DBM offers a complete line of stock plain bearings, flange bearings and washers made of P/M bronze. DBM sintered bronze stock bearings have long conformed to ASTM chemical and physical properties and are the first to include all ASTM standard sizes to ASTM recommended dimensions and tolerances.

After forming, sintering and sizing, the bearings are vacuum impregnated with SAE 30 oil that provides lubricant which is metered from the bearing to the shaft during rotation. Standard off-the-shelf oil impregnated bronze bearings should function satisfactorily in temperatures ranging from 10°F to 220°F. Consult DBM if application requires higher temperatures or other specific operating conditions.

Powdered Metal SAE 863

  • Solid Bar
  • Cored Bar

SAE 863 Bearings are commonly used in applications requiring a reliable bronze bearing. Applications include Off-road Equipment, winches, sheaves, conveyors pulleys, and other heavily loaded applications.

Additional capabilities include secondary operations such as grooving, milling, and broaching.
