Sleeve Bearings are Super Important Components!

Sleeve bearings are an altered tube or pipe with the inner surface machined to a  shaft of a certain diameter. They make linear movement between two sections simpler. Sleeve bearings are made of metal, plastic, or fiber-reinforced composite sleeves that minimize vibration and noise by using a sliding motion to absorb friction between two moving parts. Let us find out why these inconspicuous components are crucial for many machines.
