Self-Lubricating Bushings

Galaxy Bearing Company is a premier supplier of self-lubricating bushings qualified to AS81934. Our bushings are approved for self-lubricating watertight door bushing kits and watertight/airtight door hinge applications. The Galaxyon Teflon-based liner in our bushings is highly wear-resistant, operating at dynamic loads up to 33,000 psi and in temperatures ranging from -65 to +325 degrees Fahrenheit with no change in the properties of the liner. Our precision-quality bushings are compatible with a wide range of anti-icing fluids, hydraulic fluids and lubricating oils. Galaxy offers a standard lead-time of three weeks for all stainless steel, and six weeks for aluminum bushings, although our customers often receive shipments within one week after placing an order. Our low overhead means competitive pricing for top-quality self-lubricating bushings from Galaxy Bearing Company. Let us quote on your next requirement.

M81934 Bushings In Stock

While many self-lubricating bushing manufacturers are quoting lead times of thirty-two weeks or more, Galaxy Bearing Company has achieved a standard delivery of three weeks for stainless steel, six weeks for aluminum bushings, and our customers often receive their shipments within one week. This is among the best service in the business; but we did not stop there. Galaxy has recently implemented an initiative to maintain an in-house stock of every M81934 bushing configuration available for immediate delivery to our customers. When completed, our customers will have instant access to self-lubricating bushings available for next-day shipment anywhere in the world - with the same cost-effective pricing as our normal deliveries. This level of customer service is evident in everything we do at Galaxy Bearing Company. Let us perform for you.

Cleaner Parts Mean Better Bushings

Galaxy Bearing Company has recently invested in a new, state-of-the-art ultrasonic cleaning system for use in our assembly process. During our liner bonding process, each component must be completely clean and free of foreign particulate matter in order to insure a consistent, high-reliability bond. Our modern in-house ultrasonic cleaning process removes contaminants down to the sub-micron level, allowing Galaxy to control and maintain the high quality and integrity of our products. Continuous investment in advanced equipment is part of our overall commitment to quality at Galaxy - and our promise to you to remain at the cutting-edge of self-lubricating bushing technology.
