For a good distribution of the solid lubricant between the sliding element and the sliding partner, a small sliding gap is needed. This happens once by abrasion and by swelling from the depots in the micrometer range. As a result, pairing with clearance "0" is not possible using our bronze lubricants with solid lubricant, which would inevitably result in jamming.

Bronze bushings with for example type SOB, narrows in the bore after insertion of the tolerance range F7 to a tolerance range H7. Prerequisites for this are:
From the experience of the most diverse use cases, the following tolerance fields should be used when against run partner preferred:

Plates, angle strips u. on. Elements of bronze m. FSS

According to the case of application and the desired accuracy, between 0.02 and 0.15 mm. In general, guide slides are made to give a clearance of 0.05 mm and a vertical clearance of 0.1 mm.

Sliding Partners

Suitable sliding partners for Sankyo Oilless Bushes and Plates are gas nitrated or hardened steel alloys with HRC > 35. In order to ensure an optimal sliding beahaviour, the difference in hardeness between the sliding material and sliding partner should at least be 100 HB. The surface roughness of the sliding partner should be Rz = 3...6,3 ┬Ám (grinding). If guides, like in large dies of punching tools, are continuously moved apart during operation, the counterpart partner should be provided with correspondingly generous centering chamfers.
