Tufcot® Flanged Bearings

Tufcot® flanged bearings are often used in applications when there is a requirement for the bearing to accept an axial load as well as the normal radial loads.

If the axial load is relatively small, the bearings can easily be machined in one piece from a suitable standard tube.

When high axial loads have to be sustained or very large flange face dimensions are required and it’s not possible or desirable to use a separate thrust washer.

The versatility of Tufcot materials makes it possible to fabricate the component, using a plain bearing machine from a suitable standard tube and the flange face made from the sheet material, we can then bond the two components together.

This process allows us to produce the desired bearing design and also obtain the maximum mechanical properties of the Tufcot material.

With our comprehensive machining facilities special features can be easily incorporated in the flange faces, such as:

  • Mounting Holes or Slots
  • Lubrication Grooves
  • Special Location Features
  • Custom Shape of Flange
