The shaft of a jigsaw is guided in porous bearings. 2, 53 themselves are formed of a self-lubricating resin material, and washers 52, 53 are formed of a metal material or the like, and a film of a low friction material is formed on the surface thereof (at least the surface in contact with the end surface of the electro-sintered bearing 50). In the above-described bearing 40 of the third embodiment as well, in the inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 6, the area ratio of the Cu phase in a central portion 6BS along the shaft line of the enlarged diameter portion 6b formed in the second region 6B is set to 80% or more and 100% or less of the area ratio of the Cu phase in a central portion 6CS along the shaft line of the enlarged diameter portion 6c formed in the third region 6C. The area ratio of the Cu phase in the central portion 6BS along the shaft line of the enlarged diameter portion 6b formed in the second region 6B is preferably 90% or more and preferably 100% or less of the area ratio of the Cu phase in the central portion 6CS along the shaft line of the enlarged diameter portion 6c formed in the third region 6C, but is not limited thereto. If you work with applications where low noise is of importance and where the loads are variable, sintered bearings are most probably the preferred bearing to use. As a device for sliding the core rod 34, an air cylinder or a hydraulic cylinder can be used. On the other hand, in the upper side of the cavity, the powder mixture continuously drops along the surface of the core rod for a longer period of time than in the lower side, and a larger amount of the Cu powder is attached to the surface of the core rod than in the lower side. The relative merits of oil-impregnated porous metal bearings obtained by the pressing and sintering of copper, iron, or aluminium alloy powders are described. The area ratio of the Cu phase in the central portion 3BS along the shaft line of the second region 3B can be computed, for example, as described below. The control of oil-wettability of the shaft surface could be an effective means of reducing friction for oil-impregnated sintered bearings. C contained in the Cu—Ni raw material powder has an effect of suppressing sintering of the raw material powders. Bronze bushings (also called bronze bearings or solid bronze bushings) are hard and strong, as opposed to softer brass bushings.

We offer sintered bushes, self lubricating bushes, powder metal parts, sintered iron, sintered bronze bushes, sintered gears, sintered rotors, automotive components amd diesel engines parts. In other words, the bearings will perform at least as good as sintered bronze bearings. 2 is a cross-sectional view showing an example in which a dynamic pressure generating groove is formed on the inner peripheral surface of an electrically conductive sintered bearing unit. Copper layer on surface, formed by adding copper powder to sintered iron, lends to sliding performance similar to or better than that of bronze sintered bearings. In the oil-impregnated sintered bearing that is the aspect of the present invention, in the first region, the Cu phase formed of Cu powder including Cu-based flat raw material powder is formed, and an area occupied by the Cu phase relative to an area of the inner circumferential surface in a center along the shaft direction of the first region is 50% or more. There is also a good range of Rollers – Durasoft – Shaft Mount – Black Neoprene on the Small Parts and Bearings website. The present invention has been made in consideration of the above-described circumstances, and an object of the present invention is to provide an oil-impregnated sintered bearing for which a Fe—Cu-based sintered metal including Cu-based flat raw material powder is used and in which the uneven distribution of a Cu phase in an inner circumferential surface of a bearing hole is decreased, whereby both bearing performance in a slow rotation and high load state and bearing performance in a fast rotation and low load state can be enhanced to the maximum extent and stabilized sliding properties can be obtained. You might also be interested in the range of Housings – Bearing – Pillow Block – Die Cast on the Miniature Bearings Australia site. In particular, it is known that a Cu-based material is useful for obtaining a low coefficient of friction in a sintered oil-impregnated bearing in which lubricating oil is taken in and lubricated into pores. The density in a section preserving oil pressure (6), which extends from the sliding face of the bearing main body toward the outer side of the diameter, is made higher than the density in other sections (7) of the bearing main body. In the above-described inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 3, the area ratio of the Cu phase in a central portion 3BS along the shaft line of the second region 3B is set to 80% or more and 100% or less of that in the central portion 3CS along the shaft line of the third region 3C. This shows that, in the inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 3, for example, in the entire region from the first opening 3E1 through the second opening 3E2, the area ratio of the Cu phase does not significantly decrease and changes up to a maximum of approximately 20%.

