We offer the best product range of Bronze and Sputter Bearings, IROX Polymer Coated Bearings and aluminum bearing.
Bronze and Sputter Bearings Manufacturers can achieve reduced engine friction by using smaller-sized bearings precisely adjusted to each other in terms of material and design. These bearings must withstand conditions of high stress, reduced oil film thickness and increased oil temperatures. High quality standards apply to all production and processes. In bearing production, Federal-Mogul combines integrated manufacturing techniques and quality systems with internally-made machinery and tools, yielding cost-efficient and flexible processes. This guarantees the highest possible production quality. Main and rod bearings must fulfill the following requirements: High stress-wear-corrosion-resistance Excellent compatibility with the sliding partner Good emergency-run properties Good embedding properties of foreign particles in the oil
IROX® Polymer Coated Bearings IROX Bearings on Production Line prev IROX Bearings on Production Line Single bearing next The innovative IROX® bearing coating improves fuel consumption and lowers CO2 emissions by reducing friction and wear in hybrid and startstop engine designs, as well as enabling the downsizing of high output engines through increased bearing strength and reliability. It is estimated that IROX can increase the life of the bearing shells by more than five times in extreme engine applications. Features and benefits include: Improved wear-resistance, better sliding properties and increased fatigue strength over conventional bimetal bearings Polymer resin binder with anti-wear and solid lubricant additions to address intermittent lubrication situations Works well with nodular cast iron and forged steel crankshafts, therefore accommodating cost efficient or high performance engine architecture Polymer coating for enhanced load bearing and boundary lubrication conditions Greater wettability increases rate at which hydrodynamic film builds when engine starts – superior performance in stop-start applications Up to 90% lower wear than conventional bare Aluminum bearings Up to 30% lower coefficient of friction than bare Aluminum bearings Up to 25% higher load carrying capability than Aluminum bearings
Bearing shells produced in steel and lined with aluminumtin or aluminumtinsilicon have extremely effective anti-friction properties combined with high wear strength and exceptional resistance to corrosion. The fairly soft tin provides good conformability of the bearing to the crankshaft and is an excellent surface for embedment of dirt particles occurring as wear debris and primary dirt in the engine oil. Silicon, as an alloying element in aluminum bearings, is necessary when using cast iron crankshafts, especially “soft” shafts. The silicon smoothes the crankshaft surface to overcome any folded and smeared metal that might be covering up carbon inclusions. Besides being a standard material for main bearings, steelaluminum is also used for connecting rod bearings. Its use is restricted by the limited specific load-carrying capacity of this group of materials, but new advancements in bearing alloys provide remarkable fatigue strength allowing the use of AlSnSi alloys in nearly all gasoline-engine applications. Mass balance systems, axial guides for crankshafts and other, very diverse applications also use aluminum bearings in the form of shells, thrust washers or bushings. All new Federal-Mogul Powertrain aluminum bearing alloys are now free from lead, cadmium and other environmentally harmful substances.
