Fibers impart abrasion-resistant polymer on the wear surface between the bearing and rotating shaft
Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM), an industry leader in the design, development, and manufacture of highly specialized engineered woven fabrics, offers unique fabrics from specialty fibers ideal for composite bearings and bushing liners in farm and industrial equipment. BRM’s proprietary fabric bearing and bushing liner impart an abrasion-resistant polymer on the wear surface between the bearing and the rotating shaft in small motors, farm equipment, construction equipment, and scissor lifts. They are also a good choice for applications where the bearing is either molded within a polymer housing, must withstand very high-stress loads, or is chosen over metallic roller bearings because composite bearings are virtually maintenance-free.
BRM’s composite fabric contains two to three inherently different fibers to take advantage of each fiber’s unique properties. The proprietary weave construction is designed to provide a maximum bond strength between the liner fabric and the bearing structure, while also providing the abrasion-resistant layer at the wear surface.