Those bearing materials consist of 90% bronze, 10% tin and often some addition of graphite and lead to improve dry running properties. 6. A sintered bearing as claimed in claim 1 wherein the particles of the metal powders are mesh in size. Installation has to be done very carefully, since porose bearings can be deformed quite easily. 4. A production method for the oil-impregnated sintered bearing according to claim 1, the method comprising at least: a material loading step of loading a powder mixture including an Fe powder and a Cu powder into a cavity of a mold from an upper side in a vertical direction; a core rod sliding step of sliding a core rod that is configured to penetrate into the cavity and shape the bearing hole along the vertical direction in the cavity, and a step of forming an enlarged diameter portion in each of the second region and the third region by enlarging diameters of the second region and the third region by performing sizing into a predetermined depth on each end of the bearing hole, wherein the core rod sliding step is a step of collecting the Cu powder in a portion with which the core rod comes into contact in the cavity, and Cu foil powder is used as the Cu powder. Small Parts & Bearings is part of MBA Group offering a select range from the MBA Group catalogue. When the bearing main body 1 is seen on a cross section along the shaft line of the rotating shaft 2 (refer to FIG. The standard bearing materials in the METAFRAM® sintered bronze series include GGB-BP25 , GGB-FP20 and GGB-SO16 which are available in a standard assortment of cylindrical bearings and flanged bushes. The difference between this kind of material and more famous Bronze” type is the volume of oil impregnation, that in this case is 25% ÷ 33% Standard Sint A00 DIN 30910. The powder mixture 43 that is used in the present embodiment is formed by mixing, for example, the Fe powder 41 having an average particle size of 50 μm to 100 μm and the flat Cu powder 42 including Cu foil pieces having an average diameter of 50 μm to 100 μm and a thickness of approximately 1 μm to 10 μm. The mixing ratio between the Fe powder 41 and the Cu powder 42 including Cu-based flat raw material powder is, for example, in a range of 20:80 to 90:10 (weight ratio). Therefore, for example, when the rotating shaft 2 is rotated at a high speed, it is possible to reliably prevent the local abrasion of the inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 3 that is configured to receive the rotating shaft 2 or a local increase in the friction force. However, as will be shown below, imparting the low oil wettability to the shaft can be a relatively simple way to basically improve the lubrication condition for oil-impregnated sintered bearings. 8, the outer peripheral surface (sliding surface) 22a of the shaft 22 may slide locally at an axial end of the bearing surface 21a of the oil-impregnated sintered bearing 21, and there is a fear of stress concentration being generated in the sliding region of the bearing surface 21a. In the core rod sliding step, the Cu powder 42 is collected, and the Cu powder 42 is disposed in the portion with which the core rod 34 comes into contact, but the amount of the Cu powder 42 being disposed is not particularly limited. 8 is a sectional view of a conventional oil-impregnated sintered bearing. The lubricant is uniformly dispersed sintered bearing throughout the sliding layer and thus there is no reduction in low friction bearing performance, even if the sliding layer becomes worn. Thus, in the oil-impregnated sintered bearing as disclosed in JP 2003-120673 A, when relative wobbling motion occurs between the shaft and the oil-impregnated sintered bearing, the outer peripheral surface of the shaft slides locally on the border portions between the tapered regions and the non-tapered region of the inner peripheral surface of the oil-impregnated sintered bearing, or slides locally on the tapered regions. Due to this arrangement, the configuration of the crowning portions 1c formed is of high precision. That is, the core rod sliding step is a step of collecting the Cu powder 42, particularly, the Cu foil pieces in a portion with which the core rod 34 comes into contact in the cavity P and adjusting the disposition of the Cu powder. Miniature Bearings Australia offers 125205 products in 2459 categories including ball bearings, thrust bearings, ceramic and hybrid bearings, stainless steel bearings, miniature bearings, shafting, couplings, screws, socket cap, dental bearings, magnets, sprockets, timing belts and pulleys, corrosion resistant – see the full listing in the Online Catalogue We have excellent Freight Rates within Australia and worldwide. In addition, as a comparative example, an enlarged photograph of a location corresponding to the central portion 3BS along the shaft line of the second region 3B and an enlarged photograph of a location corresponding to the central portion 3CS along the shaft line of the third region 3C in a bearing for which the core rod sliding step was not carried out and the disposition of the Cu foil pieces was not adjusted are shown in FIG.

