Choosing the right Babbitt alloy helps to increase a bearing’s useful life Reliable machine operation depends on a properly working bearing assembly. If there is a failure within the bearing, such as a decrease in lubrication, the resulting heat from friction can not only decrease the life of the bearing but also cause equipment to…

Babbitt metals ensure machinery runs smoothly Bearings play an integral role in machine efficiency by reducing friction between moving parts. The earliest recorded examples of bearing usage date back to the Romans, and in the year 1500, Leonardo da Vinci sketched a design for a helicopter that incorporated ball bearings. Today, common types of bearings…
