Sleeve Bearing

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.

Face Cutter

Face Cutter Basics

Face milling (or facing) is a machining technique that cuts away a thin layer of materials away from a workpiece. The purpose of a face milling process is not to change the shape/form of the workpiece, but to create a fine surface finish. This technique is performed by a face cutter and best for processing workpieces with large flat surfaces.
