged bronze flange bushing was thoroughly cleaned and packaged for safe transport and delivery to the customer.
