Angst+Pfister offers a wide range of standard finished parts in the field of slide bearings, bearing bushes, collar bearing bushes, guide tapes and foil bearings. 

 

Plain bearing bushes

In this area we offer you a large assortment of different bearing bushes with and without collar. Our standard range includes high-performance plastics such as galvanized PTFE, PTF HP108, modified PET-C variants and polyamide 66.

They are typically applied as axial-radial bearings for rough, low-wear operation (e.g. for lever and hinge bearings), as guides for rotating shafts in machine and vehicle construction, and also in dry running operation as electrically insulating bushings for flange bolts. Our bearing bushes are used for sliding, rotating, lifting or pivoting movements. The plain bearings can be used at low speeds in machines and constructions.

The ideal solution for use in mechanical and apparatus engineering, in drive technology and in vehicle construction, can be found in our range of plain bearings. 
 

Guide tapes

Guide tapes are ideal for backlash-free guidance of pistons and piston rods in hydraulics, as well as for cost and space-saving storage of lubricated pivots and shafts (e.g. for levers with swivel movements). With our high performance fluoroplastics there are no limits to the application. PTFE 225, PTFE 660, PTFE 904 offer many advantages such as a no stick-slip effect, extremely low coefficient of sliding friction, excellent chemical resistance and a wide temperature range. 

Our guide tapes are suitable for a very wide range of applications, such as for play-free bearing of shafts and pivots in chemical apparatus engineering. They can be used for slow rotational, swivel and lifting movements.
 

Foil bearings

Our foil bearings made of high-performance PTFE compounds offer an extremely low coefficient of sliding friction, high wear resistance, extreme high and low temperature resistance, as well as excellent chemical resistance.

Our foil bearings can be used as floating bearings in bore or shaft grooves, as very wear-resistant, clearance-free bearings for shafts, rods and trunnions, and of course much more. They are suitable for rotation and stroke movements in dry running conditions.

Furthermore, we are happy to manufacture our film bearings according to your individual specifications – whether you you need them readily cut to circumferential lenghts, with bevel cut, in our highly wear-resistant APSOplast® PTFE VF special compound, as thrust washers, punched or turned –  send us your enquiry at any time!

If you cannot find the right part in our standard range, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will find a solution together.
