Machining the sliding layer of KS PERMAGLIDE plain bearings
Test methodsCutting tool for KS PERMAGLIDE® P202
The sliding layer of KS PERMAGLIDE® P202 has a machining allowance of around 0.15 mm. This can be machined by turning, drilling or reaming in order to:
- Achieve smaller clearance tolerances
- Compensate for misalignments.
Tried and tested methods are turning and boring with:
- Dry cutting
- Cutting speeds from 100 to 150 m/min
- Feed rate of 0.05 mm/rev
- Cutting depth of max. 0.1 mm
- Carbide tools (Fig. 1)
- Machining temperatures above 140 °C constitute a health hazard.
- Removing more material reduces service life.
- Inexpert machining will have a negative impact on service life and load-bearing capacity.
- Parts must be cleaned after machining.
