Vibration is a Leading Cause of Metal Bearing Failure
Bearing vibration is one of the primary causes of failure in metal bearings.
Where metal bearings slip and corrode from extreme vibration, plastics composites reduce friction levels to tolerate even significant shaft misalignment. Composites never need greasing and eliminate concerns of metal-to-metal/bearing-to-bore contact for longer wear and service life. And they reduce noise levels to promote quiet operation.
When you need a heavy-duty bearing for high-vibration environments, look to plastic composites.