In a case where the powder mixture is simply dropped from the upper side of the cavity in the vertical direction in the material loading step, the amount of the Cu powder being attached to the surface of the core rod increases toward the upper side of the cavity. Moreover, when content of C contained in raw material powder exceeds 0.10 mass%, sintering of raw material powders will not progress easily, and the expansion of the dimension by sintering will become large. The shaft 2 made of an Fe-based alloy is likely to be seized depending on the material of the bearing 1 (for example, when an Fe-based alloy is used). 2, the generation of vibration and noise in the rolling bearings is unavoidable (generally, the vibration of rolling bearings causes rolling elements to roll on the raceway surface). 18. The method for producing a Cu-based sintered bearing according to claim 17, wherein a sum of C contained in the raw material powder and C derived from the graphite powder is 0.02 mass% or more and 4 mass% or less. The next figure explains how the SELFOIL® bearings work, detailing the self-lubrication mechanism. In addition, in the production method for an oil-impregnated sintered bearing that is the other aspect of the present invention, the core rod sliding step is a step of collecting the Cu powder in a portion with which the core rod comes into contact in the cavity. Generally, friction of oil-impregnated sintered bearings is larger than fully lubricated bearings, because they are often under boundary lubrication condition. Some exuded oil returns into the pores of the bearing body by capillary force and also leading to insufficient oil on the sliding surface 4 , 6 The porous surface of the bearing means a reduction in the load area, which lowers the loading capacity of the bearing. Next, a production method for the oil-impregnated sintered bearing described in the first embodiment will be described. 6A is a schematic cross-sectional view showing a production method for the oil-impregnated sintered bearing of the present invention. There is also a good range of Rollers – Durasoft – Shaft Mount – Coloured Urethane on the Small Parts and Bearings website. Thus, it is possible to prevent burrs from entering the gap between the oil-impregnated sintered bearing 1 and the shaft 22 to thereby deteriorate the bearing performance. Generally speaking, in an oil-impregnated sintered bearing of this type, the inner diameter of the bearing surface provided in the inner periphery thereof is uniform over its entire axial dimension, and sliding (supporting) is effected between the shaft and the entire bearing surface. In addition, the area occupied by the Cu phase relative to the area of the inner circumferential surface S in a central portion 3AS of the first region 3A is set to 50% or more. The Cu-based sintered bearing according to claim 1, wherein the content of C as the sum is 0.02 mass% or more and 3 mass% or less. In the present embodiment, the ratio of the cells of the copper matrix is computed as an area ratio of the Cu phase in the central portion 3BS along the shaft line of the second region 3B. It is possible to provide a Cu-based sintered bearing having high strength and wear resistance and high dimensional accuracy. In the verification, an oil-impregnated sintered bearing having a taper angle θ1 of 0.1° was regarded as a sample 9, and an oil-impregnated sintered bearing having a taper angle θ1 of 4.0° was regarded as a sample 10. For the respective samples, clearance was adjusted to accordingly accelerate sliding in the enlarged diameter portions. Sintered bearing lubrication requires high performance products, lasting in service for all the life of the equipment without compromising the performance. Standard Oilite bearings are impregnated with a highly refined mineral oil to ISO VG (SAE 30) having a high viscosity index and containing anti-oxidant, anti-rust and defoamant additives. That is, when the powder mixture is loaded into the cavity of the mold through which the core rod has been penetrated, the lower side of the cavity is first buried by the powder mixture in the initial phase of the loading. Please keep the bearings in aluminium foil or in their plastic bags until they are installed. There is also a good range of Housings – Bearing – Pillow Block – Die Cast on the Small Parts and Bearings website. Furthermore, the diameter of the through hole in the sintered body is expanded up to a predetermined depth on both sides by sizing, thereby forming the bearing main body 1 including the straight hole portion 4a and the enlarged diameter portions 4b and 4c. 7B are schematic cross-sectional views showing a production method for the oil-impregnated sintered bearing of the present invention stepwise. 10, it was confirmed that, when the bearing hole of the oil-impregnated sintered bearing is provided with a shape made up of the straight hole portion 4a and the enlarged diameter portions 4b and 4c, it is possible to more significantly decrease the friction coefficient compared with oil-impregnated sintered bearings in which the bearing hole is provided with a straight tube shape as a whole.

