IN BRIEF: Mass-produced injection-moulded plastic bearings available

High-accuracy, mass-produced, injection-moulded plastic bearings are now available from Glacier Industrial Bearings. Many polymers are mechanically strong enough to make lightweight bearings. By modifying them with low-friction and low-wear additives, Glacier has produced a range of complex, multi-use components complete with bearing surfaces, lubricant distribution grooves and lip seals. * www.dana.com
