The particles 11 preferably contain 0.02 mass% or more and 0.10 mass% or less of C. The Cu-based sintered bearing 1 preferably has a porosity of 8% or more and 25% or less. When the bearing 10 described in the first embodiment is produced, first, a mold for shaping the bearing (shaping die) 30 is prepared (refer to FIG. Dimensional change during sintering of a green compact consisting of Cu-Ni alloy powder, Sn powder, Cu-P alloy powder, and graphite powder by containing a predetermined amount in Cu-Ni alloy powder, one of the raw material powders Can be stabilized. 3. A sintered bearing as claimed in claim 1 wherein the copper-base alloy contains a proportion of tin between 5% and 15% by weight. However, generally speaking, using low wettable shafts must be one of the effective means to improve the lubrication condition and reduce the friction of oil-impregnated sintered bearings, though PTFE transfer film coating, which we used as low wettable coating in this study, is not wear-resistant and not a proper material for practical uses. It was confirmed that the area ratios of the Cu phase significantly differed in the upper side and the lower side during the shaping in the inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 4. The past literature has showed that the oil-poor condition increases the friction of sintered bearings 15 More frequent solid-solid contact could occur for a less amount of oil condition in the sliding area, and thus was naturally one of the reasons for larger friction of the noncoated shaft. In addition to ordinary oil-impregnated sintered bearings (oilless bearings), we also offer bearings with special features including dry bearing suitable for high temperature condition, corrosion-resistant bearing etc. These tapered surfaces are formed as clearance portions for allowing relative oscillatory displacement (run-out motion) between the shaft and the oil-impregnated sintered bearing, and their inclination angle is normally set between 10 and 45 degrees. The cross-sectional shape of the bearing hole 4 in a surface orthogonal to the shaft line in the longitudinal direction of the rotating shaft 2 forms a circular shape, and, in an inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 4, a first region 4A forming a central portion along the shaft line , a second region 4B forming a first end portion 4A1 of the first region 4A through a first opening 4E1 of the bearing hole 4, and a third region 4C forming a second end portion 4A2 of the first region 4A through a second opening 4E2 of the bearing hole 4 are set. Manufactured by compressing metal powder under high pressure, the sintered bearings have a porous structure that can be impregnated with lubricants.

