Custom Flange Bushings
The ability to withstand loads repeatedly is critical for heavy machinery. Boost equipment performance with flange bushings from U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine.
What’s a flange bushing?
Flange bushings are sleeve-type bushings, and one end has a flange or shoulder. The flange aides alignment and mounting. It also makes installation easier.
This bushing type is perfect for through-bolt applications. It can be easily mounted parallel to a plate and is more compact than fitting a straight bushing into a flanged housing.
