Product description

Why Ames-LFC®?
Better than Bronze for:
- Initial friction coefficient
- Steady-state friction coefficient
- Material cost
Similar to Bronze for:
- Corrosion resistance
Typical applications:
Equipment requiring low electrical current consumption and/or low noise
Equipment working in start-stop conditions, where the initial friction coefficient must be minimized
Equipment working with stationary shaft and rotating bearing
- Automotive: Fans / Sunroofs / Mirrors / Brakes / Starters
- Domestic appliances
- Industrial
Open porosity throughout inner diameter: oil feed assured
Oil impregnation ratio > 90%
Radial crushing strength > 200 MPa
Corrosion resistance similar to Bronze
Life testing:
> 1.000 hours at PV = 5 MPa·m/s, v = 1 m/s, linear and rotational, mineral oil 68 cSt
> 10.000 hours in fan motor at 25ºC (mineral oil)
> 10.000 hours in fan motor at 120ºC (synthetic oil)

AMES-LFC. Double-layer material

Low friction at low cost with high load capacityread more

Mechanical and hydraulic parts

The equipment goods industry is a major user of sintered components. Since the profitability of purchased sintered parts increases with the annual output, it is easily understood that the largest users of sintered components are in the automotive, household appliances, handtools, and some other industries more

Soft-magnetic sintered parts

Soft sintered magnetic components are widely used in electromagnetic systems with two clear aims: to convert a movement into an electrical signal (sensors), or to convert an electric signal into a movement (actuators). AMES can offer a wide diversity of materials and processes, suitable for customizing more

Filters and porous metallic components

AMES produces short and large series of metallic sintered filters and silencers mainly in bronze and stainless steel, although other alloys are also available. Our trademark Bronfil® is well known for silencers and filtering discs. Filters and porous metallic components have some particular characteristics: more

Self-Lubricating Sintered Bearings

AMES is considered as one of the main specialists worldwide in the manufacture of self-lubricating sintered bearings in bronze and iron material using a wide range of lubricating oils (mineral and synthetic). AMES produces both standard as well as special bearings according to the drawing of the customer. Our more
