Graphite or Grooving for Lubrication
Graphite is a dry form of lubrication that reduces friction between two metal surfaces. This form of lubrication can withstand higher temperatures than liquid or oil based lubricants. Graphiting is accomplished by grooving the ID face of the bearing and then pressing graphite into the cavities under extremely high pressure. Graphite is often used in bearing lubrication for hard to reach places that cannot be lubricated manually.
Diversified Bronze is skilled in the use of graphite as a lubricant in custom machined parts such as bushings and bearings. We also specialize in precision grooving within tight tolerances for all types of parts and for a wide variety of industries. Bring us your build-to-print project and we will take it from there.
