CUSTOM BEARINGS

Advanced Industrial can customize your bearing design experience by offering innovative solutions for your specific application. Our unique capabilities will allow you to design a bearing that fits your application, rather than having to design a device around a standard off the shelf bearing. We offer dozens of self-lubricating materials for light, medium and high-performance tribological applications that can run wet or dry and operate maintenance free.

CALCULATE YOUR LIMITING PV

Calculating your Limiting PV is a great starting point when trying to determine which High Performance Plastic Material will work best in your Plain Bearing Application. Limiting PV is a calculation which uses the load on the bearing (pressure) and the shaft RPM (velocity) to give you a limiting PV value. Each of the High Performance Plastics below has it’s own limiting PV Value as calculated by the manufacturer of the material. If you need help using the Limiting PV Calculator or would like to discuss other variables or criteria regarding your specific application, please contact us at 1-800-265-7351 or email Paul at paul@cncplastics.com
