Types of Renewable Bushings
Used in machining applications, bushings help guide, position and support cutting tools, like drill bits. Among the styles of bushings employed by the manufacturing industry today, renewable bushings are designed for use in large production runs, as they offer quick and easy replacement. The two types of renewable bushings are:
- Slip Renewable Bushings – These replaceable bushings are used in applications where you need to perform multiple operations with the same tooling.
- Fixed Renewable Bushings – Featuring “F” or “XF” locks, fixed renewable carbide bushings are used in applications where several bushings will be replaced during the life of the jig. They can be replaced without removing the fixture from the machine.
Why Choose Carbide Renewable Bushings?
When it comes to manufacturing renewable bushings, the two main types of materials used are steel and carbide. While steel offers a lower upfront cost, it’s much less durable than tungsten carbide, which is the strongest natural metal in existence. Because of its resistance to wear and tear, carbide is an ideal choice for renewable bushings. In general, carbide bushings have a much longer life, helping to cut down on production costs. They’re also hard-wearing, which helps minimize losses in productivity due to downtime.
