The creation of graphite-filled bronze bushes demands precision manufacturing techniques to ensure consistent quality and optimal performance. The process begins with selecting high-quality bronze powder and graphite, which are carefully mixed in predetermined proportions to achieve the desired properties.
Next, the mixture undergoes compaction under controlled pressure and temperature, forming the raw bushing blanks. These blanks then undergo sintering, a process where they are heated to a temperature just below the melting point of the bronze. During sintering, the bronze particles fuse together, forming a solid structure with embedded graphite.
After sintering, the bushes are precisely machined to achieve their final dimensions and tolerances. This step is critical to ensure the bushes fit perfectly into their intended applications, whether in heavy machinery, automotive components, or other industrial uses.
