Abstract
In this proposed Phase I Project, Powdermet will develop a low cost solution to contamination issues currently involved in spherical plain airframe bearings. The proposed solution will utilize an advanced low friction cermet. This material will be capable for application as a powder coating or consolidated and adhered inner cylinder for use as the bearing"s self-lubricating liner. The material will exhibit state of the art contamination resistance while minimizing additional friction or cost. Additionally, the material will not increase initial torque on the system nor operating temperature. The result will be a bearing system with increased lifetime compared to current technologies.
