Bearing Basics: Just “Plane” Confusing

Posted On August 10, 2015

Plain Bearings VS. Plane Bearings

There is some disagreement in the engineering community as to whether a plain bearing is the same as a plane bearing.  Is a plane bearing a flat bearing, or can it refer to bearings with round surfaces, like journal bearings?  This article may not establish a firm answer to this question, but it will give food for thought.


The controversy began from the first Bearing Basics post.  Here are other artices on polymer bearings :

7 Things about PTFE Bellows You Need to Know

Posted On April 29, 2015

The primary purpose of a typical expansion bellows is to isolate a fluid from neighboring components.  Bellows are used in a variety of applications, including pulse dampeners, HVAC systems, pharmaceutical processing, pollution control, and piping systems.  PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene, or Teflon) is an ideal material for bellows applications, and in this post we are going to explore seven things every engineer needs to know about PTFE bellows.


Here are some other blog posts here at Advnced EMC Technologies on PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene):
