|Bearing sleeves, sometimes called bushings, are a part used to facilitate linear movement between two parts. A bearing sleeve is basically a hollow metal cylinder with open ends and solid sides. It can be made of all metal or a special fiber-reinforced composite depending on what it is being used for. Bearing sleeves are meant to reduce vibrations and potential noise by helping to absorb friction between two moving parts through the use of a sliding motion. Bearing sleeves are known for their lower costs and light maintenance requirements. They are ideal for reducing noise at low speeds and are easy to install. Sleeve bearings are also able to support higher loads while resisting shock because of a larger contact zone. |
SkyGeek carries a variety of bearing sleeves to choose from to make it easy to find the right sleeve for your project. Our high-quality sleeves are made by well-known manufacturers and are constructed from quality materials to enhance the performance of the parts. They are carefully made and inspected prior to shipping to ensure perfect performance. Our low-friction bearings have thin walls to reduce housing dimensions and to reduce the amount of weight added to a system.
Bearing sleeves can be made out of any type of metal, but are typically made from bronze, steel or stainless steel.