These effects would yield the oil-rich and better lubrication condition leading to lower friction of the PTFE-coated shaft. Thus, in the oil-impregnated sintered bearing 1 with the crowning portions 1c of the above-mentioned configuration, it is possible to form the crowning portions 1c at the axial ends simultaneously by one sizing process. The Cu-based sintered bearing according to claim 1, wherein the content of C as free graphite existing at a grain boundary between the Cu-Ni main phase grains is 4 mass% or less. The oil contained in the porosity provides a constant lubrication between bearing and shaft, so the system does not need any additional external lubricant. We also know bronze bearings encourage capillary action, so an oily film forms quickly, pretty much as soon as a bearing spins up to speed. 1. In addition, the ratios between Fe and Cu in specimens used in the verification were approximately 50:50 in the sample 5, approximately 85:15 in the sample 6, and approximately 95:5 in the sample 7. On the samples 5 to 7, the core rod sliding step was not carried out. The oil-impregnated sintered bearing 1 is incorporated for use into a power transmission mechanism for a power window as shown, for example, in FIG. With a structure in which the rotation of the roller is supported by rolling bearings like the support structure in Fig. The PTFE-coated shaft was found to retain a larger amount of oil droplets in the bearing clearance than the noncoated shaft and make secure oil circulation in the clearance. The present invention relates to an oil-impregnated sintered bearing formed of a Fe—Cu-based sintered metal and a production method therefor. The Cu-based sintered bearing according to claim 1, wherein the C content as the total is 1% by mass or more and 3% by mass or less. Usually, contact angles could vary between receding and advancing contact angles, which is called contact angle hysteresis 22 , 23 , and the variable range depends on the liquid and surface material. Further, a high lubricating performance is obtained by the lubricating action of the free lubricating graphite 13 having high lubricity distributed in the pores 12 distributed and distributed in the Cu-based sintered member 10. In addition, the wear resistance is further improved by the lubricating oil impregnated in the pores 12 of the Cu-based sintered member 10. A preferred ratio of the area ratio of the Cu phase relative in the central portion 3BS along the shaft line of the second region 3B to the area ratio of the Cu phase relative in the central portion 3CS along the shaft line of the third region 3C in the oil-impregnated sintered bearing 10 of the first embodiment shown in FIG. In particular, seizure can be suppressed by using a bearing made of a Cu-based sintered member (Cu-based sintered bearing) for supporting a rotating shaft made of an Fe-based alloy. You might also be interested in the range of Pulleys – Blocks – Flat on the Miniature Bearings Australia site. An oil film is formed by exuding into a gap (mainly a bearing gap) between the two, and the rotation of one of the two is supported in a non-contact manner with respect to the other by the oil film. Of these, bronze-based and phosphor-bronze-based materials have low material strength in the first place and cannot be used under conditions where high surface pressure is applied. Lubricants based upon PAGs, esters, and perfluorinated aliphatic ether PFAE provide excellent performance in sintered bearings and the lubricants based on esters and PAOs perform well in high-speed spindle bearings. Hereinafter, oil-impregnated sintered bearings that are embodiments to which the present invention is applied will be described with reference to drawings. Raw material for sintered parts like slide bearings, bushed or other formed components is metal powder made of iron, bronze or other metals. In an oil-impregnated sintered bearing (hereinafter, simply regarded as the bearing) 40, a bearing hole 6 into which the rotating shaft 2 is scheduled to be inserted is provided inside the bearing main body (sintered body) 1 formed of a Fe—Cu-based sintered metal. In addition to bearings, the technology can be applied to a wide range of fields, as it can be used in composite material products with integrated resin parts, or applied to sliding materials other than bearings. The Cu-based sintered bearing according to claim 1, wherein the content of P is 0.1% by mass or more and 0.55% by mass or less. Based on powder metallurgy technology, sintered bronze bearings deliver a very familiar feature. The impregnating oil or fluid ensures permanent lubrication of the bearings. The Cu-based sintered bearing according to claim 1, wherein the porosity is 8% or more and 25% or less. There is also a good range of Rollers – Solid – Stud Mount – Black Neoprene on the Small Parts and Bearings website.

NTN’s newly developed BEARPHITE CL” is an iron-based sintered bearing with a small quantity of unique copper powder, and special material composition to form a specially designed copper layer on the bearing surface. NTN state that this combination has resulted in a high level of productivity, while also delivering outstanding sliding characteristics and wear resistance without the need for lubricating oil. Bearings made from bronze and steel, oil impregnated for self lubrication. However, oil-impregnated sintered bearings cannot be used in certain applications where the lubricant may adhere to surrounding components and cause a reduction in performance, or hot environments where the lubricant is prone to evaporation, such as the inside of photocopiers or automobile headlights. We manufacture specific bearings to meet your requirements when standard products are not suitable. As a result, the configuration of the master form 13a is transferred to the inner peripheral surface 11a of the sintered bearing material 11, and the crowning portions 1c at the axial ends are simultaneously formed. Before the shafts were pulled out and the photos were taken, the shafts were rotated several times by hand in the bearings. An amazing example of the versatility of self-lubricating bearings in the aerospace industry is the use of DU® anti friction bearings in NASA’s Curiosity rover , which has been exploring the red planet since 2012. The sintered bronze bearings are made of porous bronze or iron and are usually filled with oil. This means the oil-rich and secure oil exuding condition for the sliding area of the PTFE-coated shaft and relatively oil-poor condition for the noncoated shaft. Standard Oilite oil retaining tin bronze is the generally specified material. 1) is inserted into the inner periphery of the oil-impregnated sintered bearing 1. In this case, the oil-impregnated sintered bearing 1 has at the axial ends of the bearing surface 1a thereof, the crowning portions 1c of a configuration as defined by the above formulas 1 and 2. As a result, even when deflection is generated in the shaft 22, the configuration of the bearing surface 1a of the oil-impregnated sintered bearing 1 is in conformity with the outer peripheral surface (sliding surface) 22a of the deflected shaft 22. As a result, the outer peripheral surface 22a of the shaft 22 slides on the entire region of the bearing surface 1a or a wide region thereof including the rounded curved surfaces 1d. As a result, stress concentration on the bearing surface 1a of the oil-impregnated sintered bearing 1 is mitigated, and it is possible to attain a smooth sliding state between the components 1 and 22 while preventing wear of the oil-impregnated sintered bearing 1 and generation of unusual noise due to stress concentration. To such a metal material as the sliding material. The structure may be such that the outer peripheral surface of the electrically conductive sintered bearing 50 is directly fixed to the inner periphery of the charging roller 40. The enlarged diameter portion 6b is provided as a chamfered portion and provided to facilitate the passing of the rotating shaft 2 mainly through the straight hole portion 6a and thus, generally, does not come into contact with the rotating shaft 2 even when the rotating shaft 2 is dislocated from the bearing main body 1. In the enlarged diameter portion 6b, an angle (taper angle) formed by an inclined surface of the enlarged diameter portion and an inner surface of the straight hole portion 6a (or the shaft line of the rotating shaft 2) parallel to the shaft direction of the bearing main body 1 is preferably 30° to 180°, but is not limited thereto. An oil-impregnated sintered bearing having a Fe—Cu-based sintered body being impregnated with, a bearing hole being formed in the Fe—Cu-based sintered body and configured to be penetrated by and support a rotating shaft, in which an inner circumferential surface of the bearing hole includes a first region forming a central portion in a shaft direction, a second region from a first end portion of the first region to a first opening of the bearing hole, and a third region from a second end portion of the first region to a second opening of the bearing hole, in the second region and the third region, a Cu phase formed of Cu powder including Cu-based flat raw material powder is formed, and an area ratio of the Cu phase of the second region in a center along the shaft direction is 80% or more and 100% or less of an area ratio of the Cu phase of the third region in a center along the shaft direction. In the first region 6A set in the inner circumferential surface S of the bearing hole 6, a straight hole portion 6a having a diameter that is slightly larger than the diameter of the rotating shaft 2 and having a diameter that is constant at any location in the longitudinal direction is provided.
