Turned bearings are often technically and economically favourable bearing solutions.
High loading capability, low weight, good corrosion resistance and small radial diameters are some good properties for turned bearings. The choice of the suitable material and the arrange of additional lubrication properly are important when using turned bearings.
Turned bearings and bearing elements can be manufactured in several copper alloys. The material will be chosen to meet the specific needs for each construction. This is important to reach the optimal performance for the life time, service and total economy. Properties for the standard materials are on the table. In addition to standard materials there are many other alloys to use when necessary.