The cross-sectional shape of the bearing hole 6 in a surface orthogonal to the shaft line in the longitudinal direction of the rotating shaft 2 forms a circular shape, and, in an inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 6, a first region 6A forming a central portion along the shaft line , a second region 6B forming a first end portion 6A1 of the first region 6A through a first opening 6E1 of the bearing hole 6, and a third region 6C forming a second end portion 6A2 of the first region 6A through a second opening 6E2 of the bearing hole 6 are set. The object of the present invention is to provide a bearing which is cheaper to produce than the known bearings referred to above. In the core rod sliding step, the core rod 34 may be slidden vertically once or a plurality of times. At this time, when the shear load is extremely large or the stiffness of the rotating shaft is not high enough, the rotating shaft bends due to the shear load and rotates with the shaft line inclined inside the bearing, and there is a possibility that a state in which the surface of the rotating shaft does not properly come into contact with the friction surface inside the bearing (a motion of the rotating shaft hollowing the inner surface of the bearing) may be caused.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION In order to solve the above problems, the present invention relates to an electrically conductive sintered bearing which is made of sintered metal and has internal pores impregnated with electrically conducting oil, and an inner periphery of the electrically conductive sintered bearing. Whether a sintered bearing is metal, ceramic, or polymer-based, Krytox performance lubricants retain their viscosity and lubricating properties in high-temperature, high-pressure environments, while consistently outperforming hydrocarbon-based lubricants. This lifelong lubrication makes sintered bearings a versatile alternative to costly roller bearings. Spyraflo robust light weight aluminium housing with self aligning bronze bearings. Small Parts & Bearings products are not authorised for sale into the USA or Canada due to the reluctance of Australian insurers to provide product liability insurance into those two countries. This is attributed to a phenomenon in which the amount of the Cu powder being attached to the surface of the core rod is likely to increase as the amount of the powder mixture dropping along the surface of the core rod increases. A preferred ratio of the area occupied by the Cu phase relative to the area of the inner circumferential surface S in the central portion 3AS of the first region 3A in the oil-impregnated sintered bearing 10 of the first embodiment shown in FIG. The Cu-based sintered bearing according to claim 1, wherein the porosity is 10% or more and 25% or less. In the above-described bearing 20 of the second embodiment as well, in the inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 4, the area ratio of the Cu phase in a central portion 4B S along the shaft line of the enlarged diameter portion 4b formed in the second region 4B is set to 80% or more and 100% or less of the area ratio of the Cu phase in a central portion 4CS along the shaft line of the enlarged diameter portion 4c formed in the third region 4C. The area ratio of the Cu phase in the central portion 4BS along the shaft line of the enlarged diameter portion 4b formed in the second region 4B is preferably 90% or more and preferably 100% or less of the area ratio of the Cu phase in the central portion 4CS along the shaft line of the enlarged diameter portion 4c formed in the third region 4C, but is not limited thereto. Provided is a Cu-based sintered bearing comprising: 15-36 mass% of Ni; 3-13 mass% of Sn; 0.05-0.55 mass% of P; and 0.02-4 mass% C in total, the balance aluminium bronze bushing consisting of Cu and inevitable impurities, wherein the content of C forming an alloy with a matrix within Cu-Ni main-phase grains is 0.02-0.10 mass%. Sintered bearings are used whenever particularly low noise levels are required, loads are variable or little space is available. A production method for an oil-impregnated sintered bearing that is another aspect of the present invention has the following configuration. The samples 8 to 10 were formed by loading a powder mixture in which the mixing ratio was set to Fe-20 wt % Cu-2 wt % Sn into a cavity, sliding a core rod vertically in the cavity along the vertical direction, pressing upper and lower punches fitted into the cavity, and sintering the powder mixture. As a result, wear of the oil-impregnated sintered bearing and generation of unusual noise due to stress concentration can be suppressed, making it possible to use the oil-impregnated sintered bearing for a long period of time in a stable manner. The low wettable surface drags the oil droplets firmer than the high wettable surface, which generates the secure oil circulation in the bearing clearance for the PTFE-coated shaft. The lower punch 33 is fitted into the die 31 of the mold 30, and the core rod 34 is lowered up to the bottom of the cavity P. Next, as shown in FIG. In the bearing 20 of the present embodiment, in the inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 4, the area ratio of the Cu phase in the central portion 4BS of the enlarged diameter portion 4b is set to 80% or more and 100% or less of the central portion 4CS of the enlarged diameter portion 4c. Therefore, a state in which the area ratio of the Cu phase does not significantly change throughout the entire region from the enlarged diameter portion 4b through the enlarged diameter portion 4c across the straight hole portion 4a and the area ratio of the Cu phase does not significantly change is caused.

The particles 11 that are Cu—Ni main phase grains are made of Cu—Ni alloy grains containing Sn, P, and C, and a plurality of particles 11 are sintered to constitute a base of the Cu-based sintered member 10. Sintering is static when a metal powder under certain external conditions may exhibit coalescence, and yet reverts to its normal behavior when such conditions are removed.

We produce sintered bearings with the highest degree of precision and the narrowest of tolerances so that smooth and quiet running are ensured. Self-lubricating bearings work by having lubricant impregnated within the sliding layer of the bearing. The powder compact (if a ceramic) can be created by slip casting , injection moulding , and cold isostatic pressing After pre-sintering, the final green compact can be machined to its final shape before being sintered. There is also a good range of Rollers – Solid – Shaft Mount – Black Neoprene on the Small Parts and Bearings website. Sure, an older generation bronze bushing may emit a squeal of protest when a shaft starts to rotate, but these advanced-design bronze bearings handle infrequent usage patterns quite well, all thanks to bronze’s innate material properties. For this reason, after sintering, sintering is performed with particles made of Cu—Ni alloy powder or particles made of Ni—Cu alloy powder, and free graphite 13 exists in the pores at the grain boundaries of the sintered particles 11. The structure shown in FIG. Krytox synthetic greases and oils used in bearings and sintered bearings provide longer-lasting lubrication, reducing relubrication frequency. A Cu-based sintered bearing in which the content of C alloyed with the substrate in the Cu—Ni main phase grains is 0.02 mass% or more and 0.10 mass% or less.

