Ceramic bushings are used in mechanical engineering in a variety of applications where high wear resistance, corrosion resistance and thermal stability are required. Here are some of the typical applications and advantages of ceramic bushings in mechanical engineering:

  1. Wear resistance: Ceramic bushings are extremely wear-resistant and last a long time even in extreme conditions, such as high temperatures or abrasive environments.

  2. Low Friction: Due to their smooth surface and low coefficient of friction, ceramic bushings provide excellent lubricity, resulting in more efficient performance.

  3. Corrosion Resistance: Ceramic is chemically inert and resists most chemical attacks, making it ideal for applications in corrosive environments.

  4. Thermal Stability: Ceramic bushings retain their strength and dimensionality even at high temperatures, making them suitable for high temperature applications.

  5. Electrical Insulation: Ceramic is an excellent insulator and can be used in applications where electrical insulation is required.

  6. Lightweight: Compared to metals, ceramic bushings are lighter, which helps reduce the weight of machine components.

  7. Low Maintenance Requirements: Due to their wear resistance and corrosion resistance, ceramic bushings generally require less maintenance and have a longer lifespan compared to traditional metallic bushings.

There are several different processes used to manufacture ceramic bushings for mechanical engineering, including compression molding, injection molding, and CNC machining. The exact method depends on the specific requirements of the application as well as the desired geometric properties of the bushing.

Overall, ceramic bushings offer a number of advantages in mechanical engineering that make them an attractive choice for applications that require high performance and durability.
