What is a Self-Lubricating Bearing?

A self-lubricating bearing, also known as maintenance-free or greaseless bearings, is a bronze, iron or metal component with impregnated lubricant oil. As a self-lubricating bearings manufacturer, we impregnate the bearing with liquid lubricant specific to your unique application or operating temperatures. This allows the bearing to provide their own lubrication during operation without requiring the application of grease or oil lubricant.

Self-lubricating bearings can be used with a rotational, axial sliding and oscillatory motion. It is recommended for applications with intermittent operations or boundary lubrication. Self-lubricating bearings are used in a variety of industries including aerospace.