The Cu-based sintered bearing according to claim 1, wherein the content of C as free graphite existing at a grain boundary between the Cu-Ni main phase grains is 0.988 mass% or more and 4 mass% or less. Next, the raw material powder was blended at the ratio shown in Table 1, and 0.5% zinc stearate was further added and mixed for 20 minutes with a V-type mixer to produce a mixed powder. In the oil-impregnated sintered bearing 20 of the second embodiment shown in FIG. This electro-sintered bearing unit is a unit obtained by adding a metal housing 55 to the configuration shown in FIG. 3.3 Machining or grinding of the bearing surface of a porous sintered bushing is not recommended due to the risk of closing the bearing pores. At Technoslide, we offer a standard range of sintered self-lubricating bearings , but that is not all that we have to offer. This modeling is appropriate because the angle between the shaft and bearing surfaces is usually very small. In addition, in the second region 6B and the third region 6C, enlarged diameter portions 6b and 6c that are provided continuously from the straight hole portion 6a on both sides in the longitudinal direction respectively, have a diameter that monotonously increases outwards, and forms a tapered shape are provided. Further, according to the Cu-based sintered bearing of the present invention, there are C alloyed with the base (C in the Cu—Ni main phase grains) and C existing as free graphite in the alloy. 11. The electrically conductive sintered bearing unit according to claim 10, wherein the axial position restricting portion is made of a low friction material. Accordingly, enclosed oil components do not deteriorate or get lost because of the atmospheric temperature like the sintered bearings, freeing the service life of bearings from the effects of the amount of enclosed lubricant and the atmospheric temperature. Further, as described above, the ratio of the maximum radial drop amount γ of the crowning portion with respect to the total axial length A of the oil-impregnated sintered bearing is made very small, whereby it is possible to pull out a core rod for the sizing of the inner periphery of the oil-impregnated sintered bearing without exerting any excessive force due to spring-back at the time of sizing. All spherical bearings can be supplied in various grades of sintered bronze and iron, with lubricants to suit different applications. Generally, the sliding characteristics (friction coefficient, wear amount, service life of bearings, etc.) of sintered bearings depend on the enclosed lubricant. By the oil membrane of the conductive oil, the rotation of the electric sintered bearing 50 is supported by the shaft 51 without contact, and simultaneously electric charge supplied to the shaft 51 is fed, in the order of the shaft 51 → the oil membrane (conductive material in the oil membrane) →the electric sintered bearing 50.

If you work with applications where low noise is of importance and where the loads are variable, sintered bearings are most probably the preferred bearing to use. As a device for sliding the core rod 34, an air cylinder or a hydraulic cylinder can be used. On the other hand, in the upper side of the cavity, the powder mixture continuously drops along the surface of the core rod for a longer period of time than in the lower side, and a larger amount of the Cu powder is attached to the surface of the core rod than in the lower side. The relative merits of oil-impregnated porous metal bearings obtained by the pressing and sintering of copper, iron, or aluminium alloy powders are described. The area ratio of the Cu phase in the central portion 3BS along the shaft line of the second region 3B can be computed, for example, as described below. The control of oil-wettability of the shaft surface could be an effective means of reducing friction for oil-impregnated sintered bearings. C contained in the Cu—Ni raw material powder has an effect of suppressing sintering of the raw material powders. Bronze bushings (also called bronze bearings or solid bronze bushings) are hard and strong, as opposed to softer brass bushings.

In particular, it is known that a Cu-based material is useful for obtaining a low coefficient of friction in a sintered oil-impregnated bearing in which lubricating oil is taken in and lubricated into pores. The density in a section preserving oil pressure (6), which extends from the sliding face of the bearing main body toward the outer side of the diameter, is made higher than the density in other sections (7) of the bearing main body. In the above-described inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 3, the area ratio of the Cu phase in a central portion 3BS along the shaft line of the second region 3B is set to 80% or more and 100% or less of that in the central portion 3CS along the shaft line of the third region 3C. This shows that, in the inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 3, for example, in the entire region from the first opening 3E1 through the second opening 3E2, the area ratio of the Cu phase does not significantly decrease and changes up to a maximum of approximately 20%.

