A bushing composed of a non-ferrous material is referred to as a non-ferrous half bush. A bushing, sometimes referred to as a simple bearing or a sleeve bearing, is a cylindrical element used to support and lessen friction between two moving parts.
The word "non-ferrous" designates a substance devoid of iron. Due to their advantageous features, such as good wear resistance, low friction, and corrosion resistance, non-ferrous metals and alloys, such as bronze, brass, copper, aluminium, and different alloys, are frequently used in the production of bushings.
A bushing that has been split into two halves along its length is referred to as a "half bush" in most cases. Because of its design, the bushing may be replaced and installed more quickly without having to take the entire machine or assembly apart. To provide support and lessen friction between the rotating shaft and the surrounding structure, the split halves can be fastened together around a shaft or inside of a housing.
The automotive, industrial machinery, marine, aerospace, and other industries all use non-ferrous half bushes. They are employed in rotating shafts, hinges, pivots, and other devices that need to work smoothly and dependably. The precise non-ferrous material chosen for a half bush is determined by elements including load capacity, operating conditions, lubricant compatibility, and economic considerations.
