Plastic Compound Bushings
Bushings made out of plastics are created by combining various kinds of resins(s) with reinforcement fibers as base material. They are typically produced by using injection molding machines and are especially well suited for mass production, low cost, and short delivery time – even for custom orders. The applications for plastic bushings include high load with high speed and lower friction request, (such as with the automotive industry, office automation machines, sports machines, chemical machines etc.) Compared with the metal bushes, plastic bushing save tremendously in weight and are generally more cost efficient.