Oil-impregnated sintered bearings are widely used in various products. Accordingly, there are two general methods to secure the service life of sintered bearings. The electro-sintered bearing 50 is made of a sintered metal and is formed into a cylindrical shape, and the internal pores thereof are impregnated with electro-conductive oil. The column 3AS portion” in Table 3 shows the ratios (%) of the areas occupied by the Cu phase relative to the areas of the inner circumferential surfaces S in the central portions 3AS of the first regions 3A in the inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 3 of FIG. Sintered bronze in particular is frequently used as a material for bearings , since its porosity allows lubricants to flow through it or remain captured within it. Sintered copper may be used as a wicking structure in certain types of heat pipe construction, where the porosity allows a liquid agent to move through the porous material via capillary action For materials that have high melting points such as molybdenum , tungsten , rhenium , tantalum , osmium and carbon , sintering is one of the few viable manufacturing processes. 4 is a main portion-enlarged cross-sectional view showing a main portion of the oil-impregnated sintered bearing in an enlarged manner. For optimum performance the bearing conditions should favour the formation of a hydrodynamic film of oil over the bearing surface. Origin: EP2824340A1 Provided is a sintered bearing (1) including an inner layer (2) and an outer layer (3) formed by integral molding, the sintered bearing (1) having a bearing surface (A) formed on an inner peripheral surface (2a) of an inner layer (2).

DescriptionMaterial:Sintered bronze similar to SINT A50.Version:Oil impregnated (ca. 1) is rotated at a high speed, it is possible to reliably prevent the local abrasion of the inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 3 that is configured to receive the rotating shaft 2 or a local increase in the friction force. Further, due to the spring-back when the radial pressing force is canceled, the core rod 13 can be easily pulled out of the sintered bearing material 11 without having to exert any excessive force. SOLUTION: This electric sintered bearing unit comprises an electric sintered bearing 50, a shaft 51 inserted into an inner periphery of the electric sintered bearing 50, and washers 51, 52 as main elements. It is preferable that an interval d2 between both straight lines L1a and L1b is slightly larger than a diameter D of the rotating shaft 2 and almost equal to an inner diameter of the straight hole portion 6a, but is not limited thereto. In the initial state described above, the core rod 13 and the upper punch 14 are lowered integrally; the core rod 13 is inserted into the inner periphery of the sintered bearing material 11, and at the same time, the upper punch 14 is pressed against the upper end surface of the sintered bearing material 11. As a result, the distance between the opposing end surfaces of the upper and lower punches 14 and 15 abutting the sintered bearing material 11 is set to a predetermined value.

By matching the material and particle size to the ware being sintered, surface damage and contamination can be reduced while maximizing furnace loading. 5. A sintered bearing as claimed in claim 1 wherein the copper-base alloy contains zinc in a proportion up to 5% by weight. In the first region 3A, the second region 3B, and the third region 3C, the area ratios of the Cu phase to the unit areas of at least the friction surfaces that are the respective surfaces thereof need to be in the above-described ranges, and, furthermore, a region in which the above-described area ratios of the Cu phase are maintained may extend from the surfaces in a predetermined thickness range. JP 2003-120673 A discloses an oil-impregnated sintered bearing having tapered surfaces expanding its diameter in opposite directions at both axial ends of its inner periphery. In order to suppress the increase of the rotational torque, the axial position restricting portion can be made of a low friction material. This shows that, in the inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 6, for example, in the entire region from the first opening 6E1 through the second opening 6E2 (the entire region from the enlarged diameter portion 6b through the enlarged diameter portion 6c across the straight hole portion 6a), the area ratio of the Cu phase does not significantly decrease and changes up to a maximum of approximately 20%. As the mixing ratio of the Cu powder 42 increases, the area ratio of the Cu phase increases, and the difference of the area ratio of the Cu phase in the inside surface S of the bearing hole 3 decreases.
