Ensure equipment and machines continue working by keeping the sleeve bearings and linkage pins current. Whenever you need to replace yours, get them from Blanchard Machinery Company, your trusted Cat® dealer in South Carolina.
Sleeve bearings are an integral part of moving machines and equipment. They allow two parts to rotate or move without causing much noise. Sleeve bearings consist of a cylindrical metal sleeve that slips onto a shaft and is held in place by the surrounding housing. The shaft rotates inside the sleeve bearing, which acts as a low-friction connection between the housing and the shaft.
Construction equipment relies on sleeve bearings because of their friction-reducing capabilities. By decreasing friction, the bearings minimize energy loss and prevent wear and tear while ensuring machines operate efficiently. Cat sleeve bearings are durable and can withstand various load strengths.
Linkage pins are a small part of machines but have a significant impact. They connect multiple components to ensure the parts smoothly move and articulate while linked to each other. Linkage pins are cylindrical metal pins with a hole in the center. The pins are the way two components stay together while in motion.
Cat linkage pins are strong and durable, having a greater hardness depth for heat, making them more resistant to high-load conditions. They are available in various sizes, so you can get them based on your application and load requirements.
Sleeve bearings and linkage pins have simple designs, yet they do much to keep parts of equipment and machines moving. Both pieces are part of equipment and devices for various industries, such as:
