‘Vesconite Hilube bushings show no signs of wear after 7253 hours in 3D printer’
25 May 2018

” We recently needed to replace the worn brass bushings on one of our 3D printers. We produce components for businesses and factories as well as a range of toys, meaning that the printers work around the clock. The original brass bushings on the machine had worn considerably from use, as well as from the lubricating paste applied to them, which over time becomes abrasive, wearing the shaft down as well. We approached Vesconite Bearings who confirmed that their self-lubricating Vesconite Hilube was the right product for the job. They were able to machine to spec and supply the required bushings within 5 days of us placing the order, impressive indeed. To date the machine has printed for 7253 hours, has required no lubrication and shows no sign of wear on either the shafts or the bushings.”
