50 Years of Designing and Manufacturing Engineered Plastic Parts for Industrial Equipment

Bearings & Bushings

Bearings or bushings are used to allow constrained rotation or linear motion between two or more parts. Reducing friction in bearings is important for operational efficiency. Reduced friction leads to less wear on parts and permits higher running speeds without overheating or the premature failure of the bearing.

Timco offers many bearing and bushing material options and a broad manufacturing size capability. Our engineers will be happy to review your application conditions and recommend the optimum material for your application.

Popular bearing and bushing materials supplied by Timco include:

  • Cast Nylon 6
    standard, heat stabilized, MoS2 filled, oil-filled, internally lubricated, FDA compliant and premium wear grades available for a broad variety of bearing and bushing applications.
  • Nylon 6/6
    for smaller size bearings and bushings. It is available in natural, black or MoS2 filled grades.
    for lower load requirements and lower cost option.
  • Acetal
    when chemical/water resistance is required.
  • PET
    for higher load requirements and it performs well when paired with aluminum.
  • Phenolic
    for high loads and higher temperature.

Timco also can supply high performance engineering plastics like PEEK for applications in harsh chemical or heat environments.

Benefits of using Timco bearings and bushings

Extend Bearing and Bushing Life

Excellent wear resistance and low coefficient of friction make Timco parts last longer.

Reduce System Maintenance Requirements

Many bearing or bushing material options from Timco are self-lubricating or oil-filled, reducing or eliminating the need for external lubrication. Timco bearings also reduce wear on mating parts leading to additional cost savings.

Improved Efficiency and Safety

Timco’s lightweight bearings and bushings increase operational efficiency and reduce noise and vibration. They are also safely and easily handled.
