Heavy Equipment Linkage Bushings
ToughMet alloy supports heavier loads and increases equipment uptime in high pressure, low speed applications. Resists wear and corrosion by debris. It is anti-galling and allows heavy edge loading.
- Mining shovel and dragline undercarriage bearings
- Large excavator bucket bushings
- Continuous miners
- Extrusion press plates
- Marine prop shaft bushings
